Ted’s Cafe Escondido placed first in both the “Best Mexican Food” and “Best Margarita” categories in the The Oklahoman’s 2021 Readers’ Choice Awards, the publication announced Tuesday.
“We’re so honored to be recognized for our food and drinks by The Oklahoman’s readers,” said David Foxx, Ted’s concepts’ chief operations officer. “Our company has taken great pleasure in serving the community for nearly three decades, as well as all of the towns we’ve made homes in during that time. Your votes mean plenty to us, and we can’t thank the people of Oklahoma enough for their support.”
Ted’s Cafe Escondido’s victory in the “Best Mexican” category marks the ninth consecutive year the restaurant has been named The Oklahoman’s Readers’ Choice Awards’ best Mexican restaurant. Ted’s Cafe Escondido, which opened its doors in 1991, has received the honor 13 times.
Ted’s Cafe Escondido’s award for “Best Margarita” is its first time to take first in the category.
