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

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!

I read the not so impressive reviews but decided to form my own opinion. The food and service were good. The Philly was average at best. It would have been better had there been more steak. The meat was tender and tasty just not enough....More
