We stopped by Ike's for lunch. We were very pleased with the three veg sandwiches that we tried. We had the veg meatball sandwich, the veg Asian chicken and the veg blt. These were simply fresh and excellent. If you're looking for a great veggie sandwich, try Ike's!

I had the ménage A Trois on Dutch bread and banana peppers. This sandwich was delicious!!!! The neighborhood was a little questionable but sandwich was worth it.

Had a late lunch here and the food was great. Fast service and we were even provided with a gluten free roll for the member of our party who required it. Impressive fillings and range of sandwiches. Well done Ike's!
