I was in Clemson to pack up daughter for the end of school year. Pot Belly Deli was on the list of favorites. Big long line to get a warm Turkey Rueben 🤷‍♂️. Nothing special

4 of us went and ordered bacon egg and cheese sandwiches. We places our order at 11:40 and they told us they lost our ticket when we went to ask about our order. Finally got our food at 12:20 and it was cold and we...received no apologies. They acted like it was our fault for them losing our ticket and for frustrated when we asked where our food was. Having to take our food home to heat it up.... disappointed.More

Great sandwiches served by super-nice people. Great coffees, too. I had the best Reuben I have ever had outside of NYC.

Great food and fast service make this a quick drop in place for breakfast or lunch. There is ample seating indoors and some outdoor seating. The menu has many excellent choices. We stop here whenever we visit Clemson.

This place is so awesome for breakfast, lunch or tailgate food. So this is a local classic. Not to be confused with the Potbelly chain. (Small world, I lived 1/2 q block away and often went to the original Potbelly's in Chicago of the chain...version.) A+ for Sure Go TigersMore

I used to go here a lot for a favorite sandwich, the Cherisse.. Last fall, I swung by and picked up a Cherisse sandwich to go, and got the dressing on the side. It took me 15 minutes to get home, and the sandwich was...all soggy (it didn't seem like it had been properly grilled to begin with, as the bread was barely toasted). It also seemed like there was no cheese in the sandwich.... I chalked that bad experience up to this being a to go order. I didn't go back until last week when I ordered my old favorite sandwich. I always get my dressing on the side. The sandwich was even worse than the last time. The bread was anemic=not grilled at all. There was no cheese, a lot of saurkraut, and almost no meat. The dressing had no flavor (this dressing used to be their specialty). I won't be back.More

Hi, my name is Geoffrey Rauch, the owner of The Pot Belly Deli. I have had a couple of kitchen managers in the last six months that have been a disappointment. We now have a new one that is doing a fantastic job. If you...More

I have been going to this place for 16 years. Spent way to much money here as a student and make a point to get back every time I’m in town. The grilled blueberry muffin (or any other muffin) is an absolute must. Breakfast sandwiches...are my go-to.More

Good breakfast spot. I had a breakfast burrito, which was delicious. The bagels look amazing. I went on a Sunday morning, and the place was packed with students. Definitely a popular spot. The line moves fast though and there were plenty of empty tables. The...staff is friendly, and the prices are reasonable.More

Small local deli. Limited parking. Indoor seating and take out. Specials and list of deli sandwhiches. Had Ruben nothing special. Greek pasta salad average. Expensive for what you get. Service friendly. Can get crowed at lunch time.
