If you are looking for cloth napkins and impeccable service this is not the place for you! If you are looking for reasonably priced Mexican food this is your place! Do not miss the bean or guacamole cups made with fresh masa. I have eaten at Teka for over 40 years. They also have Big Red on tap. What is not to love?!

Teka2 (the new location, in the shopping center at Rittiman Road and Harry Wurzbach) is an absolutely excellent addition to the Fort Sam neighborhood! It's much more trendy than the original location, but the food is good as ever, and very reasonably priced. (Where else can you get two made-to-order breakfast tacos and a full size drink for under $3?!) The staff is friendly and efficient and this location is always spotless-- there's even a patio/ meeting room available for parties and groups. Highly recommended!

We visited the Teka Molino #2 on Rittiman Road. We loved the bean cups, the guacamole cups, carne guisado taco and the best green chicken enchilada!! You can not get this quality of food at reasonable prices anywhere else. The service is quick and friendly. The two hot sauces are excellent .
We were here for breakfast and could order anything from the menu. What a bonus!

Showed up at 2:15 in the afternoon after the lunch rush on a Saturday and we ordered 2 combos (Nona's plate and the puffy tacos). Now this is important: it's an order at the counter, pick up your own food no-frills supposedly quick serve place. The reality: no concept of food service. It took over 30 minutes to get our food with a terrible explanation for the wait: one dish took longer than the other. The problem? Clearly they started both dishes at the same time so that when we got our order one was good and the puffy tacos were a soggy mess. When I asked, they said it would be another 10 minutes to make another order because they were working on other orders now. Are you freaking kidding me???? So we ate soggy puffy tacos and will almost definitely go back even though the food (other than the puffy taco shells) was rather excellent, eapecially for its price.

Please learn about food prep timing techniques and customer service. Thanks.

Teak is a hole in the wall gem! Great puffy tacos, guacamole cups, and bean rolls. Been going for years with the family. Really good food and family run. Is a little high for SA tex mex but its worth it. Only draw back, no waitress. You still can't beat it!
