“The Best sandwiches ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

I heard about this place from my hairdresser. I was the one who got the great tip. Ike's was started by college students in San Francisco. They have a lot of meat and veggie choices that are unusual but delicious. My favorite is # 1 the Elvis Keith it is chicken and Wasabi mayo. All sandwiches come with their special Godfather sauce. My husband loves the P hil'er up KC BBQ and the Matt Cain is great if you want a traditional sub. They have unusual chip flavors and drinks too. I like the Creole chips and Sarsparilla. This is my new first choice for sandwiches. There are many locations some called Ike's place. If you ever have a chance stop in you won't be disappointed

“Great original creative sandwiches, vegetarian friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

Great friendly, helpful fast service. The sandwich we had was great. They have a very good vegetarian & vegan selection. A full sub was enough for me & my wife for lunch while hiking Pinnacles. They have some interesting flavors of non Coke/non Pepsi soft drinks.
