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.

Really good subs and the selection of toppings is pretty good. Everything is fresh and they are pretty fast at getting the food out. Prices are just okay. The franchise potato chips aren't that awesome, but they are edible.

Your basic deli style place. The prices are okay for region. The sandwiches are serviceable but they won't bowl you over.

Fantastic sandwiches that put other sandwich stops to shame, deliciously fresh and a great selection of add ons. Their meatball sub and the Wreck are truly fantastic and must order along with their milkshakes. They offer speedy service always with a smile!

Potbelly Sandwich works was delicious and the perfect way to cap a hot afternoon in Washington DC. The environment was quaint in such a large and bustling city and allowed us to take a break from the crazy day we had walking around. The menu...More

I have eaten at this fabulous Sandwich shop for lunch everyday I have been here. We don't have any Potbelly's on the West Coast and I sure am going to miss them, with the delicious roasted bell peppers and perfectly toasted bread

Not a lot of seating available, but sandwiches were very good, loved that they toasted the roll. Not a lot of meat or cheese on the Italian.
