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.

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

Nice cozy little place amongst all the shops in downtown Rapid City. The service was quick and if you like Philly Steak Sandwiches it's a good place to stop.

They have different sandwiches that all looked good but we settled on the mushroom cheesesteaks. OMG they were sooooooo good. Wish we would have found this place the first day that we were in the area.

This place looks like a hole-the-wall from the inside but the food is good. Spouse & I both had "The Colt." Soft sub roll with extra mozzarella cheese & chipped beef with horseradish. $17. Small eat-in area. Predominantly for carry-out.

Thank Michael D
