This weekend the husband and I stayed in Lansing for the first time in forever. It was so nice to sleep in two mornings in a row! Saturday we stopped at Potbelly, which is located directly across the street from Michigan State University. It is on a strip of road filled with cool eateries, shops, bookstores and all things college friendly. From tanning to American Apparel to medical marijuana, you can find a little bit of everything here. I saw this particular sandwich shop when we first arrived here almost 2 months ago...
You order your sandwich and they put it through the conveyer belt oven which not only melts the cheese and meat but finishes cooking the bread as well. Then you choose your toppings......
I ordered the skinny mushroom melt with creamy tomato soup.
They call it skinny for reason, I wasn't very satisfied after eating this but it was very good. I also got hot peppers which were actually celery, banana pepper and carrots that had been pickled in a spicy mixture. YUM.
Husband got the turkey melt. He thought it was pretty bland and ended up eating half of my soup because he
is a bottomless pit was still hungry as well...
Our little spot, you can see State's campus... I wasn't supposed to be in the picture.
Snowy day...the creamy tomato soup was the best part!
Partly just because it was HOT!
View of the whole sandwich shop.
Overall, we give Potbelly a 6.5 out of 10. It was a cool shop with as good as service as you get when a bunch of college guys who were probably hitting up the medical marijuana shop earlier are running the joint. The soup was to die for and the sandwiches left us wanting a little more. However, we would try this place again because we give any establishment that will feed us a second chance.
Have you ever been to Lansing? Any great restaurants that got a 10 out of 10?
