I and my family were on a trip to Colorado. We stayed at a motel down the street. We asked about a breakfast place and the hostess at the hotel recommended Ted's Taco and their breakfast burritos. I was reluctant, but it was the only place in town and so we went. Skipping all of the details, the people were... More

This place is a hole in the wall with good food. Order the right thing and you'll be set. The navajo taco was probably the best I have ever had.

Awesome food for folks on the go and for those who are visiting our area. Locals know Ted's as a place that serves outstanding local fare at a very reasonable price. We have eaten at Ted's on many occasions and have never been disappointed with the food.

We live in New Mexico and are very picky about breakfast burritos. This place is THE BEST. Everything cooked to perfection with amazing flavor. Enjoyed visiting with the locals who eat here and talking to the man - Ted! A must place to eat!

Rude and will mess up your order. Will talk behind your back while you get money out of your car. They also assume extra jalapeños is 3 jalapeños, won't be eating here again.

This is a small non descript place which will most likely have the chairs up on the table when you walk in. Place your order and put the chairs down where you want to sit, they do this to clean easily after the last patron. The fry bread was light and airy, covered with typical taco meat, lettuce, onion and... More

Fried bread was light and crisp served with honey, cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar. Excellent! All types of breakfast burritos with optional (mandatory in our book) green chili. All was fantastic. Alton Brown was here at some point, pictures of him and the cook are on the walls. Atmosphere is run down cafe but who cares? Its the food that... More

I made Ted's one of my first stops on my return to summer employment at Mesa Verde National Park. I stopped in for an early lunch. I had the Navajo Taco one of his specialties. It was everything I look for in a Navajo taco. Light crispy frybread, seasoned meat, cheese, tomato. Ted's frybread is always delicious. Try some of... More
