Eat up: SLO is getting another sandwich shop! Ike's Love & Sandwiches is opening its first location in San Luis Obsipo (and 57th location overall) at 1028 Chorro St. On Friday, March 8, Ike's is celebrating its grand opening, and the first 50 customers through the door will receive one free sandwich. Bubblegum Alley is getting a sandwich named after it, with fried chicken, Asian zest sauce, and pepper jack. Another unique-to-SLO sandwich Ike's is introducing on Chorro is the Thank You for Not Smoking, a vegetarian option with vegan chicken, Asian zest sauce, and pepper jack. Apparently zesty sauce and zesty cheese make things oh so SLO (visit loveandsandwiches.com to check out the menu) ... In case you missed it: El Pollo Loco now has a location in SLO. It's slinging that famous fire-grilled chicken next to Target. You can experience love at first bite with three new enchilada platters available for a limited time at 11982 Los Osos Valley Road! ... Granada Hotel and Bistro opened an "intimate cocktail experience" called Nightcap. It's a cocktail lounge featuring cocktails, bites, and sipping spirits (open from 5 to 11 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and 5 p.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturdays, granadahotelandbistro.com). Δ
