The food was great here and the service friendly. I felt the cheesesteaks were authentic relative to the places I've been in Philly. The only negative was that there were a few vagrants loitering right in front of the door presumably from the casino next door. We debated whether we were to go in. We ultimately decided to and were... More

Put it in your phone when you come to rapid. Small place. Limited seating so I recommend to go or eat outside. Nice big sandwiches. Best steak sandwich I've had. And Ted was there. Great guy very friendly. The only suggestion I have for Ted is to change up the chili for the chili cheese fries. This is a must... More

Stopped here over a year ago after seeing their commercial on the hotel tv. All I can say is after having one of the best cheesesteaks ever, I make it a point to get one whenever I'm in Rapid City. Total hole in the wall atmosphere completes the experience.

Been stopping here for over 10 years. Same great food. I stop ever time I am in the area to get my Philly fix.

Husband and I were in Rapid City at the end of July. My dad grew up in Philadelphia, so I spent many summers visiting relatives there. I don't remember eating much besides cheesesteaks and hoagies (always with a yoo-hoo)! I've been to Pats and Geno's - and from what I remember from my childhood Philly Ted's is right up there....

I lived in Rapid for 2 years and when I wanted to torture my guts with magnificent flavor, I went to Philly Ted's and got a Packer cheese steak. I never had room for the fries, nor did I try their other, non-cheesesteak (and therefore inferior) sandwiches, but damn their cheesesteaks are good, I'm not afraid of a little gastroenteritis...

This was my 3rd visit and they've not disappointed me yet! The sandwiches are delicious, always hot and fresh and filled with meats and cheeses.....my favorite is The Panther. Try them, you'll love it!

Stopped here twice and both times ordered the Raider - beef, pepper jack cheese, garlic, onions, and jalapeños. Wow, great sandwich. Lots of meat and flavor. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Worth a stop if in the area.

My wife and I agreed that this was the best meal we had in Rapid City. We ordered tater tots with our subs which were good, but we really didn't need them because the subs are pretty big. This is great food at a very small price.

We stopped here for takeout after reading other reviews on Trip Advisor. The menu is varied with many original versions of the original cheesesteak. I went with the original. the bread was fresh and soft. We visited close to their closing so we were directed to the attached storefront that houses a small strip mall casino to wait. We were...
