The atmosphere & staff are very friendly, but the facility is very dated, plain Jane. Don't be fooled by the looks, though. The food was good with great prices. The fresh fruit was fantastic and sweet! My husband got a tuna salad sandwich and just raved about it.

We keep passing by Ted’s Restaurant when we drive up and down the Island and we’ve never stopped — today we fixed that and we’re happy we did. There are always cars out front this breakfast & lunch spot so we knew there had to be something good about it and it turns out that basic good home cooking at... More

I'm not sure why this restaurant was rated so highly-most likely it's because of the friendliness of the staff. We found the food to be average at best (pecan pancakes sound better than they taste & the huevos rancheros were just...meh), the coffee was good and plentiful & the price was commensurate with the quality & quantity of the food....

Four of us went for breakfast based in reviews. Expected much more. None of the items we ordered were above average in flavor. Service was casual, at best. Two waiters asked us if we wanted coffee but still had to ask for coffee. Not on our list for a return.

This is a small sandwich place outside of the main part of South Padre Island. I had the grilled chicken sandwich with avocado and mozzarella cheese. It was excellent. service was quick and friendly and very efficient. We got there at about 10 minutes before closing time and they graciously let us in and cooked our lunches. Nothing fancy but...

My wife and I decided to try this place for breakfast after reading the reviews. We both had the "islander", mine with sausage and Em's with crispy bacon. The meal arrived in good time and was exactly as ordered with the eggs over easy. With coffee and the breakfast our bill was under $17.00. The restaurant is furnished in a... More

For more than 30 years I have eaten breakfast at Teds. The migas and fajitas are award winning. My favorite is huevos rancheros with homemade salsa. For me they make it with egg whites. The American breakfasts are great too and there are lunch specials everyday. The salads are something special. Hurry breakfast ends at 2 pm.

Awesome place for breakfast! Their french toast is great, any item you might want for breakfast Ted's has it. Great service that looks like where the locals go. Casual beach attire some people wearing PJ bottoms, whatever, the food is good.

Thank tommyg1111
