My office orders Potbellys maybe every other month. I always get the Mediteranian and ive always enjoyed it. Its never wowing but still good and consistent. Their cookies are very very good as well as their pickles. Looking forward to trying their salads soon.

Great service and food! Always clean inside. Try to get there early in the afternoon if you can. Sometimes lines can be as long as 15 minutes long. I visit Potbelly's once a week!
