Hands down this place serves one of the best sandwiches in Ventura. And the fries are fresh made and awesome. You can't go wrong with this choice.

One of the best buys in town. French fries are wonderful. Sit in your car and eat, but be prepared for greasy fingers and no ambiance.

I went based on the reviews. Yes, the cheese steak was good. The shack itself is run down and the location is a lot to be desired. Eating outside was like eating outside an old gas station bathroom. I liked the sandwich but I am not sure I will go back.

I have been going here for over 20 years, and this little shack has some tasty sandwiches! Loaded with cheese, meat, and toppings, greasy bag of fries is a plus too! I would try the pizza steak or the original cheese steak. You wont be disappointed with the taste and service, it will make your mouth water every time with... More

This is a terrible looking place on a freeway on-ramp with walk-up service only but I go out of my way to get these hoagies. Great meat, plenty of cheese, hot, perfectly spiced with the sauce, onions, and bell peppers. Sinful. Better Philly cheese steaks than Philly.
