I hate to give it a "four"-- but I gotta.

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... read more

I have travelled to the black hills many times to see family. I am from chicago and was looking for a good simple sandwich. Someone recommended Philly. When I got there I questioned it, because it is a small simple shop. The menu took a little time to study, because they offer so many different options. After many stops at... More

We, too, ate here on Thurs. 9/26. The steak in our cheesesteaks was chewy with fat in the meat. Also, the cheese is cheez-whiz, not real cheese. The roll was good and the fries were good. I honestly do not know what all the hype is about. You do get a lot of meat for the price - too bad... More

Overcooked, dry, completely unseasoned, stringy meat. Stingy with the cheese and bacon. This is the first time I've been to Ted's in about a year and it's nothing like it used to be. I hope this was just a bad night (Thursday 9/26/13) but I doubt it.

Thanks for your review. I'm sorry if your cheesesteak was not up to your or our standards. I know it can happen. I have a sign posted for my grill people. It says, "Get it brown, get it down. There is no such thing as a well done Philly cheesesteak". We try to do our best, believe me. I don't... More

Hungry and stopped here. Nothing fancy, but the sandwiches were very good and reasonably priced. Can't go wrong if you stop here to eat.

I ate here twice, I had a mushroom cheese steak first and wings the second time. The cheese steak was excellent, the wings were okay, nothing special.

My wife and I both ordered the mushroom cheese steak. I thought it was a good sandwich at a reasonable price. I would probably visit again. I would have to say the sandwich wasn't quite as spectacular as I thought it would be. Then again, I have only tried one of their sandwiches. They are definitely worth a visit.

These are the best cheesesteaks that we have ever had, and we have tried several actually made in Philadelphia. Nothing fancy about the place, but pure deliciousness in their food. Their burgers are tasty, too.

The food was AMAZING! I had the Chicken, Bacon, and Cheese sandwich and it was to die for (mouth is watering as I type!) We will definitely stop back when we go to Rapid again!
