Wow that's all I can say. I went for the spiffy tiffy and it was an explosion in my mouth of taste and delight. I would recommend this place and the best thing is that it has a halal option.

Visited San Francisco on our honeymoon. Having seen Ike's Place on Man v Food, we had to go in search of it. Best sandwich ever!! Wish we'd had chance to go back for a second!! Well worth the walk!

Go to San Francisco, find Ike's place in the Castro and eat any sandwich on the menu and you will LOVE it! I certainly thought it was of the best tasting sandwiches I have ever had! Great spot!

Ordered the Jessica Rabbit on Dutch Crunch which was spicy vegetarian deliciousness. Also ordered The Change for another. Both sandwiches were very messy but tasty. Get extra napkins. The park up the street is being renovated so if you plan to go soon, don't go there to eat.

I love Sandwiches but unfortunately, I don't know many places which get the concept right. For me a good Sandwich should have different delicious components like any other food, not just a piece of meat and some veggies. We were 4 and got 6 different sandwiches and tried all together. I loved them all. Though this is no place you... More

This was probably the best sandwich I've ever tried. I first heard about this place in the TV... The size of the sandwich is perfect, the vegetables are fresh, the sauces are unique. Highly recommended!

We have to wait in line 1 1/2 hours and the options for vegetarian are very limited. I wanted a caprese sandwich the shop had not mozzarella, I order a mushroom and marinated artichoke heart with provolone. The sandwich was bland and it was not very appealing although the bread was great. The staff was was average at best. After... More

Stopped here while walking around in the Castro (maybe 5 minute walk) as we heard so many great things about the sandwiches. There aren't any places to sit and eat so either get it to go or plan on standing around eating. Definitely go online though and look at their FULL MENU of sandwiches. They only have about a third...

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...
