I always eat here when I come to rapid city! Great place! I always recommend this place. All the times I have eaten here I have never had bad service or bad food, now that's saying something!

Thank you very much Nick. My Rapid City store has been a labor of love for over twelve years now. I try to stay on top of things as much as possible. Even without the amount of restaurant competition, here, I'd still do my best. And bring a taste of Philly to South Dakota. -------Philly Ted. More

Stopped in at the recommendation of my nephew who loves this place. We were not disappointed. I had the traditional cheesesteak and it was as good as promised. I would eat here again.

This is among the best cheesesteaks we've had, and that's includes both famous philly locations. The bread is chewy but substantial enough to hold it all in. We had the mushroom cheesesteak with provolone. The steak is tender, flavorful, and lean. I wish it was a little saltier, though. Our kids had the chicken nuggets and fries, both good. I... More

Thanks for your review. I like to check in from time to time on this site. It is a way of monitoring how our product is accepted and perceived. Having eaten cheesesteaks all over Philadelphia for nearly 50 years, I felt I had enough experience under my belt to open up a shop---(pun intended !) I've been doing this for... More

This place has soul. EXCELLENT good and a great place to dine. Simple. Nothing fancy. Fair prices and good filling food. I'm a frequent visitor.

I'm a local, and Philly Ted's is my favorite. Genuinely tasty, fresh food. Good service and good value. Large menu selection, and everything's great. You can't go go wrong.

We are here based on the high reviews and local word of mouth. The sandwiches were good, but not great. The meat was a little under seasoned and they were skimpy on the cheese sauce. I would give it a try again just to see if the next time was better.

Having lived in Philly and the Philly area for several years, I know a bit about cheesesteaks. This is about as good as you're going to get anywhere out of the area. The steak itself is pretty close to the better places in Philly. The rolls, while good, aren't really up to par compared to the ones from the old... More

Only visited once due to a very brief visit to rapid city, had the packer which was lovely, stuffed fully of steak and cheese, really tasty, small shop front and seating for maybe a dozen or so, most people were ordering take outs, 17 dollars for 2 subs and 2 drinks. Happily go back to try more

Ate at Philly Ted's after reading all of the great reviews. If you're a Philly Cheese steak lover, ignore my review-- please! Obviously my wife and I just don't "get it." We're from Atlanta, and have had some great meals in our day-- but I'm sorry, while the Philly cheese steak we each had was "very good", I just can't... More
