Not my favorite sandwich place. Overpriced sandwiches. Not a lot of options. I'd rather go to Subway or Jimmy John's/

It's no exaggeration to say that Potbelly Sandwich Works in East Lansing served the best roast beef sandwich I've ever had. My wife and daughter also enjoyed their choices. Potbelly also made an excellent chocolate malt. The staff were efficient and very friendly, and the quiet interior had a nice vintage quality to it --- authentic "vintage," not the kind of artificial attempts at "vintage" atmosphere that you see in a lot of restaurants. The location was ideal, right on the main boulevard of East Lansing, with plenty of shops nearby that cater to Michigan State students, and nice views of the University's old "collegiate Gothic" architecture right across the street. I can't imagine a nicer place to have lunch or a light dinner.

This is a great little sandwich shop right across from the campus of Michigan State University. Very friendly and appears to be staffed mostly by MSU students. I stopped there during Homecoming Week for a quick bite to eat and got the best BLT ever. I had ordered the smaller size and it was so good I came back the next day for a larger one.
They are open seven days a week until 11 p.m. It's about a 10 minute walk from the campus hotel, the Kellogg Center, and a great place for a quick meal there or to go.

A fun place to enjoy the college scene while enjoying tasty sandwiches and salad -- lots of choices and options, good prices, quick service. I don't think they recycle their plastic ware (including plates and bowls) -- I asked and they said they didn't.
