The Potbelly Sandwich shop on Connecticut Avenue is not receiving this rating because of the quality of the food it serves. The food at all Potbelly is delicious. The poor rating given is due to the service I receive every time I go into this restaurant. The servers are slow, even during lunchtime, they have full conversations with each other... More

Potbelly provides a great fast option for on the go diners. Offering low calorie fair as well as filling sandwiches it is a great alternative to Subway or some other chain. I recommend the Italian or the Chicken Cheddar - both are very good.

Great place. We stopped in for lunch and found the staff very helpful in picking what we wanted. Sandwiches were great and the price was right. The quality of the food is head and shoulders above Subway. It's not even a fair comparison. Great location for lunch.

We enjoy eating at Pot Belly. The sandwiches are filling. I usually order the Mediterranean sandwich. Service is good and the restaurant was clean.

We're used to Subway for a fast food sandwich. Our first trip to Potbelly's was very good. The servers were very pleasant and the food was much better than Subway as my Mushroom Melt was perfectly seasoned. We ate at the Potbelly's at GWU
