M E N U
For now the hours here will be 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. M-F, closed weekends.  They may change after the initial break in period.  For those who have looked in before, you will notice that the menu has changed to a newer format.  Same prices and selection.


This is the NEW menu, effective June 2015
On 6/8/15 I stopped by and this time had the French Dip on a Roll ($7.00), last time was the Pastrami whole at ($9).

'ON A ROLL' Sandwich Shop is Now Open!

Some new photos of the restaurant which was closed 5/23-4 while the parking lot was re-surfaced.  Hours will be 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Note:  During the summer of 2012, T J Bryan's was also open 11-3 five or six days a week, and for a bit I believe they tried 8-3. 



The 'old' T J Bryan's Facebook page is still up at:  https://www.facebook.com/TJBryans

"ON A ROLL" Gourmet Sandwich Shop To Open Soon Downtown Kennesaw

You might recall the downtown Kennesaw restaurant "The Boxcar Cafe"  and "T J Bryans" http://theboxcarcafe.blogspot.com/, both run by the same people (Natasha, Marie and T J Bryan) at 2893 N. Main Street, just across the parking lot from the Library.


Unfortunately it failed both times, but now after being empty for some time a new gourmet sandwich shop is about to open in the same location.

This restaurant has the same ownership as PISANO'S PIZZERIA LLC which is located 3 blocks further south on Main Street at the intersection of Summer Street.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Between the closing of the old T J Bryan's restaurant and the opening of  'On A Roll' this unit was rented for one year by '1 Little Meal', a charity which provides lunches for kids.  

Their blog site still is up at:  https://www.facebook.com/pages/1-Little-Meal-Inc/162283587267381

WHISTLE STOP CAFE COMING TO DOWNTOWN AUG 1, 2015

Plans for the Whistle Stop Cafe seem to be on track for a relocation from their current Cobb Pky location on Sat. August 1st.




The restaurant will close 2 weeks before the move in order to complete the relocation, which includes the trademark train.

The new location downtown is the old Wachovia Bank building, outdoor seating will be featured and the vault area will be used for office space and storage.  The indoor area available for customer dining will be slightly smaller than at their existing location.





The former Whistle Stop location on Old Main Street, next to Wildman's, remains boarded up and unused since the fire there several years ago.

I assume this restaurant will open soon, it looks like they ran out of room to hang banners!

"ON A ROLL" Gourmet Sandwich Shop To Open Soon Downtown Kennesaw

You might recall the downtown Kennesaw restaurant "The Boxcar Cafe"  and "T J Bryans" http://theboxcarcafe.blogspot.com/, both run by the same people (Natasha, Marie and T J Bryan) at 2893 N. Main Street, just across the parking lot from the Library.


Unfortunately it failed both times, but now after being empty for some time a new gourmet sandwich shop is about to open in the same location.

It is called "On A Roll" and the owner is Anthony Valvo.  I note that there is an Allstate Insurance Agent of this name and also there is a man by that name on Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/anthony.valvo.5/about




====================================================================

 NEW RESTAURANT TO OPEN SOON IN THIS LOCATION?

As of 1/19/15 the shop is cleared out except for some restaurant type items seen on the sideboard.  It is possible that a sandwich shop will be going in shortly.






1/17/15

FYI:  
Area residents will recall that while TJ's was open, 5/24/11 to 10/5/12, it was a continuation of the already closed Boxcar Cheesecake Cafe, with the same staff.  

Since then the property has been vacant for much of the time, the exception being for a rental for 12 months to "1 Little Meal Inc":  see - https://www.facebook.com/pages/1-Little-Meal-Inc/162283587267381

With ongoing construction downtown the prospects for rental increase a bit.  See:   http://downtownkennesaw.blogspot.com/
