Excellent variety of sandwiches in San Francisco. Reasonably prices, Great value for take out. Order more variety from online menu. You will love it. Highly recommend for lunch.

If you are going to visit Ikes you should know the following.

1) There are no tables in the restaurant (problem for all first timers because they would not know this).

2) The store front is a dump, gross and not appealing.

3) The place is located out of the way from Union Square cost us $20 each way by taxi.

4) Bathroom is disgusting.

Here is the good news, the food was excellent. The line was practically out the door. The subs were perfectly made like a sub enthusiast wants even down to the lettuce shredded perfectly and the wrap just right. The food was affordable, subs we're roughly $11 with chips and soda. The crunch bread is unusual and simply Outstanding. I will be looking to find this type of bread which must be made in house.

Exceptions: The cheese steak on the west coast is really roast beef (HUH?) so for you east coaster's....not the wisest choice. There was no italian on the board...(WHY?) and last you need to tell them what you don't want on your sub or you will get lettuce tomato and special sauce.

This may sound bad, but I am going strictly on the quality of the sub here because that is all a sub experience should be as you can grab and go.

Ike's Rocks!
The sandwiches are big , tasty, flavorful and messy. The line is out the door and the wait well worth it.This is a take out joint -no seating. The funky atmosphere will grab hold of you along with the great food.Enjoy!

My 13 year old son wanted to go to Ike's during our trip to SF after seeing the sandwiches on Man vs. Food. We took a metro train to the Castro station which wasn't far from Ike's but we did have to walk thru groups of homeless people to get there (But maybe this is the norm for SF). We arrived in the middle of the afternoon on a Tuesday and there were only a couple of people in line and a half dozen people waiting for sandwiches. We ordered and got our sandwiches fairly quick. The sandwiches are very good, but seemed expensive; three subs and two bags of chips for 46.00? No place to eat them but the dirty sidewalk or some questionable park three blocks away? The sandwiches tasted great and had cool names (We had the Lex Luthor and the SuperMario) but I had that feeling of being ripped off when I walked out the door (Again, maybe this is the norm for SF?).
