Having never been to Philadelphia, I took a chance while on a recent visit to Coeur d'Alene, and tried my first cheese steak. WOW! I got my cheese steak with cheese whiz and grilled onions. It didn't disappoint. Friends of mine who have been here and Philadelphia tell me this is as close as it gets. It's probably good I... More

They serve up a great Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich and the Brownies are homemade daily and very good as well. All done to order while you wait. Fresh and great tasting with their bread baked fresh daily. A very good sandwich.

A bit of Philly in ID? Mom&Pop joint dishing up their best imitation of Philly. cheesesteaks aren't bad - where they fall short are the rolls. While locally sourced, they don't have the crust that makes the roll standout. Friendly service. Meat Your Maker is a whopper of a sandwich - pretty tasty though!

I was really surprised how much I enjoyed this place. Great cheesesteak. So lean! Call ahead. It's worth it.

Really good sandwiches made while you wait. Plenty of meat on the fresh hoagie roll. I like the BBQ and any of the Philly Cheese varieties.

My husband kept raving about this place so I finally went with him to try it... It was good! Huge portions, great prices, and friendly family ran service. The steak is cooked in house and has excellent flavor.

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
