Sorry about this. We usually get pretty busy in the evenings, and don't have a ton of options for switching around tables. That said, we should have been able to accommodate you if it wasn't too busy, and we apologize for that. Please feel free to give us a call if you have any more feedback for us. We hope... More

I enjoy the food here at Ted's. I'm always satisfied with the food and the service. Ted's at any location is always the best for lunch or dinner. Everything is fresh!!..Chips, salsa, tortillas, everything! I don't recommend this restaurant if you're dieting because it's hard to stop eating the chips and salsa. I also found the service exceptional. The staff... More

Absolutely one of our local favorites. Many locations to choose from, none disappoint. Be sure to try the atomic salsa if you like spicy. We like to mix it in with the quest and red salsa served with the chips.

The food is good but with food allergies, make sure the waiter understands English! This place seems to always be busy. Prices are decent and our evening wait with reservations was a little disappointing.

Our family likes the food and complimentary salsa and chips. They offer standard enchiladas, tacos, burritos, chicken dishes, fajitas, and deserts. The food is always hot when it arrives and the servings are generous. They also offer complimentary tortillas that they make fresh in premises. The atmosphere is lively and they are usually very busy. The only drawback is the... More

Fantastic Best Mexican Tacos!! Salsa is always fresh! Service is very friendly! Get there before 630 or 7 o'clock if you want to get a table at a reasonable amount of time. But it is worth the wait none the less!

This is a great experience, many times you have to wait to be seated in the busy times but it is well worth the wait, you can watch them make tortillas, and realize that you will probably eat what you saw being made.
