The Hooligan is the best sandwich ever! I drove 2100 miles based on reviews to try one of these sandwiches, and I would drive it again for this amazing sandwich. HOOLIGAN RULES!

First timer today. Best Cheesesteak I've ever had. Simple as that. I will be a frequent visitor even if it does mean increasing workouts to burn calories. Excellent!

Seriously the best Philly I've ever had! Bread was soft but held everything together as best it could. Tons of meat and cheese and oooey gooey deliciousness! One tip: do not try to eat this on the go, it is crazy big and probably wouldn't work well while driving :) FYI - this is truly a shack and not a... More

Been here 3x traveling through Idaho. Just can't describe how delicious the Philly is. So much meat & so much flavor from the sweet peppers & onion. It's hot, messy & worth it. Big enough to feed two, but then there wouldn't be any leftovers. Can't bring myself to try other choices on menu. Here two days, already been once... More

This place is hands down the best cheesesteaks spot in CDA, if you have not tried this place you are missing out.

Moist, tender philly steak sandwiches that I like better than the "authentic" ones I had in Philadelphia. I had the Monterey Jack mushroom one, can't wait to try My next one with grilled onions and peppers. They have signs up all over, but be aware this food will take some time. Worth it.

Second trip to the Shack for a philly. Decided to try the Garlic Philly since I love garlic. This sandwich was to die for! The service was awesome, with the most friendly staff around. Can't wait to go back to try another. Without a doubt some of the best philly cheese steaks around. If your in the area or feel... More

The best sandwich shack... It is by far, the best Steak sandwich I've ever had. Portions are very generous and every sandwich I've eaten here are very consistent. Very flavorful. I've eaten here at least once a month for the last 3 years and I've never had a piece of fat or bad meat. The people are very friendly.
