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.

Near perfection! Only thing missing is Amoroso's bread. We made it there just in time to order 4 cheesesteaks minutes before closing. Turns out we were the beginning of a last minute rush as 8 other people placed orders after us! This place is busy down to the end of the day. There are a few tables to dine inside... More

Feeling grizzly following a fast lunch at DQ, I looked up the best restaurants in South Dakota and in Sturgis/Rapid City. Philly Ted's appealed because it is casual and my husband likes cheesesteaks. A sign in the order room states that Philly Ted's is not a fast-food "joint." The place is primarily takeout with two large metal patio tables outside... More

They have a ridiculous amount of options. I didn't order what I would have had I known ahead of time. But my Philly was very good. I also really liked their simple but well done fries. They have a very big city feel. They seem proud of that. We just picked our Phillies up and took them back to our... More

I checked reviews for the area and this came to the top of the list. A little hole in the wall with a great sandwich and the lady at the counter was awesome. The signs in the shop were entertaining as well. We didn't finish our sandwiches but had the rest of them on the road the next day!

They advertise that they are local 's favorite. I was not impressed. Basic Philly cheesesteak, with no side items for 2 was over $25. Sandwich was ok, but not good enough to return.

I'm sorry you had a poor time here. I'm not exactly sure what you ordered but just a plain cheesesteak is 7.85. so if you were overcharged I will look into that for you. More
