This is a chain. My 1st time at a Potbelly and it was a great experience. The Crescendo musicians (from ISU) were playing live music. I enjoyed the Uptown salad and a skinny TKY on flat bread...yum. They do not serve coffee. They do have a coffee milkshake though. It was a cold rainy night and I didn't think a... More

Great sandwiches. Service is quick & everyone is always friendly. Lots of spaces to sit, including outside when the weather allows. I've seen the place incredibly busy during certain days like football games but everywhere is like that in town. There is also live music at times.

The sandwiches are very good, but it is pretty small for what you pay for. Nice customer service and location.

Every time I eat here, the sandwiches are delicious. Absolutely destroys Subway with flavor, and a great variety of different sides that pair very well with your food. Turkey bacon cheese wrap is a favorite along with a hot ham n cheese on completely awesome toasted bread. Never had a bad meal and I have eaten here well over 50... More

I get the same thing every time I come-veggie on wheat. The hot peppers are hot but oh so good. Cheap, fast, and tasty...what's not to like?

Went to Potbelly on a whim. Turned out to be really good. Parking is not the easiest but you do get fast service. I had the BBQ Pulled pork topped with coleslaw. Delicious. Prices are typical college town prices. Nice selection to chose from and plenty of seating both inside and outside. Definitely worth it!

Potbelly definitely gets you in and out very quickly, so if you're short on time, this is a good place to try. That said, the sandwiches were average in our opinion. I had the turkey and my wife had the chicken salad, and we both thought they were OK but nothing special.

good sandwich shop-- chips didn't have much of a variety. Has lots of sauces available. More expensive than Jimmy Johns
