Great service

Went in and was greeted by the owner who was working the counter. Very friendly. I ordered the chicken salad. Service was fast and salad was very good. Large serving. Will definitely be back!

The reviews I read about Philly Teds being a small little place were spot on! This really is a cramped tiny little place. Luckily we hit it around 3:30 so we could sit at one of the tables. The gals at the counter were very friendly and patient with us as we asked about every sandwich, which was the best... More

very, very good cheesteaks. I do not know about the rest of the menu. I have only had a traditional cheesteak. The bread is made fresh. The sandwiches are large. The food is well prepared. They just added a mac and cheese to the menu. It is a must try. This place isn't fancy and seating is limited, but the... More

If you just need a quick sandwich then this is your place. Nice and small with fast service and great food. You won't go wrong here.

The food was OK but the main reason why I will never come back again is because the place is sketchy! The atmosphere was awkward, funny smells were coming by the pop machine, and not a very welcoming place to be. I also had to wait 20+ minutes for my food and it wasn't that busy at the time. The...

Have nothing but great things to say about Ted's! We have had cheese steak at both Gino's & Pat's in Philly. Philly Ted's in Rapid City beats them both for the food! (Atmosphere not so much. But you go there for the food!) Our favorite is a cheese steak with pepperjack cheese (rather than cheese whiz), grilled onions, peppers, and... More

We tried it after seeing the good reviews on trip advisor, and we're not disappointed. Friendly staff and delicious cheesesteaks.

Three of us are here and we all really enjoyed our meals. There are a lot of choices and they also have chicken wings. The service was quick and the staff was courteous.

After a number of disappointing meals, this place saved our supper! Everything we had was awesome, fair priced and smiling service. The ladies were very sweet. We are stuffed and considering going back to take one home.

Was in Philly once and didn't get to try a cheese steak. Heard the great reviews about this place opened by a transplant and had to try. I always say the best food comes from places that are shacks, holes in the wall, etc. and this was no exception. Don't get me wrong this is not a scary place to... More
