9 Great Tacos in the Rio Grande Valley

Ted’s Restaurant

Fajita and Egg

Hector Sanchez

For thirty years Ted’s has been serving breakfast and lunch to surfers, beach goers, and fishermen alike. When we find ourselves facing a full day of frolicking in the sand or body-surfing the bay, there’s no better beginning than their fajita-and-egg taco. Granted, the tortillas are not freshly made and the eggs are not particularly fluffy (hear us out), but the tender fajitas are cooked just the way we like them—with a slight crunchy char on the ends. The other factor that makes this meat so good is the tangy garlic marinade, which remains a closely guarded secret despite our most charming efforts to coax it from the servers. Remember to ask for a side of the homemade salsa, prepared with just the right amount of cilantro. 

5717 Padre Blvd. South Padre Island (956-761-5327). Open 7 days 7–2.
