Super yum. My hub and I shared the meat your maker. It was more than enough for both of us and was delish! It's food cart with tables outside. It was nice that they were covered because it is a super hot day. It came with a brownie for dessert and they threw in an extra since we were sharing.... More

Had to see the #1 place in Coeur D'Alene. The Sandwiches are HUGE and can easily be shared if your not hungry enough to eat a bear. All come (I believe) on Hoagie type buns and are loaded with meat. Several sandwiches to choose from. All freshly prepared for you, the gentleman was kind and honest to a fault. He... More

Searched TA to see this place #1 in Couer d'Alene. We always come down from Canada and have been driving by this place for years. Tried it today and man do I regret not finding out about this gem earlier!! My wife and I each had a classic philly cheese steak. Was about 15 minute wait but as they say,... More

Came down from Canada for another family vacay and I made sure the first stop was the BEST SANDWICH SHACK. Like last time 2 years ago, it again was delicious. It's worth the wait time for the sandy. They cut and cook everything fresh right there. Must try. Put it on the list FORSURE.

My husband and I ate here yesterday. Hubby was a little apprehensive because of the location (we have had bad experiences with food trailers and trucks), but he as soon as he bit into the drippy goodness of the sandwich, he was hooked! We split the Philly w/ cheese whiz and an order of fries. Very satisfying and with drinks... More

I have never written a review before, but just had to after having dinner here last night. We wanted to try it, since we had seen such fantastic reviews about the food. My son thought this was the BEST sandwich he ever had, and I have to agree! LOVED everything about it, and we will be back again!!

I've been to Best Sandwich Shack a few times now since moving to CDA in May and of all the places to eat in this town, Best is probably right at the top of my list of favorites. The sandwiches are huge and heavy, loaded with meat, grilled veggies, cheese, bread is soft and gooey and perfect. It says they... More

This place is literally a shack on a patch of asphalt in front of a junk yard just off the Interstate, but its sandwiches are fantastic. Mostly variations on the Philly cheesesteak, it also offers a great NY sausage sandwich. I don't know how it can stay in business with the low prices and huge portions, but it has been... More

We were on a road trip passing through the area for the first time. Sick of fast food. Found this "number one rated restaurant". Easy to get to from the interstate. Fabulous sandwiches, best philly cheesesteaks of our lives. Great fries. Super friendly counter woman. Best surprise of our trip! Would be our "go to" place if we lived here!
