Staff was great but these are tiny 'regular' size sandwiches with little flavour. Was surprised as the reviews are so good but I think that is because there is so little to chose from in Arcata. Too bad as the staff seemed wonderful and were working hard so can appreciate the effort.

Looking for a place to grab a bite to eat with our dog, we stumbled upon this shoppe. I have never had Philly cheese steak before and was open to trying it. By time we arrived it was pretty chilly to eat on the patio, so we placed our order to go. While my husband enjoyed the regular sandwich, I chose a mushroom and garlic one, which turned out to be DELICIOUS!!! We also ordered garlic fries, which were also enjoyed very much. The clerk was very friendly and helpful while ordering, with lots of patience for my many questions. The location seemed to be a popular place for students, as it was directly across the bridge from the university, and offered discounts. Would definitely return when in the area again. Hope it did not spoil me for other Cheese steak places.

If you like cheesesteaks and want a truly authentic one, this is your spot. They import the rolls from Philly and they know how to cook them right. Its a bit expensive but you get what you pay for - they have gone the extra mile to import all the right ingredients and make a real cheesesteak, so it's worth the extra expense.

We had the classic Philly. It was tasty and the bread was good. They could be a bit more generous with the meat. Otherwise... the place was old but clean and friendly staff.
