Pricey for the Taste

The food was commendable but in my opinion a little pricey for what I received. The milk shakes are EXCELLENT!

Our family of four ventured into Potbelly Sandwich Works on the recommendation of the hotel concierge at Embassy Suites, Alexandria. We went during lunch and it was fairly crowded. Getting through the queue was no problem, but ordering was challenging. A nice gentleman greeted us while we were in line and took our order with an iPad-like device. He knew... More

On a recent business trip to Alexandria, I looked for a place to eat that was close to my hotel. Potbelly sounded interesting, so off I went. I chose a Mediterranean sandwich and a bowl of soup. The sandwich was very good, with a nice balance of flavours and everything tasting very fresh. The soup was thick and also very... More

Ate here three times during a work conference. Staff was friendly and moved through the large line quickly. The first day, one of the sandwiches was made incorrectly. Another staff member quickly remedied the situation.

The food, the service, the setting and especially the price, was fantastic. I had "the wreck" and it was excellent. The chips were great and arguably cheap. And the whole family loved the massive pickle.

My son and I hadn't had lunch after checking into our hotel on King Street. We walked over to the Potbelly Sandwich Works. I had a skinny turkey and cup of chili. The sandwich was toasted and very good. The Chili was also very good. I'd recommend both. It was snowing outside and the wind was blowing and it was... More

By far my favorite meal at the Potbelly is breakfast. Usually it's the egg and cheese sandwich with jalapeno peppers. I think I've been to most of the sites in D.C. at one time or the other, all have been good. But the Crystal City Mall is the one I hit the most. One Metro stop up from Reagan, so... More

We were starving after touring the DC area and this place was recommended to us and it was great. We loved the sandwiches. I'm not a fan of spicy and the peppers that come on the sandwiches were too spicy for me. The next time I made sure to say no to them. We actually ate here twice during our... More

Nothing especially original about the food, but it was good. A good place for lunch without taking much time. Local office workers were there, so it must be consistently okay or they wouldn't be there.
