Ted's has been an Island favorite since 1974. Karen has perfected her menu. Try the classic breakfast (yummie waffles and pancakes), burgers /sandwiches or her award winning fajitas and daily specials. Fresh strong coffee gets the appetite in high gear. Opens at 7 AM, great...More

These pancakes are so good I couldn't stop eating them. I also had the fried eggs over easy (perfectly done). The cheese and bacon Omlet and the huevos rancheros were great and the prices fair. The people who work here are helpful.

A surprising cafe style on South Padre Island. Small but adequate seating for couples to families. Food was freshly cooked and served in a timely manner. Waitstaff was friendly and was ready to serve. Price was very reasonable. A gem that you must visit.

Great seasoning, fair prices. Services is lacked but you still get what you need. I wanted to take a picture but the hunger won.

Go for the food not for the atmosphere! The food is really good. It's pretty cheap and comes out pretty quick. The waitstaff had no personality. The place is really small. It's like an old house that had been converted to a restaurant

A little on the shanty side but food was outstanding & you are greeted at the door. Very clean including restrooms.
