Ike's has been a recipient of several awards for their amazing sandwiches. All the sandwiches have funny names, but none of them will disappoint you. Of course, if hungry trying the Kryptonite sandwich can be interesting. I love the combination of ingredients in each of Ike's sandwiches and do make it a point to visit this place when in San...

I had the menage a trois sandwich (and added avocado) and it was genuinely the best sandwich I have ever had. The chicken and honey was so delicious, even though I was so full after I could of have another and another. Go here and try that sandwich!!!!

Hear this::: the line is long, and it moves slowly BUT STAND IN IT! You want this sandwich; I promise. Everything is good-- and just go ahead and add some mozzarella sticks.

Well worth the wait, sandwich was amazing! When we first arrived there was a big Q but it went down pretty quickly (maybe about a half hour wait) once we ordered we only waited about 5-10 mins for our sandwiches, would recommend the spiffy tiffy or ménage a trois but I think any one you get you won't be disappointed!

To keep it in context- it's a sandwich shop, but worthy of the hype if you value 42,000 options and great bread. Employees have free reign (according to one that we spoke to) to create combos, so the choices in the menu may in fact be never-ending. My husband tried the Kryptonite and loved it. A $26 sandwich seems absurd.... More

Stopped at Ike's to grab a bite after reading all the good reviews on Tripadvisor & they most certainly lived up to them. If you haven't been here before you'll definitely need to step to the side & review their long list of delicious sandwich options. They all sounded amazing so the decision will be tough & make sure you... More

We found this place by chance when driving around Castro. The sandwiches were amazing, juicy and delicious. Since we were not planning to take the food somewhere else to eat, it was a little disappointing not find a place to sit! It would be nice if they could add a few chairs and maybe tables?! Anyway, as a take away... More

The reason for going was because we had seen the place on Man vs Food, and it was totally worth the trek across town for us. Don't expect much of the location - its a small room with a place to order and a waiting area for collection. However, the sandwiches are awesome! We took a walk around the corner... More

We got a cab out to this place after seeing it years ago featured on Man V Food and wanted to go to some non touristy hotspots on our trip. When we arrived I admit I was expecting the place to look a little less run down and grungy, and not even have anywhere to really eat at. Lots of... More

So, the sandwich (a Jaymee Sirewich on gluten free bread) was delicious. If I'm honest, it was a little pricey, but delicious none the less. However, I agree with some other reviewers... While the kitchen looked spotless the 'front of house' area looked like it needed a good clean. And the servers, while charming once I was being served, left... More
