I'd heard about Ted's for years but had never been. It's a great choice! To start, they bring salsa, queso, chips & tortillas - for no charge if you order an entree. We had the fajitas, tacos & a chimichanga. All were great. They also came with a choice of 2 sides. There were plenty of leftovers for another meal... More

During a business lunch they spilled a pitcher of soda on us. Didn't seem to care and offered no help nor towels until we tracked down the manager. Next business trip they dropped a tray of salsa that go on us. They seemed to care a little bit, but I'm no longer a fan. Go to Alfredo's instead.

A great Mexican restaurant! The service is the best around and the food is great and very consistent. It is a little pricey but worth it. Their Habanero salsa is amazing, but it is VERY hot not for a novice! On weekends there will be a wait but it too is worth it!

Wow, their food is really great. We like the chips. Their service is compared to none. And my wife likes the cheese dip. I couldn't really pick one visit. Every time we have a visitor from out of town, we take them to Teds.

Wow! Just wow! We had to wait before they opened and quickly noticed the parking lot start to fill up and they weren't even open yet! The complimentary tortillas are most likely the best we have ever had. The wait staff was phenomenal! This isn't a place where you get 1 person to wait on you. Everyone covers tables and... More

Love this place! Homemade flour tortillas and cheese sauce. They are better than donuts! No one is getting skinny eating here!

A friend recommended this place and it was great!! We had never heard of them before so we had no clue that they offer complementary chips and queso as well as a desert at the end of your meal. Our waiter was a little odd but he New his stuff and the food was right out. Highly recommend this place!
