Good value, quick and polite service. GOOD SANDWICH AND SALADS. Spacious and quiet if you need it. If my kids were still small, I would take them

I liked the cheerful attitudes behind the counter at the Union Station store. The bathrooms are cleaned every two hours and a welcome relief from the typical train station atmosphere. Lots of photos and cool wooden cabinets. Family friendly with diaper changing equipment easy to get to and to use inside both bathrooms.

The food is good. Sandwiches are filling, with a modest amount of whatever cold cut you ask for, plus you can get them toasted and with soup or salad for a reasonable price. The milkshakes are fabulous! And, if you like old fashioned dill pickles you can purchase a huge one for a buck. What's not to like?

Seating is at round wire mesh tables and works well for a quick sit down or an informal meeting of friends.

I give it a 4.5 out of 5 overall.

Visitors seem to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the Potbelly sandwich chain. Stand shoulder to shoulder with locals, and be prepared to order up when you get to the counter, if not before (keep an eye on the counter help, who often call out to ask your order as you're approaching). Don't goof and request your toppings before your sandwich is warmed and ready. This popular shop uses hot peppers, so be prepared for a spicy bite, or request the peppers on the side. Shakes and cookies are also available for those with a sweet tooth.

We loved it - the choice of sandwiches, fillings and sauces and drinks. It's an upmarket Subway in many ways, but classier than the latter in every respect. We were so impressed we kept going back during our visit.

I say not always consistent based on the fact I would eat there at least once a week, more like twice to sometimes three times. I would generally order the same thing, and 50% of the time the order would get messed up, from the bread to the cheese to the meat, you name it. It was close and fast and those were important factors to me. The line can get very long very fast in this location, so get there early.
