Potbelly’s A Wreck Sandwich


A Wreck” is a submarine sandwich from Potbelly Sandwich Works. It is made up of Black Angus roast beef, old world salami, oven roasted turkey breast, hickory smoked ham, and melted Swiss cheese. It also comes with mayo, mustard, hot peppers, lettuce, onion, tomato, pickle, oil, and Italian seasoning depending on your choice/s. As for the bread, you can choose between white (regular) and wheat.

If you don’t want to gain extra pounds, you should probably order the “Skinnys”. It is the same sandwich with less meat and cheese on thin-cut bread. This has 25% less fat than the original. Though this suggestion does not guarantee that you will not gain extra pounds, at least you are sure that your calorie intake will be lesser.


They also have the “Bigs”. This is the same sandwich but 30% bigger. This is definitely a colossal sub that would satisfy any appetite. I wonder if an ordinary guy like me could still stand up after having one.

The price is not that bad. The “Originals” (regular) sells for $4.40 a piece (+ tax) and you can get the “Bigs” for a buck more (+ tax).

I enjoy eating this sandwich because it has the entire flavor that I want and it fills me easily. Since I can only finish a half of it for lunch, I can eat the other half for dinner which saves me time and money.
