Enjoyed a great fresh sandwich and soup at the Potbelly. No long wait and we were able to enjoy a sunny day in the winter sitting outside, even though there was plenty of seating inside.

Essentially it is a sandwich shop. The way this place is, it is with character. My favorite is actually thier Malt shakes. You get a decent cup with a small cookie on top. All the sandwiches are made on the spot with a plethora of...More

Potbelly's is one of my favorite sandwich shop. I typically get the BIGS with chicken or tuna salad no cheese and toasted on wheat with everything but the hots. The people here are amazing. Very helpful and courteous. If you don't like sandwiches, try the...More
