If you have never had a real Philly Cheesteak this is a good place to start. As close to the real thing as you will get. Great food eat in or take out. Get fried onions and Cheesewiz on the steak and wiz on the fries and you will be in heaven. They have pictures of all the famous Philly... More

Folks there's nothing to see here. They serve average at best sandwiches here on white buns. The mushrooms tasted out of a can & the cheese, processed. They have very little overhead at this horribly decorated place and the prices have been all blacked-out at the store??? Would not recommend.

Very small, place with excellent food. Very friendly staff and would go back again if I could. In a small shopping center but worth the stop. Do not miss.

The facility is just a sandwich shop carved out of a strip mall on LaCrosse street, just a couple blocks west of I-90. In nice weather you can eat outside on cheap plastic tables. The philly steak sandwiches and all the variations are TERRIFIC! Messy, but terrific. The fries are rough cut, home made and the staff is very considerate.... More

For a family that has eaten cheesesteaks when there is a vacation chance in the east, optimistic Trip Advisor reviews sent us here! If you want a great Philly style cheesesteak and some with a palette pleasing twist, head on over. It's small and thankfully not enough elbow room to use electronics and enjoy a reasonably priced and delicious sandwich... More

Thank you Paletteonthego for your nice review of Philly Ted's. I'm glad you were optimistic before heading over to us. Most people who have experienced a genuine Philly in Philly, approach us with trepidation. They expect us to be bogus. But they usually leave with a satisfied smile on their face. I guess it's my 50+ years of eating these... More

Turned off open sign as they looked at us walking to door. Had several people inside waiting for food and someone at counter ordering. We asked if we could order. The lady at counter walked and looked at the time and threw up her hands and said "we are closed". I own a restaurant and certainly would never treat a... More

Dan , thanks for your review of Philly Ted's. I'm sorry you were shut out after our closing hours. I was not there at the time. As you know, we can't be there all the time, even as owners. I asked my people, and they said they were slammed before closing time. They didn't have time to turn off the... More

This is a little hole in the wall restaurant which primarily does take out, but there are a few tables - six or so. We were looking for a light supper and found the recommendation on Tripadvisor. So glad we did. The subs are large and wonderful. We asked for a recommendation, and the counter lady gave us 3 or... More

Erica, thank you for your thoughtful review of my cheesesteak shop. I do wish you were more specific as to the time and day you were there. What sandwich did you order ? What cheese or sauce did you want ? Maybe it was us who left something off. I don't know, and we are not perfect. But we try... More
