We stopped in here and had breakfast sandwiches here on our flight out of Dulles. Egg and ham was the favorite!

Best place in airport to eat cheap and good. Large pickles for $1 and steel cut oatmeal for $2.60. You can't even buy a candy bar for that in the airport. I eat there often as a flight attendant.

Probably the best value for quantity in the airport, but slow and not as good to the taste. They're also one of the last to open in the morning, so they get slammed immediately.

Going six hours of having no good food/snacks and facing at least another three hours sans food is never a good idea for me. So while on a two-hour layover, I decided to look for a good place that would give my body proper nutrition. I was this.close to getting some Dunkin' Donuts (I always get excited when I am... More

I was looking for a quick bite at the airport before my flight so I stopped into Potbellies. I ordered a big roast beef sandwhich with provalone cheese and a chocolate shake. The sandwhich came toasted. Flavor was OK but nothing I would order again. The chocolate shake was one of the worst I've ever had. It was watery and... More

The sign said fresh and less than 8 minutes through the line. It took about 12-15 mon, but the food is definitely made to order and worth the wait. Hit the spot before getting in the plane.

I grabbed a hot sandwich to go from Potbelly on my way out of Dulles on my way to my hotel near by. Very friendly staff too. I was pleasantly surprised at just how good that sandwich was, and an excellent value. Before my flight out a few days later, I had another sandwich at Potbelly which was just as... More

What do you need after getting off a flight with crap food. I'll tell you what you need, you need to go here to restore your faith in food. Saw a queue outside so figured that they must be doing something right. And boy are they. Just thinking bout the sandwich I had here 2 weeks ago is making me... More

This review is for the Concourse D location at Dulles Airport. You need to be flying to eat here. I ended up getting a milkshake from this location. This Chicago sandwich chain is also very popular in the Northern Virginia Area. The milkshake was very good, it was chocolaty but not overpowering. Prices were as expected for an airport location....

I had some free time in between my flights last week. It was about noon, and this Potbelly was close to my connecting flight's gate. So I stopped in and enjoyed the Italian sandwich that was quickly prepared. The staff were friendly and service was quick. The prices were reasonable for an airport quick serve. Seating was a bit tight... More
