Potbelly Sandwich Works

17 S High Street Columbus OH (614) 224-1976

It could have been either evolution or intelligent design that morphed a small antique store into a chain of unique sandwich shops, but it doesn’t really matter. What matters is that everything at Potbelly is crazy cheap and ridiculously good. The freshly toasted sandwiches are over-full of thinly sliced meats, handmade tuna and chicken salads, and/or meatballs. Each sandwich is good for about a dozen napkins, ‘cause the delicious dressings, hot pepper juice, mayo, mustard and whatnot are bound and determined to make it to the elbow. One of their sandwiches barely has room for sauce, since it has salami, roast beef, turkey, ham and Swiss taking up most of the room. It’s A Wreck ($4.47).
