Potbelly Sandwich Works is a medium-sized sandwich chain which serves toasted sandwiches, salads, soups, and desserts. Think of it like a smaller Subway, but with more personality.They offer a number of different sandwiches, with a pleasant but not overwhelming level off customization. I decided to go with one of their “skinny” sandwiches (about 1/3 less bread), the mushroom melt.
The mushroom melt comes with mushrooms and provolone, swiss, and american cheeses. It was simple, but pretty tasty. Potbelly offers a number of toppings, including lettuce, tomato, onions, etc. as well as mustard, mayo, and other sauces. If I were to order it again I might add onions or hot peppers to give it more variety, but as it stood the sandwich was quite satisfying. It also wasn’t too expensive. Most sandwiches are between $4.00-$5.50, and even with the drink my meal was under six dollars. I’d definitely recommend Potbelly for your next sandwich lunch. It may not have to variety of Subway or Quiznos, but it more than makes up for it with its charming atmosphere.
