We've eaten at Ike's Korner Grill many years back and have meant to go again, but with all the other restaurants we go to in Spartanburg, just hadn't got around to another visit.  This Saturday, we finally made it back.

Above is the classic cheeseburger with just mayo, lettuce and tomato. When people talk about a good burger, this is what most have in mind. 

Above is the Terrier burger (great homemade pimento cheese on a burger). This was another great burger, although I liked the classic cheeseburger a little better. 

The only thing we didn't really like were the fresh cut fries. We remembered them as being greasy under-cooked fries from our previous visit, but decided to give them another try. That was a mistake since they were exactly as we remembered them. However, there was one homemade potato chip in our basket and it was really good, so that might be the way to go. 

Ike's is a true dive, so if that puts you off, you might want to go somewhere else. Please Note: Ike's seems to have no problem closing whenever they decide with no warning. They just tack a sign on their door. My first visit they closed an hour early and on my second visit, they were closing 6 hours early (at 3:00 instead of 9:00) and when I arrived at 2:30 they said "sorry we're closed". Taking all of this into account, I will be reluctant to go again. They've got an excellent hamburger, I'm just not sure it's worth the hassle of trying to figure out when they're open.

Follow up: Decided to try Ike's again, just went with alternate plan, in case they were doing some weird hours again. Cheeseburger was great, homemade potato chips served with ranch dressing for dipping were also very good.
