This is one of the best places to enjoy mexican food. Homemade tortillas are always so good as well as the meals. Waitstaff very friendly.

OKC 's best Mexican food. The complimentary tortillas are good enough to be a meal themselves. Not to mention the enchiladas and traditional dishes, followed by sopapillas.

Ted's has the best Mexican food period. My wife love the chicken fajita enchilada and I almost always get the fajitas. Everything here is great.
