Great breakfast options and very affordable! We had breakfast here the first day on the island, and were not disappointed! The pancakes were very good! So were the biscuits.

This is another of my girlfriend and my regular visits on trips to South Padre. We always go for Sunday breakfast. The food isn't out of this world, but is a good ol' soak-up-your-bad-decisions-from-last-night breakfast. The migas are one of their best. The basic breakfast with eggs, toast and bacon is just fine.

Since this place is close to our new condo thought I would check it out. Had a basic ham and cheese omelet, hash browns, and toast. Everything was cooked just right. Now I need to try something from their lunch menu.

We looked up restaurants in South Padre and this one had pretty good reviews. It was the start of our trip and we were excited to experience that local island feel.

The food was fresh & delicious. I really enjoyed the sausage gravy that had giant chunks of sausage patties in it. Just good home cooking without the frills.

Great breakfast place. We stopped on our way out of town and it was perfect. Get there early - it fills up fast!

Had an excellent choice for seven different people. Everybody ordered something different and everybody enjoyed all of it. Service was excellent. It seemed to be a family oriented business. It didn't hurt that the price was very reasonable also!

Last Saturday morning our small family group of 7 descended on Ted's for breakfast! We had a varied number of plates but each of us seemed delighted at our preferred plates. We had French Toast, pancakes, eggs (over easy and scrambled), bacon, sausage, ham, potatoes, These potatoes were scrambled with sautéeed onions and tomatoes and simply scrumptious! Some of us...
