try the Ted's skillet or one of their burritos...better have someone to share with though because the portions are generally huge.

Whilst staying with friends near Laguna Beach, we were taken to Ted's Place for dinner on one occasion and breakfast a few days later. We were very impressed by the cleanliness of the diner and the quality of the food we chose. The service is friendly and fast. The range of foods is wide and interesting and all freshly cooked. The value is excellent. They have an outside patio seating area as well as indoor seating, which is a nice option. The sports TVs, high in the corners of the diner, are easily viewable but not intrusive for non-sports fans (sound off, which is good). They offer free refills for beverages and have daily specials on the menu as well as their regular menu. Example breakfast special is the “Fill me up” special with 2 eggs, 4 triangles of French toast, 2 bacon or sausage and home made hashbrowns, all freshly cooked to order for $6.59, example dinner, fish & chips with 2 large pieces of freshly cooked fish and French fries for $7.49 or 3 fish for $8.89, or 1lb monster cheeseburger served with large French fries or salad and a soda for $9.99. You just can’t beat the quality, service, and price. A great affordable find, we shall be back for sure.

Consistent diner in Laguna Niguel...huge servings. Most plates are large enough to share or take home for left overs. I love they have a drive-thru (I call in advance). The food is fresh and the menu has EVERYTHING from breakfast, lunch, and dinner with almost anything you'd want. Have had several different meals here (great fries, bbq beef sandwich, grilled cheese, salmon salad) all good-- seen a lot of giant breakfast burritos being enjoyed. It's always nice to chat with Ted who is usually around and available if you have any problems at all.

This is a great diner to visit except. I would recommend getting there early if you go on a weekend. They are always packed. They give a lot of food for what they charge and it is always delicious! They also have a drive through if you are in a hurry!

Ted's is a diner. Nothing fancy. It's food. Nothing more - nothing less, and one doesn't go for ambiance. You'd never take a date there, for example. It's just food. And because it's 'just food' it has always been lower priced.
You line up at a counter and place your order - they hand you a glass which you fill at the soda machine yourself, and they give you a number card which you place on a table. Someone brings the food. That's about it. It's food!
I was stunned last night to see that they have shortened the menu and raised the prices over 20% - Ted's is no longer a great deal, but is about the same price as everywhere else.

I am so disappointed.
