This is a taste of Philly in South Dakota. Although Philly Ted's offer several variations of a cheesesteak I always go with a traditional. I have eaten cheesesteaks around the world and Philly Ted's is as close to the ones in Philadelphia as I have encountered. You should go here!

The crew did a great job of providing me with an awesome sandwich. They have two locations now. One on Lacrosse and also one downtown. I have eaten at them both. Great food and great service.

On different occasions my family has ate at Phiily Teds and been happy. Our last few times have resulted in disappointment at both locations. Between the poor service, sandwiches that have declined in everything except for bread and the chilli cheese fries which were so small it was a total joke....I can honestly say that we won't be back.

I'm a Philadelphia boy born and bread. Ted's place is the real deal. Ted is a great guy and a true to the South Philly tradition. My wife and I are going to visit the new location tonight.

Went to the new location in Main Street square. No free parking. Went at 12:00 noon on Wednesday. Put 16 mins in the parking meter thinking I would be good. In and out. Waited for 25 mins to get through the line and get my food. Worth the wait and $10 price tag? No. Worth the additional inconvenience of $10... More

A friend and I chose Philly Ted's new location near Main Street Square for lunch. The food was pretty good, although my friend would not recommend their salads. My "traditional" Philly cheese steak sandwich was very good, but expensive. The "walk-up" ordering/service is not very good. I ordered a beer with my sandwich but did not get the "combination rate"... More

Nothing else than a fantastic Philly Cheesesteak! It's worth the price and absolutely delicious! Found this place by random scrolling on maps and it was a bullseye! Friendly and helpful employees too. Will come again.

I read about this place on Tripadvisor and thought it would be good due to the reviews. It's pretty popular in Rapid City, but I was expecting a real Philly Cheese steak. The sandwich had steak, grilled onions & peppers and a TON of Velveeta poured all over the sandwich. It was horrible! I guess if you want a real... More
