Read about the owner and had to try it. I must say, the sandwich tranported me right back to my visit of Philly year ago. Great sandwich!!

i'm sorry you had a bad experience, we use all the same ingredients and meat as we have always used the only thing that has changed is the way you order it.

They have 2 locations and I've eaten at both, but generally eat at the downtown one. It does take a bit to get your sandwich whether they are busy or not but this is a bit to be expected as they are made to order....More

This place used to be fantastic, now they've sold and changed the menu, the meat is fatty, the sandwiches are glopped together, and they've raised the prices. You may not find Cheesesteaks anywhere else in town, but, don't sacrifice your yearning for this place.

One of the locals suggested, insisted actually, that we visit Philly Ted's for lunch. The menu is extensive and has quite a variety. The sandwiches have clever and fun names. I had the Packer which featured three cheeses as an ode to the Green Bay...More

Please move to Sioux Falls!!! We are in desperate need of some REAL cheese steaks over here. Just think about out it!

Ate the Steeler cheese steak, which is a combo. of a Philly cheesesteak, wiz and all, and a Primanti brothers style sandwich with the fries and slaw right in the sandwich. Bravo! Lots of cool quotations on the walls too.

We ate here 7/22/17 while staying in town. Ordered a Philly cheesesteak and onion rings. I could only eat a couple bites of the sandwich. Cheese was literally Cheese Whiz, and it made the sandwich horribly salty and so gloppy it was falling apart from...More

It's not good at all, and just thrown together with an overrated amount of cheese that makes the sandwich soggy. Try actually caring for what you serve to guest. Just my picture and other reviewers pictures show lack of attempt for a good sandwich that...More
