We love getting the chance to stop in to Teds to eat! They have been around a long time because they have always had great quality food. Our absolute favorite aspect are their fresh made tortillas. Its worth eating here for that aspect alone, but its certainly not the only good feature. The rest of the food is great, the... More

This is the place for chips, salsa, and cheese sauce. You will never run dry! The Texmex menu delivers some tasty items. Their fajita meat is delish. Teds has the best salsa in town in my opinion. It's just right, not too chunky and not too watery. So, if I ever need a "last meal" it would include some teds... More

This restaurant is absolutely wonderful. The food, prices, decor, and especially the staff are all great. Wait time was about 30 minutes but was very much worth the wait. We especially loved the queso and freshly made flour tortillas which are unlimited and complementary. If you like Mexican food then this is the place to go.

Excellent food and service at this new location. The Chicken Monterey and Polo Ranchero were great. So are the tortillas, salsa, and cheese sauce. In their second week open, there are new restaurant growing pains. New staff, new managers, new everything. Food is good, very good. I have ZERO complaints.

I've eaten here a few times when here on business with others. There is generally some wait time which says food must be good. Once seated, the service is quick and food tastes fresh. They have the most delicate tortilla chips. Me and my compadres have ever had a bad meal.

I have never been a fan of Teds. I never really thought the food was that good, and always felt rushed to leave the table. I went recently with my niece and her husband at their request. I had the chili relleno with beef. I asked for some salsa verda and thought it was really good. Hmm.....maybe something new here.... More

This was my favorite food stop! We arrived early and did not have to wait, for anything! Complimentary chips, salsa and cheese dip were delivered as soon as we sat down. (We both received our own salsa and cheese dip bowls.) Waiter was very attentive, our drinks were replaced when they were half empty. The food itself was AWESOME! Follow... More

Ted's Cafe Escondido. What more needs to be said. The best Mexican cuisine in the city. Large portions, reasonable prices, casual atmosphere and friendly staff. My favorite is the chimmy dinner (spicy ground beef) or the beef enchalada dinner. Must visit several times a month.
