Unbelievable Sandwiches!!!

Just stopped by and we had the Philly and Buffalo Chicken Philly....AMAZING! The roll is perfect and the meats tender and delicious! The beer battered fries are also great. We even had a sweet treat of a brownie as a surprise in our bag. A Real Find!!!

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.
