My sandwich was very good. The fruit cup was very good and not the run of the mill grape one. It had variety. The sweet tea is not that sweet but, I am a Southerner and like it SWEET. The shop is very cozy. Be prepared to share your space while there. The Staff were very nice. It is Downtown... More

Most sandwich shops these days are a franchise chain. What happened to the mom & pop sandwich shop! I think "on a roll" is the closest thing I've come to visiting a "non-chain" sandwich shop in a very long time. Immediately noticeable, as soon as you walk-in, is their 10 foot black board that creatively describes all they offer. I... More

On a Roll is directly across the street from the Courtyard, the food was fantastic from the homemade potatoe salad to the chicken salad wrap with pineapple. The service was friendly and very polite they offered suggestions that were what they said. I truly recomend that you give it a try, you won't be sorry
