Located next door to our office, its very convenient to drop by and pick up one of their several salads which seem very popular. I just wish they had some more choices of dressings. can be long lines sometimes but moves very quickly.

Good sandwiches, but not nearly enough meat. Shame they didn't keep the pastrami one on the menu, that was their best option.

I was in the Reston Town Center to do a little shopping and prior to an evening meeting. I stopped in PB and wasn't disappointed. Hot sandwich, great service...always hits the spot!

Although I didn't eat in the restaurant, I would come back because of the friendly and helpful service I received. I placed an order for a box of sandwiches and a salad with a days notice. It was ready on time, everything was correct and everyone enjoyed. Glad to have a place like this close by!

I stop here while I was on business travel. I got the hammie and tried the soup of the day which was chicken noodle. It was really good so I decided to come back try the chili the next day. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Great place and I'll try it again next time I'm in town.

Don't let the long line discourage you when u get in door. It moves quickly and it's worth the 5-10 minute wait. They got a system that moves you along. Sandwiches and salads primarily. Inexpensive and plenty to eat. Food is always fresh. Servers behind counter know how to move things along. Sometime three deep they coordinate and get the... More

Tried it for the first time. Although there was a big crowd for lunch, the service was quick and there were several open booths and tables. The sandwiches really are very average. We ordered ones with Swiss and they forgot to add it. Firehouse Subs is superior.

I was able to visit this location while on business in Reston. I had time to travel from a nearby hotel and eat lunch and return in time for my meeting to continue. Parking is the only issue to be aware of at lunchtime and on busy days. Parking is always an issue anywhere though in Northern Virginia and DC.... More
