Excellent service and complimentary tortillas and fillings and great chips and salsa. Generous servings and excellent quality food. Save room for a free sopapia (sp) at the end.

Best chips and salsa in town. But, If you like your salsa Hotter they will bring you some with big chucks of avacados in it. You can't beat the homemade flour tortillas made as you watch, or the complimentary cheese sauce and sopapillas!

We purchase chips, dip, burritos and tacos to go. Their customer service is great. The food was bland and really just ok. For the four of us we spent 30 dollars and that seemed expensive for just ok.

If you want truly authentic Mexican food, you must eat at Ted's. They use shredded, not ground beef, and that does make a HUGE difference in taste and flavor. I love their chicken/spinach quesadillas - my favorite. Our plates are always full to their rims, the staff always friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Ted's.

We love to eat at Ted's Cafe Escondido. We always eat there after the Route66Marathon. The Mexican flag enchiladas are awesome. You won't leave this place hungry.

My favorite Mexican restaurant ever! No matter what location we visit, the service and food is always fantastic! It's a little higher than other local Mexican restaurants, but definitely worth it!

Great food - very large portions, always fresh and hot and the price is in line with other Tex-Mex Restaurant's. Service is excellent, quick and they are good about coming back and ensuring you have everything you need, getting you refills on drinks. Sometimes they are very busy because they are so popular but it is well worth the wait... More

Ted's never fails to impress! Whenever family comes in from out of town, I always take them here. Great menu, large servings, and every meal ends with a delicious warm sopapilla. Be sure to order relish and tortillas!
