I really can't understand the draw. I agree with everyone on the fact they have GREAT homemade flour tortillas, but that is all that is ever said. If I plan on just eating flour tortillas all through the meal that would be great but I...More

I used to live by the original location a very long time ago and I ate there quite a bit. Now that they have a location on 1-40 I am starting to eat there again and it is so good. One of my favorites.

You always get a good meal at Teds. We eat here at least once a month. The food is consistent. Guacamole is always so good. It's my favorite Mexican Restaurant. I recommend it to everyone.

Not really Mexican food to me nor is it tex-mex. This place is clean enough but not very authentic. I guess I go to Mexico too much to call this Mexican food. Boring salsa and the chips not great. People have told me the taco...More

Ted's has the best queso, salsa, and chips compared to other local tex-mex restaurants. The tortillas are made from scratch in front of you as you wait for a table. The food is consistently good. The only downside can be the wait time. Management seems...More

It sounds like the service was wonderful, and we're so pleased. However, the food should always be a 10/10, so we're bummed you didn't experience the best dishes possible. That being said, flavor is the best! We aim for fresh and flavorful every time. Thanks...More
