REVIEWS OF Ted's Cafe Escondido IN Oklahoma

Sgt Okie

Ted's is my "GO TO" for great food. They can be a little busy at times and you may have to wait, especially if you have a large group, but the staff will do their best. I have never had a bad experience at Ted's....david wayne howard

Frank Colwell

Wow! Everything was great! The food, the service, everything! Come to OKC just for Ted's!

Lisa Reich

Always good. Best set up for Mexican food. Noise levels can get loud or would otherwise be 5 stars. Try the Atomic Salsa if you like hot. If you've never had one you must have their fried stuffed avocado. Homemade style tortillas. Complimentary Sopapillas to end your meal. Always great frozen margaritas. My favorite is the Sangria Swirl.

John Blue

Man I love Ted's. It's a stellar place to eat at. Even tho the meals are great, I won't lie, I go there to binge on atomic salsa and chips. One of the very few places in the metro who makes their own chips fresh to serve. My only complaint are those darn surveys they give you. Service is awesome. The Menu is awesome. Please stop giving people a survey to fill out.

David Koehn

Great place to eat! Will come back! Very great service!

ronnie kessler

Always great food and great service.

Timothy Morris

Great food and service. Decent prices. I have never had anything other than good things to say about this restaurant. Still one of my favorite places after all these years.

Dana Denwalt

Love Ted's. The food is the best I have ever had. The staff is great.

Stephanie Berryman

We love Ted's for all of the extras that come with your meal for sure. But what really sets them apart is the service. We have never had a bad wait staff when we are there. The Monterey Chicken with substituted grilled veggies as the side is hands down the best thing on the menu. I love that I can get a healthier option when my family and friends wants Mexican food. It is also wallet friendly when feeding a big family or group.

Ashley Harkins

Our server Tanya was great! She was very accommodating and friendly. Everyone that works here is honestly great too. Always get the best food and best service. Favorite restaurant, easily.

Riva Snell

This is an awesome place to eat, family friendly with good service so great with groups or children! I love their tortillas!!!

Liv Adria

Never tried this location ...met my mom here..did not disappoint ..excellent service ... Had a neighborhood community feel really enjoyed it,

Cheyenne Reynolds

The food was good, however we did find a piece of kitchen staff glove in our queso. It also smelled like back up sewage but staff acked like she couldn't smell it. The bathroom was awful and unkept.

James Enslow

The food there is outstanding service is very good and they have a lot of things that you normally don't see on the menu that are on the side what's a good place to eat

Matt with Hat

All of their food is amazing! Truly a wonderful place. The staff were nice and were excellent about refills.

Arthur Tucker

Great food, great service. Everyone loves it so there is always a little bit of a wait and very limited parking. Had to park across the street in a strip mall parking lot but the food is more than worth it.

Darlena Macejewski

Yum! Love this place, there's one in Edmond too. Food is consistently good! Our service was great too.

Misti Wriston

Wait staff and manager were wonderful, as was the food!

Miles Hale

I worked at this restaurant for about a month and a half. First and foremost the place has bugs and water dripping out of the roof in the kitchen so God knows what extra ingredients you'll receive on your taco salad. management is very unprofessional and could care less about the guest experience. The place has decent food its just not ran very efficiently. I actually saw a server drop a customers dessert on the floor and pick it up and continue to put it on the plate as if noting happened. All i'm trying to say is be very careful choosing to eat at this specific Teds location. Check your food to make sure there are no bugs or anything else else to cause sickness.

Judge Radar

Best casual Mexican restaurant in OKC. Generous portions, full plates.

Kesha Rose

It was cool for a mexican restaurant. Good service, good drinks, ok food. I'd go back.

Teresa Rodgers

I have been eating here since the place opened, and it has always been really delicious food. I ate here last week, and I was very disappointed. My chips were cold and so was the queso dip. When I received my food, it too was cold after 5 minutes because the of the fans blowing on it. Not only that, my chicken enchiladas were mediocre. I was very disappointed, but the service was good.

Virginia Hamilton

Food and service were excellent

John Zobisch

The place was off the hook good. The steak fajitas were to die for. Fresh queso dip and salsa delicious. Highly recommend!

Roy Mills

Diana was our server and she was fantastic, very speedy, and had tons of smiles and enjoyment to share with us. The chips and the three sauces and the queso dip was the bomb. The perfect margarita was fantastic especially with the patron and the Grand Marnier. our dinner entree started with wonderfully christakos before the main plate came. Giving us time to enjoy the tacos instead of overfilling the table with food. The chili relleno stuffed with chicken and cheese was superb.the Escondido especial was also fantastic with four different servings of tamale enchilada and taco with rice and beans

Dustin Kyle Thompson

Everything a okie could ask for in a tex- Mex cantina. Great food, employees were on point and friendly. Environment was good. Love the atomic salsa.

Chelsea Ferris

Always good Americanized Mexican food ask for the avocado enchiladas. But they are usually pretty busy. Weekends it's smart to call ahead if in a hurry or bigger group.

John Watkins

Delicious chicken fajitas. Great service. I will return

Robert Wright

Good food super long wait. Prices are kind of high in comparison to other restaurants of the same category and quality

Wade Gammon

Great service and food as usual

Heather Vaughan

We had a fantastic lunch at Teds. As first timers, we tried shrimp fajitas and Mexican tacos, both chicken and steak. Everything was fresh and flavorful. Service was friendly and fast. Unfortunately, we are passing thru from Virginia otherwise we would be back often.

Teresa Rankin

Oh my gosh, highly recommend! The food was great and the service was amazing! I really needed good Mexican food coming from Oregon!

Cecilia M

I’m new plant based whole food diet and they were able to make accommodations for me.

Marilyn Miller

The best place to eat


Not bad but not great. Nice restaurant.

Billy Herring

Really enjoy the food at Ted's . The service is very good. The problem is just getting in the door which means the food is so great everyone what's it, but it is worth it.

Channel Three

They're Ted's, they're awesome... but they're cutting back on quantity. I have a recommendation: offer a half order for 75% of the price. It's a win/win for you and your customers.

Renato Menezes

This was one of (if not the best) Mexican food I ever had. Everything I ordered surpassed expectations and had an amazing quality: The tortillas, the quesadillas, the refried beans, the queso, the cheese, the garlic infused mashed potatoes, the guacamole, etc., everything was absolutely delicious. The dough of the tortilla and quesadillas is extremely soft and sets this place apart from many other Mexican restaurants. There were three varieties of Três Leches Cakes which is never seen in other restaurants. The chocolate one I tried was absolutely delicious.

Don McClintock

Ding Ding Ding - hits on every plate and great tortillas and queso and salsa!

Sarah Pertuit

We arrived and were told there would be a 20-30 minute wait and debated on whether we wanted to stay. I am so glad we waited, because it was well worth it! Once we were seated service was prompt, plus our server Antonio was very friendly without being overbearing. Our food arrived much quicker than we expected, and it was still steaming hot. The portions are huge, and the price was excellent! I would expect food this good with portions this big to cost a lot more. I had to hold myself back to save room for dessert and I am SO glad I did. The tres leches was so good I could have three plates all to myself. We were incredibly satisfied and pleasantly surprised by how great the restaurant was. It's not flashy, and not immediately obvious from the street, but do not let that fool you! This is an excellent restaurant that I will happily return to any time I come back to OKC.

Leeann Miller

The food is awesome. We need a Ted's in Enid Oklahoma. All our Mexican food here is bad

D Callison

We were charged a surcharge extra because we are Vegans. They said they do make vegan chimichogas. When the waitress brought the tab she said she didn't know and to ask the manager. So we ask and he told us that yes they do make vegan food but since it is not a menu item there would be a surcharge. We ask why were we not told about the charge before the tab came? The manager said it's just something they do. We went to this same Mexican restaurant on my birthday night and we told them that it was my Birthday. No one sang or anything special. We are Sr citizens. We saw the wait staff sing for at least two guests while we were there. I am not happy with this Ted's. The Ted's on N Meridian about Memorial gave us excellent service and no extra costs. We were treated special. It's the same chain, but different locations. This one gets 1 star in my book.

Faith Daniel

It was good, very good even. But in a sea of Mexican food I feel like they should do something that sets them apart from all the others! If you are near it absolutely stop in because it's worth it!

Robert Jensen

Great food, friendly courteous staff. Grat orices.

Clint Bosley

Always great service and great food. Queso could be a little bit more thick

Debbie Foster

One of our all time favorites, great food but hard to get a seat at times. We usually go on the weekend afternoons when the crowds are light. The chips and salsa are some of the best I've ever had!

Doug Riddles

Food is average for Mexican food and not special at all. The plates are pricey because of the free chips and queso. The best part about Ted's are the fresh tortillas.

lori rothwell

Rebecca, and myself had a wonderful lunch Friday after work, our server, a handsome young man, was 5

Claudia Disney

Food is meh, honestly the setup is the best part that probably keeps people coming back.

Dena Carolina

Food was okay waiter was really bad.

Sharon Wynn

Noel is the best.wait staff ever.. Badest Dos Equis dressesd.Food great

Angela DeMauro

I was a little let down. The food came out warm but not hot. The fajitas you could touch the pan wasn't sizzling and the meat was just kind of warm. Our tea tasted old. We had to ask for refills of water. The chips and cheese did come out hot. The servers change shift in the middle of us so maybe that's what it was. But I was very disappointed we were there to celebrate three birthdays we'd all been looking forward to trying Ted's to me location for us.


Antonio served me and was great! Food was delivered shockingly fast and was tasty! Good service

Levi Arnold

Amazing food. Got to try the chimi with shredded beef -- yum! Would be even better if there was one in stillwater. ;)

Eric Beeson

One of the must rat at Mexican food restaurants

Drew Harris

Still the same amazing food and staff after 20 years. From my childhood until early adulthood this has been my favorite restaurant in Oklahoma

chris kirk

Food tasted good, but for the prices it better, too bad the hostess is the only person who cares about the customers. Walked on got menu sat down with friend and family to wait to have order taken, was a bit out the way so went and checked with hostess and qatched her for the second time activate her mic and let the other employees know we are waiting and we waited inside in front of kitchen this time. After another 10 minutes of waiting the hostess came over and asked of our order had been taken and it had not and she physically went to the back this time to inform them of the error. So in the end we got our food just as the family that walked in behind us with no reservation was leaving after they were sat with no reservation and order taken they got to eat while my friend, wife, 5 year old child and i waited to get a to go order. This place has the same poor customer service it always has except for when it first opened. Not fine dining. Gabriella's if you want a guaranteed good experience. There are no nice mexican joints seeing as in two days i have had 4 mexican restaurants from grand junction Colorado to oklahoma city oklahoma not give good customer service through either the wait staff or the kitchen except El Tapatio. All we wanted was to place a togo order and it took nearly an hour to place the order watching multiple families be seated with reservation (which i totally understand) and multiple families with no reservation be seated order eat and pay before we got to order. That is just inexcusable.

Casey Hunter

Oliver was our waiter and exceeded our expectation. He was friendly, timely and awesome. Thank you for the great experience

Jeanna Buchanan

Great food. Great service. Only 10 min wait.

Nadine Jacobs

This place does not serve homemade food. The enchiladas tasted store bought, they were on a store bought tortillas. Taco meat old. New experience.

Justin Tanner

Food was good! Wait staff couldn't decide who was going to help us, so that was annoying, had to constantly ask who was going to give us the check, to go drinks, as well as a to go box. Tough to give anymore stars especially when you see wait staff just standing around talking

Paul Grimes

Always solid service and great fajitas! Be sure to try the non-standard salsas....

Debbie Stone

Love the food! Service is great!

David Muench

Great restaurant for Mexican food. Our server Alli was very cordial and efficient. The food was tasty and well-seasoned. Great experience!

Clifford Darity

First time there I thought the food was good but very salty

Jodi Schneider

Amazing food! Loved the service!

None Ya

Preferred the one down south off 240, the facility is better. But the food was good. Almost too fast. Still eat appetizer when food came out. Table was too small for just what we had with all those plates.

Natasha Terrell

Food was good and customer service was great!

Bill Clevenger

Love the food. HATE THE TECHNOLOGY. I resent needing to provide my email to get a receipt. I hate the technology.

Dillon Harkrider

I grew up on Ted’s. The food here is so amazing, the atmosphere is top-notch. I couldn’t say a bad thing about this place if I tried! The BEST Mexican food in Oklahoma, by a long shot. A genuine classic.

Lela Eberly

Love this restaurant. We always have a great meal when we eat here. Love that you get all the free cheese and salsa dips.

Cheryl ONeill

Came here a few years ago with my best friend and her husband who were visiting from Missouri. We told them this is best place to go for Mexican food. We came back tonight because she liked it so much and it was all great.

Mindy Campbell

Chicken enchiladas with sour cream sauce are AMAZING!! Wonderful and very attentive waitstaff and always very clean!!

Logan Moore

I love eating at this location, I come here quite often as it is close to my house and I love the fresh Tex-Mex food! Some of the best tortillas I have ever had hands down, and the service is always amazing! Don’t know how you guys do it but the servers here are always so wonderful and on top of their game! Recently I had Madie as my server, and she was an absolute pleasure! She made my day better with her smile and genuinely asking how I am doing, she made sure everything came out how I ordered and to my liking.. what can I say other than keep up the amazing training and good work Teds! I’ll be back of course!

Sharon Gensler

The food is good but it always seems too hectic and rushed along with the tables squeezed up so tight together. It's just not a place for a relaxing meal.

Tammy Burkhart

Ted's is the best. Love the food

Sarah Heck

I've never been able to find a main course entree I like at Ted's. But they get 2 stars just for the chips, queso, salsa and tortillas! I always feel rushed, this location is too crowded, they try to squeeze too many tables in a tight space which makes it awkward, it feels like you're having dinner with the table of strangers next to you. Normally I wouldn't complain about how fast the food is served but our food was there in less than 5 minutes which obviously means nothing is cooked fresh. My husband ordered the pork street tacos and the pork looked absolutely disgusting. It was dry and looked like dog food. I had a simple ground beef taco that wasn't even warm, and mainly stuffed with lettuce. Also, they recently started charging extra for "premium sides" like the corn and potatoes. Although, the servers don't mention this when they ask what sides you want! Anyways, overall disappointed yet again and don't plan to return.

Rob Zaitona

Man it pains me to give this place such a low rating because the food is pretty good just the way they run the place is off. I ordered 2 taco entrees 1 came with guacamole 1 didn't so they charged me $4 for guacamole which is fine. After waiting 50 minutes for my take out order I saw tables walk in eat and walk out while I was waiting. I get home to try and enjoy our dinner and the bag only had the tacos in them without anything but some extra tortillas. Even the onions I asked for on the side weren't there so for dinner tonight we are eating steak, pork, and tortillas for dinner with nothing else.

Misty Gray

Good was delicious. Staff was very friendly and attentive.

A. Shap

Great place for a birthday lunch

Tyler Todd

Pretty solid Tex-Mex, however I got the Double Combo Fajitas with steak and chicken and the portion was super small. My wife and I split it and I only got 4 and a half pieces of steak. Definitely not worth the $30 plus price tag.

Tausha Maze

Excellent food, service and atmosphere! If you prefer quiet, not the place during busy times. Otherwise, don't miss out on this chow- delicious!!

Jeremy Zumwalt

OK? It is not that the place was poor, mind you, but it also was not the place the reputation purports it to be. I have had a lot of Mexican in a lot of places, and the only thing that really stood out about this one was the reputation. Sure, you get free cheese sauce with your chips, and tortillas as well. I am not sure the point if the tortillas before the meal and the cheese sauce was thinking and runny. Nothing close to exceptional. The salsa was good, inoffensive and simple. The follow on hot salsa was warm, but there was not a lot going on from a flavor perspective. The pork carnitas served with my meal was tender and most, but lacking in flavor. No hints of lime and cumin, heck, not even much in the way of salt. Bottom line, the place is not bad, but it also presented nothing I would go out of my for and left me with no reason to recommend it over any other place.

Mickey Thompson

One of OKC's stalwarts for Tex Mex. Best flour tortillas in town. Great service.

John Chandler

Most the excellent Mexican food in OKC


I really appreciated Pedro, the manager, going out of his way to answer my questions regarding a food allergy. He was very caring and helpful.

Marty Conner

Great food. Very friendly.

Mindy Brown

Always a great choice. If there is a wait is definitely worth it! The free chips and queso are delicious!!

Erin Gagnon

Alli was my server and she was very attentive and friendly. Food was fast and delicious as always!

Stephen Reading

Amazing service. Amazing food. Some of the best food i have had here in OKC!

adrian mcclure

The best sopapillas ever so soft and easy to cut best ever and there tortilla are so good there atomic sauce so good

Josh Noel

I love Mexican food and Ted's is the go to place for it. I've tried their enchiladas and nachos the most and both are superb. I haven't had any issues in my many visits and I'd highly recommend to anybody that they should try Ted's.

Clay Stangle

Good food and great service. Drinks were kept full and the server was very nice. Food was excellent and they have lots of free stuff even for a Mexican restaurant.

Amber Nicole

My favorite restaurant. This day I was not happy to find out that something I've been getting free for years costs 3.99. Smh

Brenton Abernathy

One of the best texmex places in okc, highly recommend going here at least once. Fresh homemade flour tortillas good queso.


The set up (free chips, queso, and salsa) is the best. My favorite dish is the pollo ranchero or the enchilada dinner. You also get a complimentary sophipilla.

John Voss

Joined a group for a meal in the banquet hall. We were told we would have all you can eat fajitas (fyi $23 a head - drinks included). Fajitas tasted like they were microwaved, no caramelization on the vegetables at all, no tortillas either. How can you have fajitas without tortillas? Seriously. And as for the drinks initially all we were offered was water and and unsweet tea, no lemons. An hour after things got started we finally got tortillas. And eventually sweet tea showed up. Don't bother with the banquet hall.

Gregg Boonstra

Very good food, okay service

David Manriquez

It was delicious, big portions, our server was fantastic, price is fine. Highly recommend

Joe Dickerson

Ted’s Escondido used to be the go to place now they have gotten so overpriced it’s not worth the trip but the food is still good

Nathan Hayes

Have had an amazing experience at Ted's! The staff are wonderful and friendly! We had the pleasure of Adriana as our waitress! She is a trainer and for good reason! She was spectacular and made sure we always had fresh Tortillas and chips and salsa/cheese sauce! We also had the pleasure of Ryan being our waitress the next time we went in! She is a manager but was willing to take on the task to serve us due to our server being out. She was very friendly, knowledgable, and always kept up with whatever we asked for! She even refilled drinks and tortillas or chips and salsa at the perfect times! As we were boxing up our meals that we couldn't finish as they serve generous portions, she came back out to the table with 2 small boxes and told us they were the complimentary FRESH MADE Sopapillas!! We also got a "Fresh Setup" while we were boxing up our meals!! Wowza!! Definitely a place that you should check out!! You will not be disappointed and definitely will not be leaving hungry, or empty handed for that matter!!

Rhonda Bishop

This place is awesome. Fantastic food and good service!!!

David Benham

I have gone to this location twice in the past month on Mondays, mid afternoon, and I agree on some of the other reviews that the location is kind of odd and slightly cramped, and I could see how during busy hours that would greatly magnify that issue. To me it seems like the building was built for a smaller restaurant originally. Parking is borderline horrendous. Frankly I would consider a move or possibly adding a location off of nw expressway might, as quite a few drive to Ted’s. That said, the food was great, service phenomenal, and inside was clean and nice.

Mary Smith

Ted's Food what's delicious enjoy yourself the waiter what's very gracious the drinks awesome whenever you have time stop by you won't regret it

Pete Traylor

Quick service, good food and excellent set up.

Tammy Roy

The food was delicious and lunch specials were a reasonable price. Servers were definitely professional and helpful. Restaurant was mostly clean especially for being a very busy time of day. I highly recommend them if you want delicious Tex Mex in a timely manner!

Sadee Carney

Beyond fast customer service. We sat down and within a minute we had already gotten or drink orders and chips and fresh tortillas. I really enjoyed the great service. Maybe I just ordered the wrong dish but it wasn't "the best" where I would remember it by. But I am pleased beyond belief with the great service!

Aftin Wallace

Did not taste like the money we paid for it yuck

John Featherstone

Very good food love it.. a double yum.

Bert Rutledge

Ted's has great mexican food ,friendly service. A lot of people drive from Stillwater to Edmond just to eat there. We have also eaten at Ted's in Tulsa and Norman. Still waiting for them to come to Stillwater.

Mandy H

Good was delicious. Staff was friendly. Loved the free salsa, queso, homemade flour tortillas, and soppapillas. Restaurant was clean and no wait for a table. Will be back if we're in the area.

Linda Bishop

This is the 1st teds b4 they started expanding.the tortillas alone should b worth the trip...there pretty good on there food. Def worth a try.

Troy Bessinger

It's just not the same rage it used to be. Tortillas, setup, and etc are still awesome but the food selection is bland and uninspired. Just a little too expensive. But what isn't in this time of tariffs?


Ted's is a nice classic Mexican restaurant. The catering is also really good.

payton bullington

I dont have words for how much I love it

amberlee ss

Food is amazing as always the service not so muh

Joe Thomas

They really go all out on the complimentary stuff here. It's all great. The entrees are not the highlight, but they are good, too!

Angie Huckabee

Delicious homemade flour tortillas! Great tex-mex food. Try the burritos, you won't be disappointed.

eric holcomb

Ted's is always good. Fast fresh food great service!


I only give two stars not because of the food or the service, because that is ON POINT. What I loathe is their archaic overhead speaker paging system. Every 3.2 seconds there is a LOUD announcement for a table opening up. Its obnoxious. You cant hear your friends talk because it is blasting in decibels! I think I have hearing loss. A handheld pager is a small unit you hold that flashes when your table is ready. I recommend THEY INVEST IN THAT IMMEDIATELY. I will not go back to that location.

Don Morgan

Always great food and service! We always dine at Teds in Tulsa, however was in OKC and tried it. A+++++ Please consider coming to the Fort Smith, Arkansas area!

Shanti Norwood

Ted's never disappoints. First time at this location. Smaller and the parking is crazy if its busy. Very limited. Food was fresh,staff and atmosphere were great. Good food and a great atmosphere. Will definitely be returning to this location. Cant wait to try something new.

Jeremy Spotted Elk

Great food and better service. Place is always packed at lunch and dinner. Kinda tucked back in a corner.

Christy Coy

Where do I begin!!! We went the 4th of July. Our server was Joshua! Great personality, actually thought he was managment. The food was wonderful, drinks were delicious! We wish Joshua the best, we were so pleased w the food, and service we will be back.

Marc Burch

Good tex-mex made fresh. Been there many of times. Always a good choice.

laurel richardson

Wonderful food and flawless service!

John Toles

GREAT food very good service, at a decent price!

Justin Brown

Great Food! The queso and fresh tortillas are the best part. I could eat that as my meal when I come here. Service was good, and food came out in a timely manner.


Not my favorite tex mex, but good on occasion. The new restaurants have some very strange seating options, not the most comfortable. Like the old original locations and their seating better.

Brian Conway

I dont know what happened to Ted's. I usually come from out of state twice a year and have enjoyed going to Ted's for some great food. This time it was a horrible experience. It started off with dirty silverware, then a bug in the drink. The food wasn't any good to anyone in my party. Fajitas were cold, meat was overcooked and dry vegetables were undercooked and crunchy. The nachos has a weird taste. The chicken Monterey was dry with very little flavor. The whole experience was horrible, not the Ted's I have looked forward to coming to town to have. I have always given a 5 star in the past but sadly couldn't do it this time.

Megan Butenhoff

Food was decent. But our server, Jeana, made the night. She was attentive, kind and quick. Always had a smile.

Michelle Tipton

Wonderful food and atmosphere.

Mark inOKC

Service is always slow, but that's because it is always busy. And that's because of good food! I recommend that you eat here, but be ready for a wait.

Gordon Dabbs

We ate lunch here in transit to Dallas - our family of four, plus my daughter's boyfriend. It was lunchtime and the place was PACKED. I've been here a couple of other times and it usually has a line, so we weren't surprised by the 25 minute wait. The good... Amazing home made tortillas. And, they bring salsa, queso, relish and butter to enjoy with the fresh tortillas. You may need to ask - I don't know that they bring all of this automatically. There's a decent lunch menu with reasonable pricing. My son and I shared fajita chicken nachos. They were really good - the smoky charred chicken chunks were delicious. The food is very good but not great. There's not a ton of imagination when it comes to the menu or preparation of the food, but it's good. The bad... The restaurant is smallish and gets busy at meal times so you may have to wait. Parking around the restaurant is limited so we had to park across the street. All in all, Ted's is solid - there's a reason it's the favorite go-to for OKC Mexican food.

Richard Hudson

It was awesome, except when the waitress dropped our food order.

J Schuurman

The best Mexican food I ever had!!

Louis Leo

This place was getting high marks - hands over fist and was recommended for top Mexican at my hotel, so I gave it a try. It was SUPER busy - a good sign, but I was seated in a timely manner and the service was really good. The server confused my order a bit, but not so bad it mattered. The food is colorful and seems very authentic. The warm tortillas could be eaten on their own - fabulous. The only let down, despite how pretty the food looked, was the lack of Mexican seasoning. The seasoning was very dulled to the point where the nachos and taco, even the enchilada had a blurred common taste....fresh but not flavorful. I wanted cilantro, cumin and chilies or chili powder to really pop - it doesn't. The most flavorful items were the sides - rice and beans. They were excellent. You will enjoy your trip but don't be surprised if the flavors don't overwhelm.

Tom Anderson

Service is not like it once was. Food menu seems to have changed as well. Love the salsa and chips. Ordered double fajitas on a Sunday afternoon for 2 for $31.00. Did not want the rice and beans so substituted them for a salad for another $1.59 added. This is one of the more expensive venues in the metro for simple Mexican food in my view.

Brian C

I had the lunch special soft tacos. Shredded beef is slow cooked and piled high! Terrific flavor, terrific service. We had a great lunch right at noon on a weekday. The served us hot food fast, and it was all spectacular. Ask for the special salsa and fried jalapenos. Piled on those handmade tortillas...that's a hard bite to beat! This restaurant is in a very hectic part of OKC, so be prepared for the traffic. Inside it's quiet enough for napping babies. Its also a great place for company lunches.

Tiffanie Laughter

Consistently good food and service. I have never went to Teds and left unhappy, just super full. They will also send you home with a free set up (Chips, Salsa & Queso) when you purchase a meal if you ask. No complaints!

Melissa Imlach

Great food! I had never been to a Mexican restaurant that brought chips, salsa, queso, for each person and freshly made flour tortillas that were to die for. After dinner they brought us sopapias that were heavenly. Martin was our waiter and he was friendly and provided friendly service. I also noticed that her was helping the other staff and encouraging on his co-workers! It was all very impressive! I will go every time I am in the area!

Desirae Smith

Always great food and great service!

Frank McElmurry

The food was extremely excellent. And I have no words to explain how good . Our waiter was. He was a one of a kind and it was almost as if he knew what you was going to say before you said it and he just knew what you wanted and how you wanted it.

Jaque Voss

They catered my best friends anniversary party. And we were very disappointed in the quality of the food and the service. We had a chicken fajita bar. The dinner was at 4. They did not serve any tortillas until 5pm. And by then everyone had already gotten food. The chicken looked and tasted like it had been steamed and not grilled like usual. The drinks ran out constantly. It was poorly handled all the way around. I won't be using g them to cater for me ever. Especially when it cost $24/person

Fast service x great food. Atmosphere is amazing, small building but overall a great place. Definitely worth it!

Favorite location. I am doing low carb. I had the fajita salad with a side of avacado with the house dressing for the first time. Simply delicious! The chicken fajita enchiladas are amazing too.

I really like the chips, salsa and fresh tortillas. The food is Tex-Mex, so if you like that you will be fine. I have been to the location on May several times for work functions and the staff is always friendly and accommodating.

Food was good. Service also good. Place was crowded and could use a little updating.

The wait staff has always been as amazing as the food! Today I had a chicken fajita chimichanga with shredded cheese on top, along with the rice and beans. Delicious!!

Disclaimer: I had recieved a very positive recommendation for this restaurant so I had pretty high hopes. Food is good but I prefer the more hole-in-the-wall type of venues and this certainly was not that. Yes they serve tortillas and queso for free but there is no plate sharing and anyone who doesn't order an entree is automatically charged like $8 for the chips/tortillas and sauces. For the prices of the other entrees you could go somewhere less crowded and just order queso and tortillas with a more reasonably priced entree.

Its well worth the wait but if your brother lies and says its your birthday they'll make you wear a sombrero and they'll all sing


It's average but good atmosphere.

Not what they used to be. But they were nice enough to comp the meal. But I would rather of had a great meal, after all that is what I was looking for when we went there. Seems like expansion ruins all the once upon a time great mexican restaurants around Okc.

Food was delicious, great service...spent 15 minutes trying to park... but my meal made up for the small parking and small atmosphere.
