Can always count on something good.

My favorites at Potbelly are the chick pea veggie salad and recently I had the chicken noodle soup. The salad is always fresh and crisp, and I usually ask for sweet and hot peppers added. The chicken noodle soup was just right. I usually take out from Potbelly and always enjoy what I get.

After being highly recommended by staff in the hospital....this place became my favorite spot while my husband was in HUP. In the morning the steel cut oatmeal with bananas and walnut was my favorite. And lunch was always amazing. The chicken salad is amazing. Every time we go back this will definitely be our go to place!

Stopped by twice and ordered 2 different sandwiches. The ham and cheese and Mediterranean chicken. Nothing special. I've heard the salads and milkshakes are good but did not order that. I would not get sandwiches from here again.

Enjoyed sandwiches and milk shakes after medical appointments at HUP. Also enjoyed some milkshakes that my daughter brought me while I was a patient at the hospital a few week earlier! The place is always packed, but the lines move quickly. There's a patio with tables & chairs just outside that's great on nice weather days. There's seating inside, but... More

This is a great place for an above-average sandwich. Anytime I see them in the airport, I eat there. They don't gouge you at all, and the sandwiches are great.

We visited there yesterday while at the hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, just across the street. For a small place, the service was very good considering how many people were there from the hospital, both staff and visitors. The food was great and the prices were moderate. I think it is a lot better than the hospital cafeteria if... More

Upon first glance there was a long line of people waiting inside Potbelly. Since I am not patient enough to wait, I suggested we go somewhere else, however, my friend said, "oh, it's always like that". We went inside and waited on the line that moved rather quickly. A server was at the line taking our order and answering questions... More

Delicious food, affordable yet decent prices, the vibe is magnificent, the food is very healthy, and it was prepared quickly. Honestly great place. Plus it's a perfect getaway if your in the hospital (located across the street).

A sandwich shop that is adequate, nothing outstanding (depends on your taste) but if you are a patient or family staying at the Penn Towers and you do not want to walk or take a bus or taxi it is OK and if the weather is inclement it is better than OK it is almost a G-d send.
