Great Food!

We stopped here on the way to the Badlands, and I must say this was perfect decision! Both our sandwiches were delicious. I haven't had much experience with Cheesesteaks being from Texas, but this would have me hooked! The sandwiches were full from end to end and a tasty to the last bite. I highly... read more

I have had some good and great Philly style cheese steaks in my life but there is no substitute for Philly Ted's. Make sure your stomach is rumbling before going because you are not going to want to stop eating once you start. Get the sandwich of your choice but make sure to also include some cheese fries, they are... More

Just moved to town and tried Philly Teds. It is an exceptional cheesesteak. They even offer Whiz. However, if you do not like that as a choice, they have plenty of other options. The same can be said for the toppings. All sandwiches are 12" and the bread is very good. I had tots as a side. They were delicious.... More

Awesome food would be 5 stars but the seating is just a little tight, but I really enjoy the food and the feeling the restaurant gives off. They have numerous signs that demonstrate the idea very well. Bottom line the food is great I had the packer and I would have it again! 3 different cheeses on a super soft... More

Visiting Rapid City from Philadelphia, I had to give Philly Teds a try. There are only a handful of places in Philadelphia that I buy cheesesteaks from. I think Ted hits the mark with his steaks. It still is not authentic, but it is pretty dam close. If you are in Rapid City and looking for a bite to eat... More

Have eaten here since it started on the west side, years ago. Absolutely outstanding. What really makes it for me...the rolls. As great as the filling is, the rolls are unbelievable. Ted English not only brings this great food to Rapid, but volunteers in many ways to the community, above and beyond. This place is a winner, in every way.... More

Chris, thank you so much for your kind words. Both the culinary review and your recognition of our commitment to the community, are greatly appreciated. Since I've been in Rapid City,I've seen businesses come and go. If I depended on bean counters to dictate quality, quantity, and price, I too, might be gone. But my philosophy of giving customers the... More

Their cheesesteaks are phenomenal. Do not expect a sit down restaurant experience if you plan to eat in. The space is limited so the seating area is utilitarian which does not take away from the food experience in the least. I will continue to eat here whenever I get the chance.

Went at dinner to grab a Philly. No place to sit unless you head next store the the "casino". Had the BBQ Philly and I thought it was decent. Fries were OK. The people were busy but very nice. Took some time to get the order but everything was made fresh. I would go back but the food was good,... More

JHK, thanks for stopping by, and for your comments. I wish you had forgone the BBQ sauce. In Philadelphia, a real "Philly" doesn't have BBQ or A-1 sauce on it. A lot of my sandwiches, however, are concocted for local tastes. Many of my cheesesteak additions can't (or won't) be found in cheesesteak shops back East.-- thanks again.-- Ted E. More

While visiting a buddy in Rapid he told me about this place. We went in and I ordered the "Packer" it was delicious! On my last day my buddy asked me where I wanted lunch and went back here with no hesitation. On second visit the sandwich was just as good if not better. Owner came and talked to us... More
