I've never had a problem with Evo, and I'm on the east coast. I ordered my newest board from there during the Black Friday sale, and got it in like 4-5 business days, which is pretty much what standard shipping says it is supposed to take.
Like others said, if you need something right away, buy it from your local shop. Evo was great, they even price matched another site plus an extra 10% off which enabled me to get my board for about 50% off retail. I'd wait a lot longer than 5 business days for that discount.
