We drove past Best Sandwich Shack while visiting friends in Couer d'alene. They live less than a mile away, but had never been. Imagine my surprise when this shack came up as the #1 restaurant in town! Tonight we stopped for dinner. The woman at the counter was very nice and helpful. We ordered a regular philly, a whiz philly,... More

We stopped in here after reading the reviews. We ordered a Hooligan (buffalo chicken/beef/bacon...?) and a Dirty Hippy (vegetarian) sandwich. They were both fantastic, flavorful, and huge. I think I may need to share next time. The wait/cook staff was polite and the service was quick (about 10 minutes). We will be back the next time we are in the... More

Simply one of the best sandwiches I have ever had. Owners were extremely nice and friendly, great to see a small mom and pop type place like this be ranked #1 for three years in a row.

I never ate at one of these "shacks." I was so impressed with how good it was. Then two nights later we called for five sandwiches to be delivered. Kip, who answered the phone, was so friendly and nice. Excellent place. I had the sausage sandwich. The best sausage sandwich I have had in decades; second only to the sausage... More

Nice little sandwich hut. Its north of the Interstate, so its not near downtown, but its totally worth the drive. Big sandwiches with lots of meat, cheese & toppings hot off the grill. Just a shack that does really good sandwiches. Don't let the location prevent you from visiting.

We came here because of all the amazing reviews. We thought the sandwiches were good, but nothing out of the ordinary for a sandwich shop. I'm giving it a 4 because the owners were very friendly, but only a 3 for the sandwich.

The sandwich was very good and large. My only complaint would be that it was very oily (it did ad to the taste!). The service was fast and the owner was very friendly. Try it.

I tried the "Best Sandwich Shack" for the first time after reading it was rated the best restaurant in Coeur d' Alene. That is not really a fair assessment as this is not a restaurant but a drive up trailer. They are moving to the "shack" in the parking lot next door so that should make their name officially correct.... More

Hard working guy deserves your business! Great sandwich we always split the original philly. Ask for two brownies and you are full of the best fast food!

My boyfriend and I tried this place based on the TA reviews and glad we did. We live in N. Spokane so this is quite a drive (1 hour one way) but we had some other stuff to do in the area. This was the BEST PHILLY we ever had! It was only $9 and they accept all major credit... More
