Ike’s Love & Sandwiches, a Bay Area favorite, opened its first of two locations in Bakersfield.
The Valley Plaza Mall location is now open in the food court, according to a press release on Friday. The items on the menu feature Bakersfield-themed sandwiches like the “Frank Gifford,” with halal chicken, mango sauce and provolone cheese.
The second location at The Marketplace is set to open next year, owners say.
Back in 2010, the New York Times posted an article, saying patrons wait close to two hours for their chance to taste what they believe is nirvana between two slices of bread.
