“Big sandwich!”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

This place has a queue system in place but it moves fast. The menu is crazy. They only display part of it in the shop (full online) but even that is too much to choose from - amazing choice! Wish we had time that day to sit in Mission Dolores Park with our MASSIVE sandwiches. Cool place, great concept for a sandwich bar.

“Gourmet sandwich!!”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

We had heard about Ikes so had to try it. The place was packed with people which means the food must be good. We shared a sandwich as we couldn't eat one by ourself. We were only in San Francisco for four days but went back a second time and weren't disappointed.

“The best sandwich”
Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

I was in San Francisco for 2 days last week as part of a California vacation with the family. We went to Ike's the first day( we knew about this place from Man v food on the travel Channel ). And man. That was the best sandwiches we ever ate. They were so good we went back the next day. We tried 5 different sandwiches, and they were all good. If you ever in San Fran, please go to Ike's. you won't regret it

“Wow great concept!!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Ike's was definitely a place I knew I wanted to check out whie in San Fran.
I recognized Ike right away from tv shows talking to the long lineup of customers.
The menu is unbelievable,,,,so diverse and exciting.
It's strictly takeout so you choose your sandwich and you get a bag of chips and lollipop with it.
Ike was also giving the crowds free soft drinks which was a nice touch.
I went with the Count which was like a monte cristo sandwich. Tons of meat and great Dutch crunch bread. Huge sandwich!!
I went by Bart subway to 16th street stop and it was about a 20 min walk from there. Def worth checking it out.

“creative sandwich”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

love all the sandwiches ;) great variety for everyone from vegan to vegetarians to meat-lovers (like me)... used to give out BOGO coupon now it's Buy 3 get 1 ;(

Matt Cain, just friends and Damon Bruce are my favorite... Kryptonite is also awesome but I can't afford to eat in on a regular basis

not so good for people on a diet .... packed with calroies and fat and sodium
