Better than Most Fast Food Options. I'll admit, a huge reason why I'll opt for Potbelly's over Burger King or McDonald's is their milkshakes. They're really good, come in flavors other than generic chocolate or vanilla, and they come with a cute little cookie on the straw! And other than their milkshakes, I like getting a freshly-made, freshly-toasted sandwich with ingredients that don't taste like their 5 days old. So even among the bounty of fast food options in the Chinatown area, Potbelly's is high on my list.
Unbelievably good sandwiches in multiple locations.
Potbelly is called this for a reason. Although its sandwiches are crispy, fresh, made-to-order, and excellent, if you're watching you weight, be careful what you order.
If you don't care about what you're eating, than go nuts. The PJ&J sandwich is freaking fantastic, as is the turkey. Load it up with all the toppings possible and you've got yourself a really tasty lunch or dinner.
If you are looking out for you waistline, you can still eat here, but your options are limited. Start by ordering the sandwich "skinny," which means less bread, and try to stick to something on the light menu, such as the popular TKY. Hold the cheese and the mayo.
Potbelly also offers a rotation of different soups and delicious milkshakes topped with a cookie.
Lines can get very long for the lunch crowd, but it moves quickly. However, if you want to avoid that altogether, you can call ahead and order your sandwich via phone.
Antique-style cafe satisfies that turkey-and-Swiss fix with warm, made-to-order sandwiches..
The owners of a Chicago antique shop decided to start serving sandwiches to their customers in 1977--and it ended up taking over the business. As the restaurant expanded, natural woods and antique fixtures were used to re-create the signature, old-time country store look at every location. The warm, fresh-roll sandwiches share this classic character--from roast beef and provolone to the Wreck (salami, roast beef, turkey, ham and Swiss). Malts, shakes, root beer floats and homemade ice cream sandwiches complete the throwback.
