After sampling all of the Mac & Cheese, my favorite topping was bacon bits.

Potbelly is off to a red-hot start in Uptown and owner Shak Patel has already announced a second location that will open in SouthPark’s Piedmont Town Center.

Hot! Hot! Hot!

In terms of volume and pricing, a side-sized mac costs $4.10, a cup costs $5.15 and a bowl costs $6.50.

While prices seem steep, Charlotte loves Potbelly and Charlotte loves mac and cheese, so I’m bullish on this rollout.

Oh, and Pastrami lovers like me can rejoice: Potbelly is also adding pastrami to their meat lineup today.
