We picked Philly Ted's solely based on the reviews on this site. I never had a philly before, I didn't even know what it was. This review will probably best suited for non-Americans visiting the area, as I suppose anyone living in the USA will know what to expect from a philly. So a philly is a sandwich filled with...

Thanks for an honest traveler's review. We take all reviews seriously. And your's is very helpful. Actually, most people outside of Philadelphia, Pa., don't know what a real Philly cheesesteak is. My authentic sandwich is not ground beef, but is thin sliced raw steak meat cooked on a flat top grill. You have a choice of cheese and toppings. Just... More

Ted's is by far the best place I have eaten at. Everything they have is very tasty. The staff is absolutely wonderful and very friendly. I would recommend to any one who knows good food.

The best Cheese Steak I have ever had! I wish there was a "Philly Ted's," in my home-town. I would be there right now Ted, why don't you consider franchising? Yum!

Ted E, Owner at Philly Ted's, responded to this review

Jeff, thanks for your favorable review. Yes, the Packer sandwich is really good and the most popular. As far as franchising, we looked into it, but chose a "License Agreement" instead. It is less restrictive and much cheaper. You can call it a poor man's franchise. If you are interested, contact me. Thanks again, Ted. More

As someone who's been to Philly, these are by far the best on this side of the Mississippi. It is the only place I am sure to visit twice in one weekend any time I am back in Rapid City to visit family.

I ordered the Colt. It came out with no cheese no horseradish. When I tried to get it fixed I was met with nothing but attitude and informed that I must have ordered it with out horseradish and provolone because they don't make mistakes. Then I got told that if I'm going to whine they will remake it but I... More

Dwdwrkr (Deadwood Worker), first, I'd like to say, for all the Philly Ted shops, I;m sorry for your bad experience. We are the original shop in Rapid City. There is, also, a Philly Ted's in Spearfish, S.D. Maybe you ate at the Spearfish shop. It is 15 minutes from Deadwood. I asked my Rapid City people, who are generally very... More

This small restaurant had great service and good food. The eating area was very small so not good for large groups. There is a bathroom, but you go through the door in the back of the eating area and it is on the right. I would go back again because the food is good and take it to go. There... More
