Potbelly is a restaurant much like Subway or Whichwich that sells mainly subs, but also has side dishes as well to go with your sandwich, such as chili and soups. However, when it comes to being a vegetarian, do they have any good choices and options? let’s find out.
For starters, all of their sandwich breads are vegan. Also, all of the toppings are vegan as well, except for the mayo and the Tzatziki sauce.
So to start off, let’s look at what is good for anyone who is vegan:
- PB&J Sub
- Garden Vegetable soup
- Whole Pickle
- Some of the chips
- Steel Cut Oatmeal
- Seasonal Fruit
- Bagels (except for the cheddar herb)
Including what is listed above, let’s see what is good for vegetarians:
- Grilled Cheese
- Vegetarian Sub
- Mediterranean sub
- Mac and Cheese
- Broccoli Cheddar
- Classic Tomato
- Potato Salad
- Macaroli Salad
- Cole Slaw
- Desserts and smoothies
- Mediterranean Square and Breakfast Mediterranean
- Egg and Cheddar
What I like about Potbelly is that it is open to vegans and people who live a meat-free lifestyle. You can also alter some of the menu items to make them more vegan-friendly. For instance, both the vegetarian sub as well as the Mediterranean sub can become vegan if you remove the cheese.
They also have hummus, which is a delicious vegan-friendly protein source, although it does not have a lot of protein. But it is good that if you are going out to eat at Potbelly, you can have a full course meal as a vegan. You can have a Mediterranean sub without cheese, with soup and seasonal fruit as a side. Or fill the sub with chips, whatever suits your fancy.
So I have to give Potbelly a thumbs up for offering pretty good vegan and vegetarian options, and even including options for people who don’t eat eggs, dairy, or both. So kudos to you Potbelly. You’re better than Subway.
