Cooks has the best fast food fried seafood in the bay area. Fish and chips are to die for. Food is always hot and fresh and never over cooked. Nice staff too!

Cook's has a restaurant attached to its fish market. They serve delicious fried fish/ seafood salads / fries. I love their haddock fish & chips. It's great for a quick light dinner. They also provide take-out service.
