Jeff, I thought you loved their salads.



Panera is decent. Its not any better or any worse than similar chains. I like their bagels but they charge an arm/leg for damn cream cheese. Now I bring my own.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Your insane, talk about overpriced and a chain. Your a hypocrite. Potbellys is hella expensive I went there once and never again $10 for the same sub par sandwich and chips.

I thought you were going to come up with some ma and pop deli or something. But you disappointed.

They have free wireless internet.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

This just proves to show why all these places exist

I hate Potbellys, but I love Jimmy John's and Panera.

I’ll take McDees of BK every time.

And the best thing about Panera is their cheese and egg soufflé

actually I thought there food was pretty decent for being a chain and basicaly fast food wait times. Bread is good, buy a loaf or 2 once in a while, but as far as being over priced, everything is over priced.

Don't even get me started on Starbucks and being overpriced.

Well in that case maybe I can take you on a work trip. Right now I'm running costs for remediating the "Eye Ointment Burial Site." Anyone need some spare military eye ointment? so gross....
