The service was wonderful. As usual the chips and salsa and cheese sauce were excellent. I ordered a chicken enchilada and a pork street taco. SO GOOD!

Took out kids and grandkids to dinner here. As usual the food was beyond delicious and the staff is exceptional. Chips and salsa are best. Fajitas are wonderful. We always eat here when visiting our kids and grandkids. Our favorite place by far.

We love this place. Great food and service. There are several around OKC and we have ate at all of them. They are all good with consistent food quality and service. Flour tortillas are prepared on site. Love the lighter tortilla chips. Food is always fresh and hot. Service is fast and attentive. Highly recommend and Ted's in OKC.

Nice quick service. Easy to be seated on a busy day. Quick attention from staff. For "Tex-Mex" food it is one of the best. Fresh flour tortillas are great. The corn tortillas are not as good but they are note made at the restaurant. Flavor is good for most of the dishes.

I won't say that Ted's is the very, very best Mexican food I have ever had, but I do say that it is consistently delicious, hot, fresh and they get it to your table incredibly fast. I will say that their service is among the very best I have experienced. They are (again) fast, friendly and you would be hard... More
