This place is so good! Can´t recommend it enough. Be sure to get there early and be prepared to wait otherwise. But it´s well worth it! Best sandwiches we had in SF.

I had the pleasure to devour a few of Ike's delicious sandwiches during my weekend in The City. His Dutch Crunch bread is the best sandwich bread I have ever had, and overall, I enjoyed every bite of the sandwiches I had. I was even lucky enough to meet Ike himself when I was here. Very friendly and successful man.

This is one of my favorite spots in San Fran for a quick bite. The sandwiches are delicious and the portions are big lots of meat.

This place is consistently delicious and awesome. I ate many times at their locations in Oakland and in SF (Castro), and they never fail to disappoint. I almost always order the Paul Reuben's and it's one of my favorite sandwiches in the city. Call ahead if you can to avoid the wait. And yes, there is a wait because it's... More

We stopped by Ike's for lunch. We were very pleased with the three veg sandwiches that we tried. We had the veg meatball sandwich, the veg Asian chicken and the veg blt. These were simply fresh and excellent. If you're looking for a great veggie sandwich, try Ike's!

Big expectations for Ike's place since the tv-show. The place was hard to find but we were so happy to finally get there. When we wanted to orded we was informed that the wait was over one hour for every meal on the menu. The guys did not seem to be in a hurry thou, no movement in the kitchen... More
