This is definitely a hole in the wall, but the sandwich was incredible. I have had a philly in Philadelphia (supposedly the best cheesesteak place) and this sandwich was larger and better tasting. Would highly recommend it.

The lady that's usually at the front taking orders is a bit rough and rude. It takes a few minutes to get a Philly here, but they are worth the wait. Don't question the "Whiz" on the sandwich, it adds a lot to the taste and texture.

Even though I've lived my entire life in Rapid City, I had not eaten at Philly Ted's until a couple weeks ago. I've seen their advertisements, especially when seeing movies at the Elks theatre downtown. (The current one with the gangster is definitely on the annoying side, at least to me.) I will definitely be back, though! My husband had... More

Tigerv68, I really enjoyed your review on Philly Ted's Cheezsteaks. I found it fresh, honest, and well thought out. You are right about the messiness of Cheez Whiz. But that's traditional Philly. I prefer American cheese myself. I don't know which "gangster" you were referring to in my commercials. The characters are Clint Eastwood, Rocky, Jack Nicholson, and Abe Lincoln.... More

It is always the small hole in the wall restaurants that are the best in the world!!! I can't rave enough about how awesome the food is. Ted himself is a down to earth guy and never gave up on making the best Phillies in town. The service is friendly and fast, food is fresh and made to order. It... More

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
