Popular among the locals here in Seattle. I heard many great things about this place. So I had to try this place. There is a line and it's finally my turn, I've asked the guy who was making my sandwich. He recommended grilled chicken & cheddar. Got the larger one and "a wreck". Got the original and two small soup.... More

Friendly service and the subs were full of meat and toppings. Delicious. Better than any Chicago based Potbelly restaurant.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. Helped us find our way through the process of ordering. The food and drink choices are really good. I recommend the Clubhouse salad.

Loud and friendly staff who seem to like and take pride in their restaurant. It shows nicely. Fed 6 in my family for under $45 and no food was left...Always a good sign. Keep up the nice work.

Thank Mike M
