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.

I stopped eating Philly Cheesesteaks about 15 years ago because it was so hard to find one that was really good. It seemed like the meat was always full of fat or gristle and didn't have any taste. I've had dried up old buns, cheese that never saw milk, and onions and peppers that should of been in the compost... More

They have outside seating at a couple of picnic tables in the summer time, but most to go in the winter. Weather certainly does not stop me either way the sandwich is that good. They have... More

This place doesn't pretend to be anything it isn't. In a town packing itself with presumptuous, yuppie bistros, they know what people REALLY want to eat. It's simple, delicious food, without the snobby "chef inspired" crap everyone else is trying to serve. This is great food, period.
