“Great food and pie!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

Came here on a recommendation of a local. Had a lunch that was prepared well and tasted great. Not a big menu but what they do, they do well. And the pie here is homemade and fantastic. The pecan pie was one of the best I've ever had, and people call me the Pieman.

“Excellent, as always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Ike's has become our always-stop Tucson-Las Vegas-Tucson. Visited again 4/30, were greeted and seated and served immediately. Pie was as fabulous as always, as was rest of the meal. Friendly small-town service and we'll continue to make this a regular stop.

“Pass by this one”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Yikes is spot on....Took forever to get service....only after we flagged down the only server who looked like he did not belong serving food. At least 11/2 hours to grab a "quick" breakfast. Food was average at best. Pass this one by....Rated # 1? Really?

“Should be called Yikes”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

This place should be called Yikes! The service was horrible. A sullen looking girl with a baseball hat on backward, seated us and eventually brought us water. They were out of their chili. Actually it wasn't ready yet but it was around 1pm so I don't know why that would be since it appears to be their specialty. We ordered burgers. I opted to get the homemade coleslaw for an additional $1.69. It tasted so gross that I couldn't eat it. When the strange girl asked me how it was, I told her that it tasted very sweet and strange and that I did not like it. She didn't even bother to remove it from the table (or the bill.) The food took over 40 minutes to come out. I thought that they had gone to butcher the cow. The burgers were mediocre and the fries were DARK brown. I don't know why anyone would ever go here. I sure won't again.

“Rating #2”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

Someone has posted that Ike's is closed on Sundays. Ike's is closed on Mondays and open on Sundays. All meals are great but nothing beats the chicken fried chicken with sausage gravy for Sunday's dinner special. Pecan pie is a favorite and a certificate posted for 2012 People's Choice Award was for the Pecan Pie as a delectable dessert.
