Potbelly's sandwiches and subs are fresh and a lot better than Subway, Jimmy John's, or Quiznos. The bread is good...not like the "cardboard" at the other places. A wide selection from which to choose. The staff is friendly and fast. Good for a casual lunch.

I had really good steel cut oatmeal with fresh bananas and walnuts, and my family really enjoyed the breakfast sandwiches. My son said the strawberry-banana smoothie was delicious.

Potbelly's is a great place to purchase a tasty, inexpensive lunch. Most of their sandwich selections are run through a heater/grill before condiments and toppings are added. Heating the ingredients seems to bring out their flavor. The sandwiches are not overloaded with meat, which is all right because that means fewer calories and lower prices. Other businesses charge much more... More

This place looked interesting so my husband and I decided to try it. Loved this place! Very interesting combinations on menu for me and traditional for my hubby. Fresh ingredients on sandwiches and salads. Eclectic decorations but very comfortable and clean.

Me and my mom ate here a couple years ago and the sandwiches are pretty good.Mom and I had to split a sandwich. They are reasonably priced for lunch or dinner.

Stopped by this restuarant for lunch while in Ann Arbor . Had turkey and Swiss on whole wheat toasted bread. This sandwich was very good . The turkey did not taste like processed turkey, more like something cooked at home. Staff was friendly and helpful. Soup was broccoli cheddar, was good tasting and filling.

One of the best grinders you can buy. Along with a neat place to have lunch while people watching in downtown Ann Arbor.

Although on the higher end of the franchise food chain I cant say the service is above average and the food is decent for the price point. This is a perfect spot for a casual catch up with friends lunch or an informal business lunch as the dining area is fairly cozy and good for intimate conversation.

Very friendly staff, decent-sized menu and options. A couple unique items. Very tasty and well-enjoyed! Decent prices and sizes of portions. Phone chargers! Great upper-level seating--some tables have fun stuff in the tabletop, for example music notation!

Thank davosseaworth
