This was by far the best sandwich that I have ever had. My stomach is so content that I could never eat again and I would be satisfied. I had the SF Cheesesteak and is was made by the hands of god. Based on this review, I hope you all share the experience with the rest of the city. Enjoy!

We found out about Ike's from Man vs Food. We caught the F line street car and it was pretty easy to find after getting off at Sanchez St. We got there to order just before the rush for the lunch queue. Lots of selections to choose from and staff were patient and friendly. We waited for a good 30... More

The Matt Cain on Dutch Crunch with pickles, onion and extra lettuce was amazing! the BBQ ranch potato chips were real nice and a nice ice cold cola to wash it all down. I may have been sitting at the bottom of a stinky tree when I was eating this but it felt like I was sitting in heaven! Best... More

I highly highly recommend Ike's place for its food. The staff are also very friendly, though there is not a lot of sitting room. We got our sandwiches and walked to a nearby park. It is cheap and tastes amazing. We went here 3 times in the week we were in San Francisco. We also ran into the owner who... More

There is such a huge selection of sandwiches to choose from, it is very hard to decide. But what is great for people who need to avoid gluten is that all the options are gluten-free! We were even asked if we had a gluten intolerance or allergy so that the preparation can be done as safely as possible. The sandwiches... More

I would recommend Ike's to anyone and everyone! I was recently visiting San Francisco with my friend and we both are gluten free (not by choice). She introduced me to Ike's and I immediately craved the next bite. Usually with gluten free bread and subs, they taste nothing like the real thing. But with Ike's .....I would have never guessed...

Very good sub place with a huge selection of subs, all very unique which makes it fun to explore and try something new. I had the Menage a Trois and thought it was quite good, however, the bread was a little too dominating for my taste. We only went there once since it was a little out of our way... More

When you go on foodie websites and a sandwich spot is number one on the list, then you know it has to be amazing. In this case, believe the hype. This is THE Best Sandwich i've ever eaten. I have no idea how they make a sandwich taste so good but it was like eating Jesus' tears. After reading a... More

We did a long weekend in Frisco and our first destination after finding our hotel was Ike's. We saw it on Man v. Food and were dying to give it a try. I got the Dutch crunch bread and wasn't disappointed. My boyfriend's favorite part of his sandwich was the jalapeño poppers. Yes, they were ON his sandwich. The bread,... More

It took us 35 minutes to walk there from Haight (off the hop on hop off bus), and 40 minutes to get served. Then another wait to get the food. We then took our sandwiches to a nearby park to eat- very excited. Honestly? I was somewhat disappointed. I think it was called Nacho boy (???), roast beef / mushrooms... More
