Guilty Pleasure-you have to try it

I do not eat deep-fried things very often. But, every once in awhile I will get a craving for some fried haddock or cod. This place will suit that craving. The fish they use (I think it is cod) is in these beautiful, long white strips that look to be about 6-8 ounces or more. It goes way past the... read more

A local favorite. Food cooked to order, fast and cheap. All the locals know it, multiple locations, exactly the same at each.

Counter service can be a bit slow given that they fry the fish to order. The good part of the wait is that the fish comes out fresh and piping hot. It's hard to find great fried fish and this may not be great...but it's pretty darn close. Dog friendly outdoor tables are a plus.

We had a fish fry, french fries and diet soda. The food was fresh, plentiful and the price was very reasonable. We plan to return.

Ted's, at their various locations in the Capital District, has evolved into the best fish fry places around. They now sell mini hotdogs with meat sauce that are vey good, too. Service is quick, too. Just don't order the fried clams......they are terrible!

In Latham for business and a local told us to try Ted's for a good take out meal. They were exactly right. The lunch special was a great value for the price. The fish was perfect and the special "chili" was a great alternative to Tarter. Don't expect anything fancy here...but the staff was friendly and quick. There was a... More

Outstanding, perfectly fried, big old fish fry. I've tried Bob & Rons and all the local restaurant. This is by far the best. Tartar is good but the chili is awesome!

I grew up in Latham but now live in San Antonio tx. Teds is my first stop after leaving the airport on my way to my mothers. I usually stop in 3 to 4 times in a two week visit this trip was only a week and I had lunch there twice and dinner once. all time best comfort food.

They do it right. Really nice and competent staff. Nice plump shrimp and clams, great prices, and so fast, it will make your head swim.

Ted's on Wolf Road in Albany offers a $5.00 fish fry that has no rivals in the area. Usually haddock, ( but never SWAI or any other funky fish) is a great value & taste in the Capital District. Onion Rings & fries are not bad either. If you must wander off the diet, Ted's is a good place to... More
