I used to love Potbelly, but they've lost their touch. It's just boring in a town that has so much amazing food stuff going on. Since it's now owned by Sears, I can't support it.

Pros: None Anymore

Cons: Lost Its Luster

If you're in Chicago, you have to have a potbelly. The food did not dissapoint. Very reasonable prices. There is also lunch-time entertainment by local musicians which is a very nice way to spend your lunch hour.

There sandwiches are made to order fresh, there ice cream sanwiches are also made fresh...they take a large scoop of vanilla ice cream and sanwich it between two huge cookies! It was so rich and so huge, that I could only have 3 bites.

The only negative thing I will say about this place is that they do get crowded and as such, you dont place your order at the window (they way you would expect) but you sometimes have to yell your order to a person who may be 7 feet away from you. I did not know this and they ended up yelling directly at me to place my order which I thought was rude.

PROS: Great sanwiches!
CONS: You have to yell to place your order & you may get yelled at!

In Short
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…
