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.

We were here about 5 years ago and my husband was anxious to return. It was not good. The meat had too much fat and cartilage and ruined our appetites. The good news is that I get to pick where we go for dinner tomorrow night😬

Five stars to a take out place.......himmm. Yes, the Philly Steak sandwiches are better than anyone else's. And I've tried them everywhere, including Philly. Homemade bread, top quality meat and plenty of it, made any way you want. They actually do have a few tables and chairs, including on the sidewalk, but it's mainly a take out business.

Awesome food at a reasonable price! Had 'The Hardrocker', which was cheesesteak with raw onions and something else. Every bite of the sandwich is a mouthful of meat.
