We had the Italian, the Mediterranean, and the pizza sandwich. Everything was delicious. At first the line seemed long but it went very quickly. The bread is amazing and the ingredients are fresh.

On a chilly afternoon, what a treat their hot sandwiches were. Teenager love it, and they make off menu sandwiches.. just ask!

Stayed at the Mandarin and thankfully Potbelly was within walking distance. I just wish they stayed open through the dinner hours.
