What do people love more about Ted's, the food or the people? Yes! We've been serving fresh vegetables and meats since 1973 - decades before Farm To Table became the rage.

Breakfast or lunch, for homestyle Southern cooking seasoned with old style Greek hospitality, come see Tasos & Beba Touloupis - and enjoy a genuine Birmingham's Best experience.
