    ~10$ lunch. Dine in possible. Worth it.

    Sandwiches are just okay. This was a daily lunch spot for me in college at Ohio State. I still prefer to go to your typical NYC deli for my sandwiches over PotBelly.

    Solid solo Union Square lunch choice. They could use a better ventilation system in here, though. Smoky!

    If you do not get hot peppers, you are a fool.

    The line may look long but it moves super fast. Wait it out.

    Grilled chicken is awesome!

    "Thin-cut, double-meat, original turkey breast on multigrain" ...And now my Potbelly order has become longer than my Starbucks order.

    Kai Brinker · May 9, 2014
  • Nick S.

    Definitely get the hot peppers

    Nick Smith · February 10, 2014

    Smells like burnt plastic in here. I'm gonna hurl.

    A 'classier' version of Quiznos.

    Nina LoSchiavo · September 7, 2013

    Great people who remember their regulars. The grilled chicken cheddar is great but you can always change up the classic wreck.

    Eddie Jennings · August 22, 2013
  • Annette L.

    Mayo is a must... They need more sauces for the sandwiches.

    Annette Lilly · August 9, 2013
  • Elliot G.

    Didn't like their Oreo shake. Very basic and the cookies-component is too finely minced. I prefer chunks of oreos in my shake!

    Elliot G · August 4, 2013
  • Alex S.

    If you're going to get something sweet, make it the Chocolate Brownie Cookie. Yes, that's a thing.

    Alex Stein · July 30, 2013
  • Thomas R.

    Great combo

    Thomas Reintjes · July 8, 2013

    The turkey breast is super filling for being so low in calories!

    Josh Clapper · July 1, 2013
  • David S.

    Why does this place smell like burning plastic every time I go inside?

    David Schorr · March 13, 2013
  • Walter B.

    They sometimes give away free cookies right before they close.

    Walter Blaurock · January 20, 2013
  • Harry P.

    Nowhere near as crowded as its Chicago siblings, despite being in Union Square.

    Harry Pujols · December 21, 2012
  • Kim W.

    Omg. The mediterrean sandwich is so good. Hummus and feta with veggies. Delish!

    Kim Williams · October 5, 2012
  • david ' dj shakez ' t.

    Make sure you grab an Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookie, they put crack in it, possibly Molly too!

    david ' dj shakez ' thai · October 3, 2012
  • Evan K.

    Simple. Turkey & Swiss on Whole Wheat = Delish!

    Evan Kraut · September 27, 2012
  • Chris C.

    As good as chain fast casual gets. Only Chipotle can compare when it comes to ingredient quality and consistency. Italian with everything, bag of Zapps and a fountain made Arnold Palmer is the winner

    Chris C · September 10, 2012

    The mediterranean sandwich is phenomenal!! Now I just have to try to recreate it at home! Highly recommended!!!!

    Christina Koharski · August 19, 2012
  • Sami

    As a Chicagoan I'm so happy this is finally in NYC! Smoothies are heavenly and my friends are obsessed with their dream bars.

    Sami · July 23, 2012

    Love the coffee milkshake!

    Word to their Pizza Sandwich!

    Get the Mediterranean sandwich with hot peppers and experience a glimpse of Heaven long before judgment day.

    im leaving another comment since this is seriously the best food place ever. so much love! came in after their closing time and they were still so friendly and helpful <3

    Victoria Wong · June 17, 2012

    Roast beef on multigrain! Sooo good.

    Lauren Shia · June 9, 2012
  • Arif K.

    Sandwiches are good, but I wasn't too impressed with the side salads.

    Arif Kostak · May 19, 2012
  • Christopher T.

    Everything's good here, but my staple is a wreck on white, everything no mayo no mustard. Pick up a sugar cookie with it to get the savory/sweet combo down :)

    Christopher Tai · April 17, 2012
  • Victoria W.

    Best sandwich shop in town! Or ever! Never forget the hot peppas! Yum

    Victoria Wong · April 10, 2012

    Oreo milkshake.. So good! And yes, the hot peppers are a must. Makes me miss Dallas, TX

    Haven't lived in New Orleans > 15 years still buy #NOLA products when I see them Zapps Chips for sale here

    Superslow staff...takes forever

    Decrease your caloric intake and get thin cut bread. 1/3 of the bread left off

    Christina Buquid · February 28, 2012
  • Michael H.

    Roast beef sandwich. Hands down. Also the pickles and milkshakes are the jimmy jam.

    Michael Harrington · February 28, 2012
  • Micah F.

    Free cookie if you check in with Yelp. (Late Feb 2012.)

    Micah Freedman · February 27, 2012

    Get the wrecking ball... Shh!

    Chris Walsh · February 23, 2012
  • Arshan S.

    The absolute best chain sandwich place around. Fresh cold cuts and amazing milk shakes are their forte. If u like meat try the Wreck or Pizza. Always toasted always delish. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Chicken Salad with hot peppers is a score!

    Helps this Chicagoan when homesick... now we just need Portillo's & Lou Malnati's to move east.

  • Sandra N.

    Best sandwich in the city. Waited 6 years for it to come to NY. Get mini oatmeal cookies to finish the meal. You won't regret it.

    Sandra Nam · December 23, 2011

    A Brooklyn sandwich chain that does toasted sandwiches rather nicely. There isn't much seating, but the staff is friendly and there's live music at lunchtime.

    Shaina M · December 20, 2011
  • Roberto T.

    Pizza sandwich is delicious!

    Roberto Thais · December 14, 2011

    Live music during lunch, and it's really pretty good.
