Fantastic sandwiches here to say the least. Wide variety of sandwiches built the way you want them built. Hot or cold it doesn't matter they are all good. You can even get a Chocolate Malt milk shake if you wish. Not recommended in the winter, kind of cold for that.

Popped in after a busy day sightseeing. The beef and cheese sandwich was excellent, if however the hot peppers were a little hot for me! The real revelation was the buffalo chicken Mac N Cheese which was awesome!

There are lots of sandwich chains, but Potbelly is one of the better ones. Hot sandwiches are very yummy ... and the milk shakes are killer!

Love that Potbelly is both in Arlington and Alexandria. I discovered the one in Arlington while at a conference and followed the military guys to wherever they were going to eat. Nice choice guys

The sandwiches and heaven and the atmosphere is very casual. The cooks go to a lot of trouble to serve only freshly made items. Yes, this Potbelly is very similar to all the others...but there is a park across the street where you can picnic and take a break from whatever you might be doing.

Just had the grilled chicken and cheddar . Great sandwich. It was kind of expensive, but it comes with the area. I'm next door to this place all week so I'll be eating here again.

I love sandwiches, and I decided to give this place a try. I had the ham and cheese sub, which was pretty tasty. Although their sandwiches are served hot, I did not want my sandwich to be heated. I will definitely return for a sandwich whenever I am in the area.

Potbelly is always good but this time I just stopped in for an Oreo Shake. I would always recommend Potbelly if you're in the mood for a good sandwich and shake

The sandwiches are terrible. The bread is too thick and dry and crumbly and overwhelms the fillings. Jimmy Johns has way better white rolls. Never again.
