If you've been to a Potbelly before, this one will feel pretty much the same, However, if you are staying at the Hilton Garden Inn, it provides a good lunch option and much better than their hotel food. The subs were of decent quality but the service could have been quicker and more efficient on a Sunday late afternoon with... More

We've stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn a lot lately and Potbelly Sandwich Works offers a convenient stop for picking up sandwiches that we can munch on in our rooms. The service is friendly and the sandwiches are tasty and healthy without a lot of unnecessary goop or calories.

How can you make a bad sandwich - just order on here to find out. One must begin with good bread - they don't have it here.

Great lunch subs with many choices for any personal likes. Prefer this to most fast delivery type lunch experiences. Cookie at the end is a must

We ate here for simple deli food. Caution, they toast everything which we didn't know. They gladly remade my daughters sandwich. The chili was hearty and good. Also recommend the oatmeal chocolate chip cookies (very good).

I live 3 blocks from Potbelly and have lunch here at least once a month. Food is reliably good and so is the value. It is a fast food type restaurant.

On a scale somewhere above Subway and below Jimmy Johns and Quiznos. Part self serve, part cafeteria line. Reasonably priced.

Tucked along a row of restaurants along Elm Street, this Potbelly sees a lot of 'local lunch traffic' - the office workers surrounding the Bethesda metro station flood this typical sandwich shop from 11:30 - 2pm. Stopped in around 1, and had a Big wreck (very filling). No sweet tea options. :-( So I grabbed a Dr. Pepper from the... More
