Good cheesesteak

Good cheesesteak much like you would get at Pat's. A lot of meat and cheese on a roll. Some in our party had the chicken cheesesteak and they said they enjoyed those as well. The full size is quite large, so if you don't have a big appetite, go for a half.

The entry way is a little too small to accommodate the amount of people ordering food, and there is not much room to place things while trying to fill your own soda... its a little bit of a juggling trick with items, and a dance with people. if you want to dine in, all 6 of the tables were all...

The staff was very helpful and the steak & cheese is what I'd recommend! We went as a group and all tried different things. The chicken and bacon sub special was okay, the turkey sub was good as well, but the Hamburger was horrible. (I'd personally would never order a burger at a sub shop, & only tried it because...

Great place for a quick lunch that fills you up. It's a small establishment so I usually take it to go. Would definitely go again

This is my favorite hole in the wall place to eat at in Rapid City. The shop isn't anything fancy. It is mainly just a kitchen and a few tables crammed into a tiny space. Don't let that deceive you; their Phillies are amazing. They are perfect for anybody who has a craving but wants to do better than fast... More

...try the killer meatball sub. Flavorful, moist meatballs, great marinara, with mozzarella cheese. And like the cheesesteaks, it all starts with those great rolls.

Goods sandwiches and great menu of you like a good philly. Not a lot of room to sit but there's room in the back to fit in. I always try to stop in when I'm in town.

I had heard several people rave about their food so my wife and I thought we would try it. The service was atrocious, the young people working there seemed more concerned about talking on the phone than taking care of customers. When we received our sandwiches, they were nothing like any philly cheese steak that I have ever had. The... More

Sorry about your experience at Philly Ted's Cheezsteaks in Rapid City. I noticed that you visited our shop in November 2014. A year before your review !!! And you only have one review to your credit. I guess it takes time, sometimes. I guess your experience with the cheesesteak was not in South Philly. That "canned process cheese product", you... More

Excellent service. Not much seating so plan accordingly. This food is perfect for take out. Call ahead is available so you can just pick it up.
