We went to Ted's Cafe Escondido with my wife's brother and family, while visiting them in Norman, OK last year. The chips were good, the salsa flavor-ful, but the cheese dip was to die for!!!

By the time dinner arrived, I was filled up on chips, salsa and cheeeeeese. The food, the atmosphere, Nd the service were all excellent. If you are visiting Norman, Oklahoma or living in the area, we highly recommend going to Ted's.

Enjoy!

Last year when we were dining here, a tornado warning was issued and the staff remained very professional while proceeding to herd us all into their walk in refrigerator. They kept a watch on the weather and kept us safe until the danger was gone, then escorted us back to our tables and continued the dinner service. I have to say, as we walked through the kitchen area, I was amazed at the cleanliness! The walk in was also very clean. I would never hesitate to eat here again!

They bring you so much stuff while you're waiting for you food. All of their quesos and salsas are really delicious. The waiter was on top of bringing us what we needed besides one item. You can also see some of the people in the back making homemade tortilla which I thought was pretty neat. Overall a great place to meet with friends.

They always have great service and food. They get you in as quickly as possible and keep the food coming. Their salsa isn't hot, but they do have an atomic salsa to add heat. They have home made fresh tortillas. Yummy!
