The place was difficult to set, and be comfortable for conversation with friends. We sat on stools and ate at the counter - seemed very crowded with canisters and pastry food items.

Sandwiches were ok. Bathrooms were a cesspool of germs and we're terribly maintaines. Chili was possibly not chili but rather ketchup and beans. Highly not recommended

I’ve been to a couple different PotBellys. As always they rise above and produce good customer service and the food is wonderful. Facilities were clean, organized, and inviting. Check them out!

Decided to try this because of the unique name and it was close to my hotel. This is not your typical submarine sandwich shop. It has some unique items on the menu and all of the food is fresh. Employees were not all that friendly...More

We stopped at Potbelly for lunch. The line was long and seating was limited. The sandwiches were very good, but a little pricey. Only bottled drinks were available.

They make a really good sandwich. We had the turkey sandwiches and it was delicious. It was pretty crowded, but we were lucky to find a table. They do wonderful things to the humble sandwich.

The staff was very friendly and helpful to a pair of out-of-towners who have never eaten at Potbelly's before. The sandwiches were delicious and even their sides were great! The price was well within our range and a great place for a quick bite!

I had the grilled chicken salad and my husband had a turkey sandwich. They were both very good. My salad was big! Got the Potbelly signature dressing, I would recommend it. He also ate here for breakfast the next morning. Inside and outside covered dining.
