Potbelly Sandwich Works

2264 North Lincoln Ave.
Chicago , IL , United States
(773) 528-1405

Established in Lincoln Park in 1977, Potbelly began as an antique store that just happened to serve sandwiches to hungry customers. Soon, the shop evolved into a café and has now expanded to become a 200-store franchise. At the flagship location, the interior is decorated with vintage signs, graffiti-covered walls, and a floor pipe in which patrons drop empty cans for recycling. However, the main draw is the menu of specialty sandwiches such as the original meatball topped with marinara, provolone, and Potbelly’s signature hot peppers. Diners also enjoy the hand-dipped milkshakes served with miniature sugar cookies encircling the straw.
