    Come hungry and leave w/ your mind blown. The secret sauce is a must. Use the app to order ahead & skip the line! Do not get the mozzarella sticks. They get soggy fast & turn to mush in your sandwich

    The long lines are worth the wait. Not all sandwiches are on the board. Look online at the menu. WiFi was available so you look at the menu while you wait if you want. Order ahead faster pick up.

    Weekend ritual: order a sandwich from Ike's and take it to Dolores Park. Avoid the hour long weekend line by downloading their Android/iOS app and ordering an hour in advance:

    Since Ike's showed up on Man v. Food, it's been a challenge to get in and out of this place quickly (pro tip: call your order in ahead). Try the famed Kryptonite sandwich but bring a friend to help. Read more

    Ike’s offers a staggering number of sandwiches, which you should order on its famous Dutch Crunch bread. Check out the “That’s Hella True” (artichoke hearts, provolone, roast beef). Read more

    Best sandwiches ever!!! Be sure to try the Kryptonite its amazing, and is big enough to share with someone, and also the menu its only 1/10 of what they have, you can ask for recommendations

    Amazing sandwiches, fresh ingredients, and the nicest service. If you are in the Mission, it's a must. Check the Mayoose's CA-BLT out!

    Greatest sandwich you will ever eat in your life. Lots of vegetarian and vegan options. Be cool with waiting a bit and taking your food somewhere else to eat it, though. Worth it!

    Got the Menage a Trois. You know those annoying commercials where the model takes a bite of something and their eyes get all big because it's that good? My face did that. I felt it happening. So good.

    "[Name Of Girl I'm Dating]" aka "Bella" has been taken off the menu, but it's still available! Halal chicken, avocado, pepper jack, honey mustard. And get it on your birthday, for free!

    Hot Mama Huda is my fav - but check the website for the full menu. You won't find the full listing in the store... It's over 100 long!

    The secret is in the sauce. Bitterly, this place creates better sandwiches than I could ever put together myself. The CA-BLT is the best.

    The Menage a Trois: Chicken with three cheeses and three sauces. Add pickles and dirty sauce (and nothing else) for the perfect balance of incredible flavors. Then nap for an hour.

    Gluten free bread from Mariposa, menu online specifies other GF ingredients. And they ask at the checkout whether it's a preference or Celiac. 👌

    The Lincecum sandwich is SO GOOD! And their Leninade soda is wonderful. Their potato chips are just ridiculously tasty. What a great place!

    Hungry? There are so many choices and they are so filling! Get the iPhone application if you have one to order in advance and speed up delivery of your tasty sandwich.

    The lines are long but the sandwiches are good. Anything with their hand-pulled roasted chicken is great. Avoid the flavored sodas.

    Sandwiches are generally extraordinary and come with chips. Can get very busy during lunch periods. Dutch crunch is very good bread

    Good sandwiches, BLT had great dressing. But portions are huge, which makes it difficult to eat... nice to go during the week, but I wouldn't wait 1h in line on the week end...

    The best turkey I've had between two pieces of bread or even outside of that. Dutch crunch is the bread you should be getting

    Past home to "Joseph Schmidt's." A Holocaust survivor who made chocolate sculptures, Schmidt sold his specialty chocolate shop after Hershey's purchased his brand for over 30 million dollars!

    I love the Paul Rubens. Everything here is great except the wait. Go at off hours. Be prepared to stand in a cue.

    Try one of the many terrific vegetarian or vegan options such as The Pilgrim -- vegan turkey, cranberry sauce, havarti (or soy cheese), and sriracha.

    If you're at least 15 minutes out/away call your order in, and always ask for extra honey on sandwiches with honey (not that they don't put enought, but extra honey is deelish.

    They stopped taking credit card! Really annoying as my wife and I hardly ever carry cash. The app they use for credit, Kash, is easy to setup, though.
