We usually go through the drive-through and order the farmhouse salad, so I can't speak to the rest of the menu. One of our top 5 salad stops.

I go for a quick sandwich on occasion. I like their turkey with avocado. Good food. There was even a live guitar player/singer there once!

very slow relative to other - friendly and still good. Went with the standard Weck. Shakes still one of the best in town.

Don't go if you are in a hurry (unless you do the drive through, which takes precedence over the walk-ins). Other than that, the food is well prepared and freshly made, and the cookies are always good.

Stopped in here to try something new. Jimmy John's type menu with a much more rustic decor. Good prices for a good sandwich. See others have complained about the service, but we were able to get our sandwiches and be sitting down to eat them in less than 5 minutes, Musician playing in the corner. Would stop again.

So I happened to be in the area on business and wanted something different than the typical mcdonalds or wendys lunch. The first thing that caught me off guard was that it had a drive thru.

Potbelly has great sandwiches. I love their spicy pepper mix. I like the fact they offer a "skinny" sandwich.

No manager around as young help were not friendly, not helpful, gave you no reason to return. Very disappointed in the overall feel from what appears to be bored workers.
