Subs were very similar to what we tried in Philly. It was good but I wished they heated the bun since enjoying a hot steak and cheese sub on a cold bun doesn't gel in my opinion. Still would recommend it.

Their Philly Cheesesteaks can be constructed any way you wish and are so juicy and flavorful, you will need extra napkins. Really good.

Went to the Rapid City downtown store twice and ordered a chef's salad. It was pretty lackluster. There was hardly any lettuce in the salad I had. Usually chef's salads have turkey and ham. This one just had ham. The dressing was supposed to be...More

I was in need of something fairly fast and close to my hotel. Found Philly Ted's on Yelp and gave it a try. Being from the east coast and frequenting Philly I'd say that this was pretty good. The bread is not the same, but...More

...and that's a shame. Went to the downtown location. Sandwich was dry and nearly flavorless. Service was as lackluster as the sandwich. Ted brought a passion to this place that the new corporate owners can not possibly achieve. Bottom line is too important.

Ted's has it done up right. I haven't been to the downtown location yet, but the walk-up and go location on lacrosse street is good. Big sandwiches and a lot of love for the money honey!
