“Great alternative to typical fast food”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

The sanwiches at Potbelly his the spot. They have great chips and the sandwiches are made to order. I had youth aged 12-22 and half of them preferred a sandwich there to McDonalds two doors over. It is a healthier and satisfying alternative to fast food.

“Just to grab and go”
Reviewed November 18, 2011

There is a wide choice, and the sandwich is fresh and tasty. The place is not so clean, however also at rush hour in ten minutes you are out. Good the ratio quality of food /price. Once I tryed the roastbeef, but the main flavour was the cheese on top, the second time the meatball, the meat was to dry! To repeat but not everyday, you deserve better life, sometime!

“Great healthy alternative”
Reviewed October 24, 2011

After traveling for a month, I was getting tired of the same takeout options. Found this shop by chance and now seek it out where possible.
Great sandwich combinations and staff are very helpful.
Similar to subway, only more gormet, cheaper, and healthier.

We ate here with our 3 young children during a day of siteseeing (2 blocks or so east of the White house, just off penn. ave. We loved this place,the sandwiches were fun adn toasted, and they make a good malt shake...a homemade feel with subway chain prices. We would go back for sure!!!

Reviewed October 6, 2008

Delicious sandwiches made-to-order. The only thing that could be better is if they always had milk in stock because their PB&J is AWESOME. The tuna one is good too, but not recommended for transit (ie, take away) because of the potential sog factor.
