Can't stop thinking about that cheese steak

Stopped here after a day of hiking in the redwoods. We were very hungry and read some good reviews on here and on Yelp. I ordered a cheese steak with jalepenos and ranch and my husband had some special that they were advertising on the wall (can't remember what it was). We both LOVED our... read more

This is an "order at the counter and we'll bring your food to you" kind of place where you are handed a glass and you choose your drink. My wife and I both ordered the Philly Cheese Steak which came with fries and a drink. There are several booths inside and two tables outside with umbrellas. We sat outside in... More

My husband and I are born and raised east coast people but recently moved to the left coast. We were elated to find a Philly Cheesecake place on the west coast and had to try this place. Their Philly Cheesecakes hold up to the best of them! These guys know their Phillys and the place is decked out in Philly... More

Always great customer service. And delish cheesesteak. My fave is the double meat double cheese, bacon, mushroom and swiss. It's a little costly, my sandwich is around $13 by itself. Cheese fries are really good too.They serve beer now which is nice. And I like the out door seating during the spring and summer. Great location right next to HSU.... More

Proper cheesesteak in Oregon. Little shack restaurant, 2 guys working the place and doing both food prep and counter. Excellent food, very wide variety of offerings. Good prices and service. Not a lot to look at from outside but it'll be the best cheesesteak you have on the west coast!

we visited the restaurant during our trip to the redwood park. That was a swift stop before taking a trail. The service was fast. We found the food delicious.

Yum Yum!!! My husband and I had a Philly beef and Swiss with bell peppers, onions and mushrooms. I found out after we ordered that there were two sizes--- Regular and Junior. I was dismayed because I thought that I should have ordered a Junior and would not be able to eat regular because of the large amount. BUT NO!!!!... More

After 6 visits over the course of 3 months, I am a full supporter of this place. My appreciation of this place is so great, I've written this review twice.( webpage bugged out after first submission) If authenticity is a concern: I spent the first 15 years of my life in Philly. The owner hails from there as well. What... More

This is no holds barred, unapologetic oooey gooey deliciousness! Steamy soft bun with hot cheesey goodness! Leave your diet at the door and the vegetarians at home.....comfort food with no excuses! And if you ever get bored (you won't) they have fabulous variations that do not destroy the tradition of a Philly, mushrooms, tomatos etc....all good! Oh don't get me... More
