Came here for somewhere to eat when I'd just arrived in OKC for work. Seated me quickly and had attentive but not OTT service throughout the meal. Burrito meal was excellent and very filling

The food's good but the seating is crowded and the area is VERY loud. So if you are going for a relaxing dinner, you might want to look elsewhere.

If you enjoy typical mexican american food this place is for you, the food was good, but not anything I would write home about. There was a quite a wait to get in, the service was really good, and the restaurant was very clean.

Ted's is a great place to eat. The food is consistently good and the service is awesome. Wait times on the weekends are normally 15 to 20 minutes. Best times are lunch on week days. Portions are large and reasonably priced.
