Relaxed lunch

Don't go if you are in a hurry (unless you do the drive through, which takes precedence over the walk-ins). Other than that, the food is well prepared and freshly made, and the cookies are always good.

Stopped in here to try something new. Jimmy John's type menu with a much more rustic decor. Good prices for a good sandwich. See others have complained about the service, but we were able to get our sandwiches and be sitting down to eat them in less than 5 minutes, Musician playing in the corner. Would stop again. We always... More

So I happened to be in the area on business and wanted something different than the typical mcdonalds or wendys lunch. The first thing that caught me off guard was that it had a drive thru. No matter what time a day, I have the feeling that it would ALWAYS be a long wait time in the drive thru only... More

Potbelly has great sandwiches. I love their spicy pepper mix. I like the fact they offer a "skinny" sandwich.

We love Potbelly, both at Midway Airport and downtown Chicago. Good, fast, reasonably priced sandwiches and salads, but the Glen Ellyn location is slower than a slow sit down restaurant. The drive thru is far worse. Better not have the usual reason for going thru a drive thru. The last three times, at least a few weeks apart each time,... More

No manager around as young help were not friendly, not helpful, gave you no reason to return. Very disappointed in the overall feel from what appears to be bored workers.

A good vegetarian sandwich with a whole wheat option...a rare thing in the Western suburbs. The poor lunchtime musician was ignored by a noisy full house, though.

I only came here because my preferred sandwich place, Subway, was farther away. I got a tasteless roast beef sandwich with mayo, tomatoes, lettuce and onion. How do they take so many ingredients and divest it of flavor? The barbecue chips were like poker chips sprayed with a flavoring. The coleslaw was good but the portion is tiny. This place... More
