“Small but Big”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Small place big flavor. Authentic philly's done in so many ways I can't count. Fast food without the fast food bland flavor. Owners are great people but the inside isn't tuned for a sit down eatery. Plan on ordering on the go.

“another great experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Ive lived in the Rapid City area for about 8 years now. Ive been going to Philly Teds for a good amount of time and i have to say that its in my top 3 places to visit when im in rapid city. The food is amazing and the service is friendly. The atmosphere on the other hand could use some attention. But all in all the Food and the service overcomes the atmosphere. Great Job Philly Teds. Keep pumpin out that amazing sandwiches.

“Damn good cheesesteak!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012 via mobile

Always good food and friendly service! But they need a bigger place. Other places in RC say they have good cheesesteaks, they don't.

“pretty darn close to pats & genos!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

as philly/south jersey guy now living in SD [east river] i always stop here when i come to rapid. it is a mini-version of the two icons in south philly, so don't look for "nice" sitting area, etc. i always get cheese with raw [onions] so can't comment on their special cheesesteaks, which are named after NFL teams [and the local hockey team] and

i'm never disappointed. ted behind the counter and the person on the till help "rookies" with their order. why not an excellent rating? 1) roll's a LITTLE smaller than philly rolls. they ARE very fresh & soft. 2) where's the big tub of sauce or ketchup?? maybe i missed it.

seating area is small but if you're over 21 you can eat at the connected casino, which has bigger tables.
