We eat at least once a month at Teds. Our favorite thing is the fajita nachos. We often share an order, and it is plenty of food. We love that you can ask for the hotter salsa.

Excellent service and complimentary tortillas and fillings and great chips and salsa. Generous servings and excellent quality food. Save room for a free sopapia (sp) at the end.

Best chips and salsa in town. But, If you like your salsa Hotter they will bring you some with big chucks of avacados in it. You can't beat the homemade flour tortillas made as you watch, or the complimentary cheese sauce and sopapillas!
