Such a great relaxing place to unwind after day of Touring. Foods great, great prices. Most of all, not pushed thru to eat. You can sit & relax a little. Low stress environment. Did I say food was great?

I have bee to a Potbelly Sandwich Shop before, they are highly recommended. They serve great sandwiches at decent prices. On this occasion, I had a Chili Bowl, which was great tasting and set me up for the rest of the afternoon. Good food, good eats,

Stopped here because my husband and I were starving and wanted a light lunch. I got the uptown salad which was really good with the potbelly vinaigrette. Very filling and full of flavor. They don't skimp on the ingredients either! My husband got the pizza sandwich and he really enjoyed it. I would definitively go back.

Went here for lunch. Had the wreck and it was delicious. The soup was ok but for sure we will go back again for the sandwich. Quick friendly service. Don't let a long line discourage you. It's worth the little wait.

I ate here for breakfast--- and lunch and dinner at the Potbelly on M street between 21 and 22nd street NW last week. I was in town several days, and it was nice to have healthy options.. (but the second Potbelly I can't find on trip advisor). Great menu, fast service, good prices, quality food. Cute ambiance and it's not... More

Potbelly is a great, quick, sandwich shop in DC. Their meatball sandwich is fantastic: you cannot order it with mozzarella-they only have provolone. So we skipped the cheese completely and it was still delicious! Their pulled pork is great--a little spicy and their Italian hero was also very good. You cannot go wrong eating here. Fresh food, quick service! You... More

This is a great place for lunch! The sandwiches are served on really good bread. I had the chicken and cheddar with sliced avocado. It was so good!!!

Being from California, I had never heard of Potbelly Sandwich Shops. However, while visiting DC with three teenage grandchildren I soon found that they're ubiquitous in our nation's capital. It seemed that whenever we were hungry at lunch time, another Potbelly was nearby. It's good, it's fast and it's friendly. A great place to grab a quick lunch while touring... More

Walked past a lot of Potbelly's before popping in here to give it a try. Oh my god, once I did, I was addicted! I just couldn't stop eating the Wreck sandwich, it was so nice. I ate here a number of times while I was in Washington, I even made an internet order to pick up. They were late... More

Able to mix and match salad items, fresh light lemonade. They toasted my husbands sandwich without asking him so he requested it to be changed and they did it at once.
