If you like philly sandwiches this is the place. Many choices of variety put-together. Very tasty and hot and fresh. Yummy! Seating outside is nice to enjoy to.

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

Our family stopped at Philly Ted's for lunch based on TripAdvisor reviews, and I'm so glad we did, we might have skipped it otherwise. There's nothing fancy about the building its housed in, it's got a very low-key and casual atmosphere, but don't let that fool you on the quality of the food. There's a great selection of cheese steak... More

and they missed the mark here. Steak sliced too think, Cheese whiz instead of provolone.. I get better at the deli. Overrated by folks desperate for a cheesesteak!

I have not had a sandwich so delicious in a long time. Living in Florida this cheesesteak sandwich was wonderful. I am not a big meat eater but would go back for another. Great little place. Loved the bread, not a too much bread sandwich. Flavor was so good, steak tender. Small restaurant can not accommodate a large group for... More
