I went here on Sunday, November 12th 2017. This was my first time visiting Oklahoma. Usually when you go to a Mexican restaurant you are given chips and salsa but here they bring chips, salsa (mild or hot- your choice) as well as queso cheese...More

Food still good, but forced to use take out and it is horrible in noise & too open. Feels like eating in train station. Too loud/no effort in the building to reduce noise. They really need a take out window !!!More

Ted's is a long time OKC eatery, many choice of Mexican dishes to choose from, great frozen Sangria at a good price. Complimentary chips, salsa and queso, plus they have several types of salsa to choose from, mild to HOT.

The freebies are all over. Free ramekins of "cheese" sauce and salsa and bowls of chips. The food is really low grade. Frozen veggies, lots of deep frying. Fresh tortillas is true. Free "dessert" too. You'll put on ten pounds - all sugar and fat...More

The food was delicious. Servers were very friendly. Tortillas were fresh! (They make them on site behind a glass window which is pretty neat to watch)

This is a great spot for tex-mex. I love their chili rellenos, especially with the spicy atomic salsa (and yes, it is CRAZY HOT but delicious!). Very fast and friendly service.

I have not used their catering services but I believe it is based on the meal selection and the number of persons. I would call the manager and ask to confirm.
