I love the gluten free bread they use for their sandwiches. However, I am gluten intolerant, not Celiac. If you’re worried about cross contamination, this probably wouldn’t be the best place for you.

They have a separate station where they prep gluten free sandwiches. But they put it through the same oven as other bread so crumbs are flying everywhere in the oven causing cross contamination. I've eaten here over 30 times and I'm a celiac and I've gotten sick half the time. But most recently I did not get sick and they offered to make the sandwich without toasting it, so I can take it home and toast myself. Since I'm a celiac I can't eat here really but I still do every now and then because they are so good. If you're not a celiac you gotta try this place. It's a 5/5 stars but since it's not fully safe for celiacs I gotta go 4.

They have gluten free bread but that's all. No accommodation appears possible in the kitchen. I've gotten sick here twice.

I've been here a handful of times. i have gotten sick more than not. I'm a very sensitive celiac and can't have cross contamination whatsoever. they make the bread in the same oven as gluten beads. they also will bag your food in the same bag as gluten sandwiches if you had other people on your order. won't go back here anymore.

Omg so good. So many sandwiches to choose from, and the gf bread is a SUB, not two little tiny pieces of your typical gluten free bread. Staff is so friendly and informed me that they do share a kitchen, so cross contamination is a possibility. Sandwiches can get a bit pricey but you get a lot of food.

One of my favorite places ever! A gf sandwich on its own will cost about $10-12, but so worth it! And the staff is so incredibly friendly

New to Arizona went to the Mesa location. I called ahead regarding their gluten free bread, was told it was home made and delicious. It definitely didn't disappoint

Place was amazing!!!! My girlfriend is vegetarian and obviously needs to have zero gluten. Plethora of vegetarian options! I myself love me some meat and they had every possible option you could imagine! Think of subway and quisnos had a baby that was made of the best ingredients you could imagine........BOOM that would be Ike's!

I for one have missed getting to have Subway, and this place ' s Tony Soprano with the sauce makes Subway seem like a poor excuse for a sandwich place! There is a small risk of cross contamination, but I didn't get sick , and I am pretty sensitive (pure celiac disease). If you go between 3 pm and 7 pm, you get free chips (gluten free), a drink (soda; no diet choices), and a sucker for dessert! Worth a visit!

GF & DF (Gluten/Dairy Free) Sandwiches! Ike's Place in Tempe offers GF/Vegeterian/Vegan options on REAL Gluten Free Hoagie Rolls (locally sourced GF bakery)! My current fave is the "Tony Soprano" (Ham, Italian Dressing, Salami, Turkey, Lettuce/Tomato/Banana Peppers/Onions, and their super-awesome "Dirty Sauce"). Be sure to order IN PERSON & stress that you have GLUTEN ALLERGY; insist that they change their gloves/prepare separately. So far, I've had their sandwiches & no reaction (knock on wood!). Thanks so much to Ike's for being the friendliest & best GF/DF hoagie shop in Mesa AZ!

I have ordered in the past and their sandwiches were very good. When ordering GF bread there is an option for "preference" or "allergy" which is nice.

The issue I had this time was the GF bread. I remembered it being bigger and fluffier. The bread was about twice the size of a bread stick and it had a very dense texture. It was somewhat reminiscent of the Bfree Baguette I have bought from Walmart. This caused the sandwich to just fall part and it was impossible to eat without a fork or just getting down and dirty with your fingers. I ended up just eating the meat and toppings and tossing away the rest. In my opinion, for $30 it's not worth it. Moving forward I'll just go with Jersey Mike's when I want to spend $30 on a sandwich again.

At Ikes sandwich place, I had such good food. They have gluten free bread and they prepare all the gluten-free stuff in a separate room. They are so on it about food, allergies that they put it in the receipt and on the register sandwiches are so delicious, and they have a vegan gluten-free ice cream. Something you can do is a make your own sandwich with seems so good. It is so good. My order was a cheddar sandwich with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, avocado, no mushrooms and aïoli which is kind of like a garlic, mayo sauce, gluten-free bread. I hope you love it as much as I do. Five star review.
