This place has fantastic sandwiches. It is usually a must-stop on our trips to SFO. The only real downside that its located outside of the downtown area. So you either need a cab or a rental car if you are visiting. Basically devote about 2 hours for your trip. The payoff is worth it.

The best sandwich we have every had. My son researched and found this place, it is small, no seats, constant flow of customers and I can see why. We had 3 different sandwiches and all were amazing. Staff is fantastic, make you feel at home.

So far this is the best sandwiches place in all CA and maybe in all USA, it's a small place, there is no tables or chairs but that doesn't matter when you take the first bite of you sandwich, it like your in heaven

I would not say I know a lot about sandwiches or burgers, but I have had my fair share of experience tasting different things. Having said that, I don't think I have ever tried a sandwich as full of flavours as the "ménage à trois" I ordered at Ike's, bacon and red onion added as extras. It is a complex... More

My son saw this sandwich place on man v food, it's a 15 min cab ride out of the centre of sf but well worth it!! And when you get there it wasn't what we were expecting!! But well worth the cab ride! Lots of choice, staff were really helpful and the sandwiches were huge... & excellent... Not disappointed!!

I've always wanted to visit this place ever since seeing it featured on Man vs Food a few years ago so as soon as I knew I was going to San Francisco there was no way I wasn't going to grab lunch here. There is a sizeable menu which I scoured through online and selected my sandwich days in advance,... More

A little off the beaten path for us, but read the reviews and that this restaurant has been featured on Man Vs. Food, so knew it had to be good. Unique sandwich combinations and large portions. My wife and I could have split, but glad we each got one so we could try several different sandwiches.
