Potbelly Sandwich Shop: Tasty Sandwiches

Potbelly Sandwich Shop is a small chain with a location in Arlington that was opened in a former antique store in Chicago during the 1990s.

The owner built a menu of great, traditional sandwiches made with the best Italian cured meats and fresh vegetables, and the company has steadily grown throughout the United States. Arlington locals regard Potbelly as a delightful spot, with fresh ingredients and big flavors. Some of the most popular sandwiches include the A Wreck, made with salami, roast beef, turkey, ham, and Swiss. More health-conscious consumers can choice from the “Skinnys” menu, which has lighter fare on special thin-cut bread. All sandwiches are oven-toasted after ordering to melt any cheeses and give the flavors of the various ingredients a chance to mix and mingle.

Prices here are very reasonable and service is lightning-fast.

Dig a Spoon Into These Hearty Chili Recipes

Few things taste better on a chilly fall day than a warm bowl of hearty chili, but your staple recipe may start to get a bit tired after a few seasons. Here are three tasty new chili recipes that are equally as comforting but a bit more creative.

All-American Chili [myrecipes.com]
Whether you use it to top grilled hot dogs or to eat right from the bowl on a cold afternoon, it doesn’t get more all-American than this chili recipe. Ground sirloin and hot Italian turkey sausage give this a flavorful, meaty taste, while a hefty splash of merlot makes a delicious secret ingredient that your guests are sure to ask about.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup [allrecipes.com]
Add a Mexican flair to your usual chili with this hearty chicken taco soup made entirely in the slow cooker. Serve it topped with sour cream, green chilies, tortilla strips, or healthy avocado for even more flavor.

Turkey and White Bean Chili [marthastewart.com]
If you prefer a chili that’s a bit lighter than most, this recipe is the perfect choice. Lean turkey and mild white beans are the base ingredients, but jalapenos and ground cumin give it that slight kick that you love about spicy chili.
