They offer a wide range of cheese steak options for herbivores and carnivores. The sandwich rolls they use are amazing!

The food was delicious, the price was right and the two people working there were very nice and friendly. The cook seemed genuinely concerned about how well we liked our food, very nice. I'm glad we ate there.

Consistently great comfort food keeps me coming back. Just got back from South Jersey, and I can't complain a bit about this place.
Add malt vinegar to a cheesesteak hoagie and the fries if you haven't tried it!

Oh yes, this very conveniently located sandwich shop just at the end of the pedestrian bridge from Humboldt State University offers a casual atmosphere and great food. Order any sandwich and it comes with freshly baked bread and oodles of toppings. Refill your drink at no charge and enjoy.

I've had really great Philly cheese steak many times before, just not at the Philly Cheese Steak Shoppe in Arcata. They just don't quite get it right, and the dining ambiance is plastic (not) fantastic. With so many good inexpensive lunch choices in Arcata (LFNY pizza, Smugs, various taco trucks, APD, etc), PCSS just isn't compelling.
