This sweet little diner serves an excellent fish fry for under $8. The cook, who may also be the owner, breads the cod by hand. They have good potato pancakes and fries, and great cole slaw and rye bread. We have tried many fish fries...More

Ted's is an old fashion ice cream parlor with great food. The breakfasts are great and a real value. The hamburgers and malts are great at lunch time, and their Friday Fish Fry and their potato pancakes are the best. I've been coming here for...More

It's probably best to go here with lower expectations. Their food is very reasonable priced. A burger, fires and a soup or salad is something like $6.95. Nothing on their menu was priced over $7. My burger was fine, but it the whole place is...More

I've been visiting Ted's since high-school. Breakfast (eggs Benedict) or lunch (hamburger & a chocolate malt) are FANTASTIC. Like the diners of the 50's and 60's this place continues to please. If you're in the area - you need to treat yourself to an tasty...More
