Behold the Paul Reubens, and All of Ike’s Other Sandwich ‘Milestones’

The Paul Reubens. It's a Reuben, basically, and we don't know quite what Pee-Wee had to do with it.

This week the Bold Italic shines a spotlight on the much spotlighted (and slightly over-exposed) Ike's Place. Owner Ike Shehadeh makes a mean sandwich, don't get us wrong, but good sandwiches aren't so hard to come by in this town, and we're not sure Ike's always deserves to be on such a high pedestal. That said, the sloppy behemoths make for pretty good sandwich porn. See a rundown of Ike's "milestone inventions," including the colorful Paul Reubens, with pastrami, purple slaw, and French dressing; and the famed Menage a Trois (chicken, honey, BBQ sauce, honey mustard, and three cheeses) which was featured on Man vs. Food.
