We chose Philly Ted's because it was ranked #1. We were not disappointed! I was born and spent the 1st 6 yrs in Phila so I know what a good cheese steak should taste like. When I ordered I asked the woman how did they get the name of the restaurant and she pointed to Philly Ted. turns out he... More

Yep- the place is small, but that doesn't reflect on the food or service. My family of 5 stopped in there for lunch, based on the reviews it received on Tripadvisor, and found those favorable reviews to be right-on! The staff was helpful, inviting, warm and friendly! They checked on us and the other patrons to ensure we were enjoying... More

Thanks to Trip Advisor, we ate at Philly Teds. Delicious Philly steak sandwich on yummy bread. The small place had a line out the front door. It is not fast food. We did have to wait a few minutes for our sandwiches. It was worth the wait. I had onions on philly steak, which I split with my husband, and... More

A large selection of sandwiches cooked to order, good prices and a LOT of food for the money. The dining area is tiny so to-go orders are your best bet.

We went to Philly Ted's directly from the Rapid City airport to have lunch (found PT on trip advisor). When we pulled up I thought we would have to eat in the car - that maybe it was take out only. To my surprise there was some seating (not a lot and I'm not a fan of eating in the... More

Very tasty Philly cheesesteaks. Just had the original with cheese, but next time will be sure to try the other varieties. The reasons didn't give its five star was because of the atmosphere...I don't want anything fancy, but something more than plastic cheap lawn chairs would be nice. Will definitely be back!

The Philly was pretty good. Not great, but really good. The portions were HUGE! The dining area is very limited. The sandwiches were really big. The bun was very fresh and the meat filling was very juicy. The fries were really crispy.

We're from North Carolina and we're visiting Rapid City, we heard of Ted's from our hotel and also off of trip advisor. It was definitely worth the stop! The food was great! Best cheesesteak I've ever had! And not to mention the service was outstanding, Ted was super helpful and very interested in his customers experience!! A+
