All the complimentary food was an added bonus to our delicious dinner. We had the tortilla soup, spinach and chicken quesadilla, fajita salad and tacos and we all enjoyed our meals. We had to wait about 30 minutes, but well worth the wait. The waiter...More

All i heard about this was "you get free chips, cheese dip, tortillas and cinnamon things." Well one taco is like 9$ so how "free" are those things really. The food was nothing special. Los cabos is way better. The service is good though.More

Free warm tortillas to eat with your salsa. Free sopapillas. Very good food. Be sure to get your beer Ted's style if you enjoy beer. Smaller than other Ted's that I have visited. Still great food and service.
