“Got mugged here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2012

My husband got mugged at Potbelly, someone stole his wallet because the place is so cramped up and the management was very uncooperative. No functional security cameras or any offer of help. Furthermore it's always a hassle getting what you want. It took me three failed sandwiches to get what I had ordered in the first place. Definitely not going back.

“Great place to stop for breakfast!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2012

A friend and I had spent 4 nights in D.C. This place was on the same block as our hotel as it was just around the corner. The sausage and egg on wheat bread sandwich was very good. Good coffee, too.

“Great soup and sandwich”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

Ate there on our first night in DC. One of the few places in the area open on a Sunday night. The soup and sandwich combo was tasty and a good value
