The first time I tried Ike's was in their branch inside Stanford. I was initially skeptical with news that the wait time for a sandwich would be upwards of an hour. Being mainly a rice eater, I was very impatient by the time I got my order (maybe 90 minutes later). and Yes.....I wasn't disappointed. The wait was very much worth it and I couldn't wait to try it again. In my last visit to California, I initially thought I'd have to go to Stanford (or their Castro branch) and a good surprise was their opening of many stores in the area.
The Danville store allows you to order in advance through their iPhone/facebook App. Since the app was down during our intended visit, we went directly to the store and was just prepared to fall in line. Our order was processed and sandwiches in hand within 15 minutes even if it was at lunchtime on a Friday. The sandwich (Madison Bumgarner) was superb, served on Dutch Crunch and with dirty sauce. The rib eye on the sandwich was very tasty and the servings were quite big (good for sharing if you are not too hungry). I also tried their bottled ginger ale and it was very interesting. All in all, this visit made me want to come back soon to try at least 2 more sandwiches (I did the next day and also liked their Shawn Michaels and another sandwich with had Fried chicken for the meat). Don't forget to get their free caramel apple lollipop which serves as a good finish to a very tasty meal.
