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.

Great cheesesteaks and other food. Friendly staff and decore with attitude. This is a must stop for lunch in Rapid City.

We ate at Teds based on reviews and rating and for the second time in RC we were disappointed. The food and service were average. My husband had the cheesesteak with bacon. I had the Italian Sausage with peppers and onions. It was dry. The sausage has a little kick to it, though, which I liked.

Been making a trip up to Rapid City every couple years and this is my go to place. The Hardrocker is amazing. However, the quality of the philly I had on this last trip was just so-so. The meat tasted watery and had little to no flavor. The chili and cheese still made it a good sandwich, or I was... More

These cheezsteaks are the REAL DEAL. You'd swear you were in Philly. If you're a local, hold onto the "Impact" magazines you get in the mail for offers (recent: $1 or $2 off a sandwich, or two free drinks with purchase of two sandwiches). Second location is opening Sept. 1 at Main Street Square.
