I have been going to Luke's for years and helped many friends discover a little taste of Chicago in the Sonoran desert. Luke's would fit in perfectly for an episode of Diners, Drive Ins and Dives since many locals make this a regular stop because the food is fantastic and the owner and his staff work hard to make it...

We were taken here for lunch by locals who love this place. The parking lot was full of trucks which is a good indication of its popularity and tasty food.

If you're looking for a run-of-the-mill sandwich shop this is not your place. This place has more personality than any sandwich shop Around. The food is made fresh and served cold when needed and hot when needed. The bread was absolutely fantastic on the sandwiches. We ordered the pastrami sandwich which was one of the best I've ever had. The... More

This place has great hot sandwiches such as Italian beef and Pastrami. I had the double dog and fries for lunch. It comes with two large beef hotdogs and several condiments (brown mustard, relish, tomatoes, onions). I simply had mustard and added sauerkraut (.50 extra). They serve their sandwiches on a delicious French roll and I have to say, they... More

Had lunch here today. I went with the meatball sandwich. Other friends went with the Italian beef and Ribeye. These are large sandwiches with a ton of meat. I had 3 large meatballs. I should offer a warning here, these are not simple easy sandwiches, these are up to your elbow messy sandwiches. These are very good with lots of... More

If coming here, make sure you're super hungry. The Italian steak sandwich with the fries and lemonade was super yummy! You won't be disappointed.

Lukes is just about the best Italian sandwich shop this side of Chicago. They use legendary Vienna meat products flown in from the windy city. Go there hungry, as the portions are huge and just delicious. Our hosts, Luke and his lovely bride are a gracious couple. Always with a smile and handshake and a "Glad to see ya". If... More

The Chicago dog with fries and the pastrami sandwich were our choices and they were very good. The service at the ordering counter is quick and efficient. The portions were big and the roll for the pastrami was substantial and held the juices without falling apart.
