Original Ted's in OKC was great...always trying new things. The hotter hot-sauce with chunks of avocado was excellent. My past two trips to the Ted's in BA haven't been disappointing, but suffice to say only average. Staff was friendly enough, I suppose...though they seemed to...More

Probably some of the best service we have ever experienced. We had to wait 30 minutes becuase they were so busy but it was definitely worth the wait. Bar is next to the waiting area so you can grab a drink while you are waiting.

We have eaten at several Ted's and the food is consistently good. We had a group of 9 and our server was excellent. He really took good care of us and made several recommendations that were very well received. Definitely would return.
