Family went for lunch there several times in a week. Meatball sandwich and Italian sandwich were really GOOD! Their salad with their famous salad dressing is really good. Great meal for lunch and busy most of the time HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

The sandwiches are literally bite size...an absolute ripoff. The salads are pretty good size though. It's better to use the app and order ahead...inside they are friendy but a mess. Menu is hard to read so unless you are a person who always knows what...More

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 one of my favorite lunch shops when I'm shopping at Fairfax Corner. During my most recent visit I again tried the mediterranean vegetarian sandwich on whole wheat and wasn't disappointed. I like that you can choose to order the original, the smaller size...More

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.
