The sandwiches and heaven and the atmosphere is very casual. The cooks go to a lot of trouble to serve only freshly made items. Yes, this Potbelly is very similar to all the others...but there is a park across the street where you can picnic and take a break from whatever you might be doing.

Just had the grilled chicken and cheddar . Great sandwich. It was kind of expensive, but it comes with the area. I'm next door to this place all week so I'll be eating here again.

I love sandwiches, and I decided to give this place a try. I had the ham and cheese sub, which was pretty tasty. Although their sandwiches are served hot, I did not want my sandwich to be heated. I will definitely return for a sandwich whenever I am in the area.

Potbelly is always good but this time I just stopped in for an Oreo Shake. I would always recommend Potbelly if you're in the mood for a good sandwich and shake

The sandwiches are terrible. The bread is too thick and dry and crumbly and overwhelms the fillings. Jimmy Johns has way better white rolls. Never again.

Good subs, chili and fast service -- not busy at night and open till 9pm. Nothing special except what you'd come to expect from Potbelly's.

We met my brother for lunch. The wreck sandwich is the one. It was delicious. The regular size should be more than adequate for a typical lunch break. They also had live music, which is a nice touch for a Wednesday afternoon. For me and my wife, good lunch for 18 bucks

The singers are sometimes not that great and can be annoying if you are trying to relax and talk, but...everyone needs a chance to be discovered. Lines at lunch are long but move really fast--worth getting in line. All made to order sandwiches-- they don't get upset with substitutions and the bread is great.. They add the veggies AFTER toasting... More
