This was my first time visiting and it's the best sandwich shop I've been to! I ordered a ham & Swiss, strawberry banana smoothie, and a small chilli; and everything was AMAZING! I will be back.

By far the preferred Potbelly shop in the Milwaukee area. They have all the same goods as a normal Potbelly's except this particular shop gives extraordinary service! One of my hands down favorite is the chicken pot pie soup! To die for! It's so good. I always ask for extra crunchy breading crust stuff they put in it. It's absolutely perfect for this time of year. Something hot to warm up the soul.
This place like many Potbelly's also has music on occasion. Besides the warm atmosphere, great service and high vaulted ceilings, being located on the East side of MKE this location is absolutely perfect. Good stuff going on here!
If I'm ever in the need for a quick bite to eat that's still excellent quality and tasty as can be Potbelly's is my go to!

I'm not giving them 5 stars because of the food-because lets be honest, it's a sandwich chain shop that'll have the same exact food wherever you go. I'm giving them 5 stars for fantastic customer service. It's fast even during the lunch rush and the workers are friendly and attentive.
Here's a little anecdote for ya: I stopped in for a coffee shake and joked that they only gave me one cookie. So the cashier sent me away with a little baggy of the cookies to enjoy. I'll definitely keep stopping by for my Potbelly fix :)

The first time I had Potbelly I was in highschool.
The second time I had Potbelly, I was at this location.
It's better than I remembered? My initial takeaway wasn't super great, but maybe they've changed their game. Maybe I'm just older and appreciate the little things, like toasting, more that I did when I was a 16 year old punk. Maybe I don't mind paying for things like bacon to add deliciousness to everything. Maybe my life is a lie. Anyway, the sandwich was good. It's easier to find now that the scaffolding has been removed. This is right across the street from Qdoba on Prospect. Now if anyone can find the 14 years than have passed since my first visit, I'll be here. Waiting.

I don't know what you weirdos expect out of a national sandwich chain, but personally, I don't expect much. I'm pretty liberal when it comes to doling out 5 stars, because for me, it's all about places delivering what you'd expect.
This place goes above and far beyond what you'd expect out of any of the national sandwich chains. The people at this location are always super cool and conversational; I honestly feel like these guys are legitimately interested in how my day is going and they always call me by name - and that's a characteristic difficult to find in any business. The place is clean and the decor is pretty rad I guess.
But about the food.... I COULD EAT A BIG WRECK WITH A PEANUTBUTTER SHAKE AND A SUGAR COOKIE EVERY SINGLE DAY FOR THE REST OF MY GOD DAMNED LIFE. Seriously. Sandwiches = on point. I toss everything on that bitch too. Man are their peppers good. Mmmm. Their employees probably hate me for asking for a peanut butter shake every time (it's not on their menu but I get it anyways because I'm so hip and cool) but they do a good job at hiding their rage. Cookies are always warm and soft and if you don't like that then I don't like you. Give me more potbelly's pls.

Fantastic, made my food fresh, ordered for pick up and they drew an awesome picture of shrek and donkey on my bag! Made my day!

Clean. Smiles everywhere. Sweet personalities. Quick. Convenient. Delicious. Fresh and always has dozen oatmeal chocolate chips cookies for me....maybe it's because I'm currently HANGRY or maybe they're just that good but you should come to this east side location and check it out. ....yum!

Potbelly is one of my favorite sandwich chains. I always get the roast beef with provolone, and it's always fantastic. This location is pretty new to the east side, and it's a shame it's hidden by a lot of construction right now.
My sandwich artist? server? lady? was fantastic. Very chatty, relate-able, yet efficient.
While you're there, I highly recommend not skipping on getting one of their sugar cookies, which are baked exactly how I like them. My husband also loves their chili, which we will sometimes share. It's the bee's knees!

This location is situated pretty nicely. I love that the whole place can pretty much be seen through windows. Makes a somewhat small place look huge.
Staff at Potbelly's are always quick and very friendly. They help you along in their process of making food as it runs slightly different then other sub places.
Pro tip: if you want a shake, and believe me you do, order with your sandwich in the beginning. Get the Oreo.
My go to is the wrek salad, I don't even know the last time I had anything else I like it that much. It's full of lots of veggies plus blue cheese, salami, turkey and I believe ham. Whatever, it is it's delicious and I recommend it.
Sometimes I get a pickle too, it's just a dollar and it is fantastic. They slice it up for you to make it shareable. I can't believe I'm including a review on a pickle here, so let's move along.
Potbelly's is a great lunch or quick sandwich place.

Hooray! A potbelly on the east side! Toasted, with multigrain or flatbread, and the hot peppers! Made to order, these sandwiches are my absolute favorite. Throw in friendly, competent workers and live music, why wouldn't it be 5 stars?

After living on the east side for the last 3 months, and trying to maintain a healthier lifestyle.....my normal sub haunts were getting stale. I won't eat at Jimmy Johns for personal reasons, Subway's processed meat and frozen bread does nothing for me, Cousin's and Koppa's are good...but with a Potbelly in the area, I'm definitely looking forward to this.
I stopped in tonight for their Oven Warming party which is basically just a soft grand opening. $5 donated to a local school got you a sub, drink and chips. Despite being packed and a whole family of ignorant people in front of me who didn't understand the concept of sub, chips, and drink.....service was very fast and awfully friendly.
I look forward to making this a part of my normal rotation

Not only great food and excellent service, but everyone is so nice and they make you feel so welcome. Great prices and everything is always really fresh. 2.90 for a vanilla shake?!
By Diana M. at 2014-05-19
Order the pizza sub with hot peppers and extra marinara. You won't be sorry. Much better subs than subway, jimmy johns or cousins. Also it's cheap for the great quality!

Awesome sandwich. Being vegetarian enjoyed their Mediterranean with Tomato Basil soup...Yummy...
