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

Hubby and I both enjoyed our huge sandwiches, which were too big to finish, and much later enjoyed the brownies. These would be like pre-hybernation sandwiches.

We had to stop here coming through town, to see what the reviews were all about. Both hubby and I enjoyed our sandwiches just fine. No complaints.

During a recent stop we decided to see why they were rated so high; the food and the friendliness of the owners. For a non-refined meal, it is worth the stop. We stopped on our motorcycle and ate at the picnic table and were licking our fingers all the way back to the hotel.

Staying nearby on a 2 day trip through Idaho. Looked on Tripadvisor for someplace good to eat and this showed up. Had never had Philly Cheesesteak before but they also had NY Style Sausage sandwich which was excellent. Will be through here again in a couple of days and my try a Cheesesteak. The brownie was excellent also.
