We don't come here often, but we always look forward to it when we have a special occasion! It's super cold outside, but the dining area is nice and toasty. Homemade flour tortillas to start, good food, excellent service! Worth the short wait for sure!!

Several people told me how good this place was but it is not worth the wait. Horrible service and the food is just okay. Not a place I would recommend.

This is one of our favorite Mexican food restaurants here in Edmond. The food is consistently good and the margaritas are even better!! The tortillas are made in house as one can see upon entering the restaurant and you can even try them as you wait to be seated if you want. Be prepared for a wait as they are... More

Thanks, Marjorie! Glad you love our tortillas and our margaritas as much as we do! Good that you mentioned the wait. It's best to come for an early dinner or a late lunch to minimize wait times. Hope we can see you soon! Until next time, Ted's Management More

The fresh tortillas and cheese, chips and salsas are a HUGE hit! The portions are massive!!! Plan to split if you eat any tortillas and chips! Ugh. Maybe this is why I am always so full. Mexican reviews are a theme along with bottomless chips! The enchiladas & tacos are great as are the tamales and chile rellanos. The service... More

Food average, service good. Atmosphere too crowded, too loud, too much activity to carry on conversations.

It's always been busy when we try to eat there, so we aren't able to eat as often as we would like, but the food is always delicious and the service is friendly.

People rave about this place but to be honest I have had better Mexican . The best part though are their homemade tortillas. They a delicious. Their food is not awful by any means, just doesn't live up to the hype as one of the best.

It seems like no matter when you go to Ted's they are always busy!! You still get good food and great service. The items on the menu are a little pricey for the type of food. They should really look at adding on since the restaurant is quite cramped. Love the home made flour tortillas!

Teds is fantastic, the only problem with them is that there is usually a long wait during high peak times. However, in my opinion it is worth the wait. We have lots of Mexican restaurants near here and have tried them all, we always go back to Teds!!
