Staying overnight in town and asked for recommendation from hotel. They quickly mentioned Ted's so we called in a take out order of chips and queso. Very good! Staff was very friendly and offered extra salsa. Perfect end to a long day.More

Ted's has it all. Fast and friendly food. Clean restaurant and great service. Everything is amazing and they can really get it to you in a hurry. For the most part, they do a great job of accommodating big groups too.

The service was wonderful. As usual the chips and salsa and cheese sauce were excellent. I ordered a chicken enchilada and a pork street taco. SO GOOD!

Took out kids and grandkids to dinner here. As usual the food was beyond delicious and the staff is exceptional. Chips and salsa are best. Fajitas are wonderful. We always eat here when visiting our kids and grandkids. Our favorite place by far.
