Had a great breakfast with terrific service. Felt like a local place (been there for a few decades) and very comfortable. Would see this as the go to breakfast place for me. Relaxed, easy, quiet, adult.

Great food, reasonable pricing. Great place for lunch or breakfast. Nothing fancy, just good food. Comfort food style dining.

We loved eating breakfast at Ted's. It's basically a diner with comfort food for breakfast (didn't eat there for lunch). Service was prompt and very friendly with coffee and water checked on and filled repeatedly. The cinnamon rolls were great. Among the group we had the usual bacon/eggs/omelets/pancakes/French toast and everyone was pleased enough to want to return for breakfast a second day. The place looks crowded but shares a parking lot with the boat ramp and you can park in the Parrot Eyes restaurant next door. The place feels like your hometown diner and the staff made us feel like we were locals. I'll definitely go back for breakfast next time we're in South Padre.

Ted's has been an Island staple for years. It is not fancy but it is just a good, hearty, affordable breakfast. I love the pecan pancakes but be warned that they are huge! Many locals eat here and you get plenty of food for not much cash! Stop by Ted's for breakfast and then swing by Sea Turtle, Inc. just up the street and visit the rehabbing sea turtles! Makes for a fun morning before hitting the beach.

We found Ted’s the first day of our vacation. We ate breakfast there every day. Ted’s is not fancy just good food and a good price. I loved their pancakes. Our waitress was fantastic; she has worked there for 18 years. I’m sorry I don’t remember her name, maybe Olivia.
