“Best. Sandwich. Ever.”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

We ate at many nice restaurants over the course of our trip to San Francisco, some of which were quite expensive, yet our lunch at Ike's sandwich shop was hands down everybody's favorite meal! That's saying something!

“Great sandwich, long queue”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

First visit to Ikes's after seeing it in UK on Man vs. Food. Ménage a trois was great, as we're the chips but the 25 min wait to order at 1pm on a Sunday seemed excessive for a sandwich shop. Maybe a larger premises is in order now the word has got out?

“Local flair and great food! ”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

We ate here after a friend recommended it. Delicious sandwiches with a bag of great chips. Lots of choices, great tastes, local CA, company and in a great location in the Castro area of San Francisco. Worth a stop. Right off the f muni train and near lots of other places in the neighborhood. A place and area not to miss when visiting SF!

“SO GOOD! ”
Reviewed 8 April 2014 via mobile

I can honestly say this is one of the best sandwiches I have ever had. Their secret "dirty sauce" makes the whole thing. It has a bit of a kick to it, which I loved, but wasn't over-poweringly spicy. I had the Matt Cain and have absolutely no complaints but do expect to experience massive cravings later on.
The staff was friendly and helpful in their recommendations. There is quite a large selection, so there should be something for almost everyone in your group.
There is no seating, so be prepared to take your good to go or find a nice sunny spot on the curb outside.
Parking can be a bit difficult, since it is in the middle of the city but we lucked out and found a spot just down the street.

“Great sandwich shop”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

Great sandwiches indeed. No seating or service, however if you know that going in, you'll be happy with the giant sandwiches and with the leftover meal you will have from the leftovers from the giant sandwich!
