Decent lunch stop.
Potbelly= Quiznos with dimmer lighting and americana on the walls.
Highly Recommend: Ice Cream Sandwich. The one item that makes Potbelly standout from the myriad other sandwich places skirts its toasted formula.
They take two giant cookies (your choice of chocolate chip or oatmeal) and then softly mash a generous serving of ice cream in between. The result is a substantial dessert that has truly earned its entry into the sandwich club. Upon serving, the sandwich is over an inch thick. Upon finishing, you may want a nap.
Just about any place in D.C. can serve an okay sandwich and, sure, some places, like Potbelly, toast their bread and melt their cheese, which tastes fine. Whether you like ice cream, cookies, both, or neither, this sandwich will satisfy your sweet tooth and desire to eat with your hands. Follow your sandwich up with another sandwich and go for Potbelly's Ice Cream Sandwich. Not toasted. Terrific.
