Never had Potbelly but Jimny Johns is way overpriced for what you get.

Never heard of Pot Bellys but based on the quality of the food at Jimmy Johns, there is no way it could be worse.

There's no Pot Bellys around here, and I've never been. To Jimmy John's either

Pushed post too early as usual. My sister has been to Jimmy John's and said it was nasty.

We don't have potbellies around here. I'm not really a big fan of JJ's either though. Jersey Mike's all the way.

I've had JJ's but didn't see anything gourmet about it, maybe one notch better than Subway. I choose Potbelly.

I look at both ( never had either) but Pot Belly looks like they use real bread. JJ look more like Subway.

Jimmy Johns does not serve Ranch. Therefore it is inferior to all restaurants.

Never have had or even seen either, but have seen the commercials for Jimmy John's. So I picked the other one.

Potbelly is terrific! There hot pepper mix is seriously nectar of the slightly spicy gods.

I travel a lot and have potbelly close to home but almost NEVER come across them elsewhere. I didn't think this was a fair comparison for that reason.

In that they are sub shops where you custom order? Yes. In taste and meat quality? No,They are two or three tiers above subway quality wise.

Live in Portland and don't recall seeing either one before. I wonder if it's a regional thing.

Meat quality at Jimmy John's is several steps below Subway. Don't know about the other we don't have it here.

05/24/17 5:20 pm

Interesting... subway meat is usually reconstructed meat products last time I was at JJ it was still deli meat if I remember correctly. Admittedly we don't go there often.

I have had JJ like three times and had three vastly different experiences. When it was good it was excellent I also had a meh and bad experience. Potbelly I always have good experiences.

There is a potbelly about 15 miles from me just never ventured to try a sandwich, I've had JJ all around, almost every time has been horrible. They don't have enough options on bread, sauce, veggies, really everything. It's over priced and mediocre.

Well I'd look at a potbelly menu before making the hike. I will say I feel potbelly has superior bread/meat etc to JJ. The shakes are also simple and delicious. That said the menu is probably 15-16 sandwiches, only 2-3 cheese options, and finishing the sandwich is Mayo/Mustard/Lettuce/Tomato/Peppers/Pickles so it's not every topping on earth. The "A Wreck" is my favorite. I prefer there multigrain bread as it stands up best against the stronger flavors in my fav sub with Hot Peppers added. Soups are good, cookies are terrific, but I will say they are not "cheap" they aren't ridiculous but it's not a value experience either.

Well none of those sandwich places seem to be price worthy realistically, when you're talking about buying a sandwich lol

But thanks for the info, whenever I'm back in that area where the PotBelly is I might check it out.

I've heard the name Jimmy John's. Didn't know it was a sandwich shop. The other is new to me, but I voted for it 'cause I like its logo.

Jimmy Johns is a flagrant violator of labor and employment laws. I see no reason to give them any of my money.

I prefer making my own sandwich at home, with "Fresh in ingredients", Potbelly🏮Stove is probably the shape you get from eating their sandwiches & Jimmy Johns, sounds like they would serve a possum🐭sandwich or roadkill❓surprise❗️

After reading about Jimmy John's CEO being a big game hunter and killing endangered animals, I will always choose any other restaurant over Jimmy John's.
