Something for everyone and my kids found a couple that seemed great to them. Bacon had a little too much pepper but the ingredients were fresh and were fantastic. Two sandwiches eaten by two kids - That is a winner.

I like Potbelly. A fast, made to order hot sandwich is a fine meal. Lots of choices, and there are salads too, if you like. This particular Potbelly wasn't crowded the day I came, and service was prompt. I'd be happier if they had a...More

Comparable to a Quizno's with nice heated sandwiches. One of only a few restaurants in the area that remain open on weekends.

If you are in DC on business you need to eat a sandwich at Potbelly. The sandwiches are good ... not great... but good. I never had a bad experience here and they are everywhere. Expect long lines during lunch and limited seating.

We stumbled on this place while visiting the area and looking for something we didn't have in Charlotte and were very pleased with it! We were also excited to come back to Charlotte and find out were getting one of our own!
