Sandwiches are delicious (ordered philly steak and whiz steak), and they definitely do not skimp on the meat! Also, staff is very friendly. Only downside is location leaves a little to be desired. Definitely recommend at least stop by and grab a sandwich to go!

They have all the right stuff and make a good philly for sure. I think maybe they could drain the grease a bit.

I cannot add any more superlatives to this little food box that other trusted reviewers have noted. What is cool, is that the whole area is becoming a food pod, with other food trucks and static food trailers--a la Portland, OR. This area should become a destination. We did rings and poppers from another trailer, and had fantastic sandwiches from... More

My family and I stopped here based on Trip Advisor's 5 star rating. We were wowed by the great service and some of the 'best' sandwiches ever. Located in a bright yellow shack on Best Ave., this isn't a fast food place. Be prepared to wait 10 minutes for a messy, blissful Philly sandwich featuring steak or chicken. The owner... More

Holy hell! Best philly my hubby and I have ever had!!!! He got chicken and I had the basic philly. We both kept remarking on how great the sandwiches were long after lunch was over. The owners were so sweet too. This place is a must!

This was my second visit to this place. I stopped here 2 years ago and was so impressed I wanted to bring my friend back. It is not fast food. They don't make your sandwich until you order so it takes about 15 minutes so budget that time. The Philly Cheesesteak is their flag ship sandwich and a must have... More

It takes some time to make but it is well worth the wait (10 min only). Great service as well. The is an amazing array of options and if you don't like what you see just ask as they are very flexible.

My wife read about Best Sandwich here on TripAdvisor. Upon pulling up to a fast food trailer I almost changed my mind....The Cheese & Roast Beef Philly maybe the best sandwich I've ever had. The remainder of the shopping day I kept thinking just how good that sandwich was. I made a special trip back by to order 3 sandwiches... More

This locally owned and operated little shack is amazing goodness. If your on a diet forget about it. Horrible for the waist line great for the soul. Love these sandwiches. Can't pick my favorite because they are all really good!
