I like Potbellys... from the fun menus on the wall to the frequent musician over the lunch hour, Potbellys is a good experience. They also have excellent sandwiches and I know, from personal experience, that getting their food catered will guarantee a great business meeting....More

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!
