Round-Abouts Restaurant’s signature 3-inch Rounds—featuring a fluffy, homemade crust—conceal savory fillings such as cheese steak, roast beef, or pepperoni with pizza sauce ($2.25 each). Combo meals cater to hunger-pang decibel levels with a choice of up to three pies with a drink and a side of green salad, fruit salad, a cup of soup, or chips ($5.50–$8.25). For a more angular entree, sandwich fixings such as pulled pork and chicken salad nestle into fluffy ciabatta buns ($2 for half; $3.50 for whole). Sweet-teeth can delve into 1.5-inch yo-yo dessert pies, which pervade mouths and unlicked fingers with chocolate and fruit treats.
Mellifluous melodies drift through the restaurant on Friday evenings, when the intimate dining room plays host to local musicians from 6:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. The checkerboard counter pops against a burgundy backdrop, and small square tables accommodate hungry diners and gravity-prone saltshakers.
When Nate Kellison was brainstorming a unique idea for his restaurant, he consulted one of his most trusted culinary sources: his mom. She reminded him of reuben rolls, a treat she'd often made for him and his brother when they were young. The idea was simple enough: take the sandwich's ingredients and roll them all up in dough. To give them an even more unique look, Nate's wife suggested they make them as little pot pies. And just like that, Round-Abouts was born.
Today, Round-Abouts doesn't just serve "rounds" stuffed with reuben ingredients. There are also mini pies stuffed with pizza fixings, barbecued chicken, broccoli and cheese. All of these options share the menu with breakfast flavors and smaller dessert versions filled with chocolate or fruit. To maintain the homespun vibe, Nate invites local musicians and artists to share their work in his restaurant.
