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

The owner hails from there as well. What... More

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

I live 150 miles from the nearest Philly Cheese Steak Shoppe and will not pass through Arcata or Eureka without stopping in for a Philly. Try a double double, or a spicy chicken, they're all great! Enjoy!
