ALTADENA, CALIFORNIA -- My wife and I recently visited Ted's after hearing it advertised on the local A.M. talk show. We were surprised at the prices ($55.00) for a 9 oz. filet. The staff seemed very inexperienced and the waitresses were so heavy that they could not even maneuver around the tables!
When we complained about the dirty silverware, the owner, Ted Bell came out and yelled at us for about 2 minutes! I could not believe some of the words that were coming out of his mouth. This guy should be shut down for talking to his customers like that. My wife left in tears, and he stuck us with the whole bill, even though we had not begun to eat our meal as he started his tirade. The entire experience was demeaning. I urge everyone in the Beverly Hills, Santa Barbara and Rock Island, Illinois areas NOT to visit his businesses. Despite the slogan, Ted Bell definitely did not "Put his meat in our mouth".
