I’m a fan of potbelly and this location is just as good as any. They’re obviously unhealthy, but the milkshakes are awesome.

Wasnt sure what to expect, thought it was a sandwich place. Surprised that it only had sub rolls or flats. Chicken salad was great, as was the soup. The ordering process is confusing and it was uncomfortable having to talk over the huge high counter.

Potbelly is Potbelly ... they are the same everywhere. I think they have a decent product at a decent price. Nothing spectacular, but in a pinch, it is OK, especially for kids.

Five of us including our 11 year old grandson stopped at Potbelly (my first time) for a quick lunch before seeing "Rogue 1" at the movie theatre across the street. The sandwiches were very quickly prepared and very tasty. It was very busy and we...More
