“A good place for reasonable eats”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

It's really just a sandwich shop... because "average" sandwich shops are a necessary in a town with a huge working population, Potbelly's locations are always popular and crowded. However, they have worked out a system that gets you through the line quickly, even with special orders. The food won't wow you, but the price won't shock you, either. It's a good choice for the money conscious. They also offer soups and salads....and cookies and ice cream shakes and malts :-)

This restaurant offers a nice variety of menu options. I like the soups in particular. My daughters like the chili.

“This is what a sandwich place should be”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

You get exactly what you ask for, they put a generous amount of meat on their sandwiches (it's not Carnegie Deli, but I don't have a refrigerator at my desk for the leftovers), and they have good sides and unusual soft drinks to go with them. The live music at lunch is a nice touch.

“Great for a quick lunch”

If you like soup and a sandwich and don't want to spend too much time or money on food, Potbelly is the place you want. Try the Loaded Potato Soup

“Best place for a quick lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

Much better sandwich than any of its rivals. The quality meats and cheeses coupled with the fresh toppings and awesome breads make for a great sandwish every time. The salads are terrific too. The beverages and side dishes are overpriced, but other than that Potbelly is a good value.
