Located at downtown West Lafayette, great for a quick lunch. The only inconvinience is that the tables are a bit dirty.

Cute little restaurant and the sandwiches are pretty delicious. Was there twice during a visit to Purdue. Their rolls are toasted and that adds a little something extra to the subs. Really liked the Pizza sandwich, really liked it. Oh, you should ask for a little container of their hot peppers. It's actually a mix of peppers, pickled celery and... More

The franchise owner is always there. It's a friendly place where you order your sandwich or salad, move quickly through the line, and rest at a table with a bookcase nearby, if you want to read. Parking might be a bit of a problem when Purdue is in session, but there is a parking lot across the street. It is... More

We went here for lunch and something light. We had 3 different salads in clear plastic containers which could have been taken elsewhere. The salads were excellent. Surprisingly they don't serve tea or coffee although they have hot soup.

Great for a quick sandwich while at Purdue. Only drawback is the counter service does not flow smoothly because of where the entrance is located and where you place your order and pay for your meal. The service was quick and the food we ordered was good and hot.

Be careful about going on busy days or later in the evening as they run out of inventory for some of their items specifically avocado. Being the only sandwich shop that has avocado, it was a real downer when they didn't have it. Otherwise, prices are fair and toasted sandwiches are exceptional. Bread is not chewy and toppings are fresh... More

I enjoyed the grilled chicken and cheddar sandwich, on the multi-grain bread. Chips, salads, and soups are also options. They serve breakfast as well. The service was friendly and quick. It was also fairly busy.

Great place for lunch. Good sandwiches, the "Wreck" is my favorite. Finish it off with a melt in your mouth chocolate chip cookie!

Sandwich was tasty, soup was above average but great when paired with soup. Would recommend this and other Potbelly locations.
