I love going here & just ordering their all you can eat tortilla, chips, queso & salsa. Their main menu items are big portions & reasonably priced. If you order a main menu item, you get chips, tortillas, queso, salsa & sopaipilla for free. Great to go with a family or friends! They have a superstar bar area too with... More

Always love the friendly atmosphere and food. Especially love the hot sauces and the hot pickled trio of onions, peppers & carrots. First tried Ted's in OKC and was glad they put one in Broken Arrow.

Original Ted's in OKC was great...always trying new things. The hotter hot-sauce with chunks of avocado was excellent. My past two trips to the Ted's in BA haven't been disappointing, but suffice to say only average. Staff was friendly enough, I suppose...though they seemed to be going through the motions. Food quantity was, as always, plentiful. But, it seems more... More

It's certainly concerning to know you left feeling this way, Jeffrey. We have never changed our ingredients in any of our meals. We still use the freshest highest quality ingredients as we always have. We still make everything in house multiple times daily with the exclusion of corn tortillas. We do hope that you will join us again soon so... More

Always friendly staff, food is always great and the portions are great! Love the complimentary tortillas and veggie mix and quest and salsa (yes I said complimentary) and also the complimentary sopapillas at the end of your meal. I always have to take left over home which is great and they heat up well. My favorite is the Escondido especial.

Enjoyed the fun atmosphere, homemade tortillas, this place was fun, great service and good food, good drinks, much recommended by locals. I have made a many treks trying to find great Mexican around the area - have yet to find great, Mexican comfort food, but for typical Mexican fare this came closest to what we wanted in dining.
