We were looking for a place to grab a salad and sub. Even though it was a few minutes to closing time, they were as friendly as they could be. Having never been to a Potbelly, we had lots of questions. I had the Farm...More

I went there expecting to only find sandwiches. I had the Farmer's Salad. It was so good, I returned the next day to get it again!

This place is a well oiled machine. Between their order online service and in-store lines, this place can look super crowded and intimidating at lunch hour. The staff works with a sense of urgency to keep the line moving. Give it a try and you'll...More

I eat in several of these deli's . Food is cheap and outstanding. On a cold day this is like an oasis. Got to try their soup and chili.

Despite the 'sandwich' in the middle of the name, Potbelly's also sells great salads. When I went in at lunchtime on a couple of days ago, they also had live guitar music, which was a really pleasant surprise. That said, when I went back for...More

Potbelly on E Wacker is in the "belly" of the building, but easy enough to find. An employee takes you order while in line, so it's ready fairly quickly. We don't have a Potbelly where we live, so we enjoyed the change of pace. For...More
