This fast-casual chain is known for its playful pop-culture-themed sandwiches such as the Michael Jordan (beef meatballs, marinara, pepper jack cheese) as well as its signature Ike’s Dirty Secret Sauce that is smothered onto the bread before and after baking. Consumers can also grab plant-based options made with housemade vegan meats. Since first launching in 2007, it’s grown throughout California and beyond, winning many local “best of” sandwich awards along the way.
