I thought the sandwiches were good. They were smaller than other places for the price. I did go during an off time so maybe I didn't catch things at their best. I did go multiple times so I must have liked something.

After I got settled into my room at the Extended Stay America, I was really hungry, especially after the long drive through the dense fog, wind, heavy periodic rain, and cold from NC to Reston. Started walking about to see what's in the area -- no recommendations from anyone, unfortunately. Passed up Chik-Fil-A, Carrabas, Chipotle, and both the Target and... More

I have seen these all over the US but had not eaten at one. My team chose this for lunch. The sandwich and soup was okay. The sandwich was made to order and the soup was hot but there was nothing outstanding about it. The best thing about this location was the live music during lunch.

Poor choice of vegetables, they're limited to sad lettuce, tomatoes and onions. Couple time we came they were out of tomatoes. Ingredients are tasteless, pretty much your average deli cuts. Overall sandwich quality is mediocre. There are much better options in Reston town center.

I went here with my friend for lunch today, and we not only enjoyed good sandwiches, a lovely outdoor view, and yummy cookies, we also got surprisingly friendly and kind service! I recommend this location.

Our group ordered everything from chicken salad, meatball sandwich, Mediterranean and "Wreck" sandwiches and all were excellent. If you order a shake, get ready for a big shout out as the order is placed with the master shake maker. Everyone working seemed to be having a great time so not only was food excellent but atmosphere took an everyday lunch... More

In town visiting family and stopped by for a quick lunch. They did not disappoint. Our family has eaten here often but this was our first time. It was a little hard to read all the menu and stand in line, we allowed a few to go in front of us, but if you have been here you already have... More

Potbelly offers a variety of sandwiches, breakfast, fresh baked cookies, soups, chili, salads, a plethora of sides and a giant pickle if you want one. They are very efficient with production and get the food out fast. Great place for an inexpensive lunch, dinner, or snack. I have eaten their sandwiches for years, not often but I recommend the Wreck,... More

This was our first experience of Potbelly. It was a wonderful experience we didn't know what kind of sandwiches to get or drink - we did ask for a warm coffee but we were introduced to a smoothie café - this was delicious. The sandwich was great and the customer service was superb. Keep up the good we'll be back.

The subs here and very tasty - good bread, and quality fillings. Some of my favorites are the Wreck and the meatball sub. The Original size is enough for me, but get a "Big" if you've got a bigger appetite. The hand-dipped shakes are delicious!
