Dayton, your new late-night snack of choice has arrived.
And it will set you back just $3 for one or $5 for two.
I was into it when Oregon District resident Guy Fragmin said he’d open 416 Diner in that neighborhood and it would feature pepperoni rolls, a treat popular in West Virginia.
I didn’t doubt Guy when he said they’d be good, but boy are they good.
I can definitely see grabbing a pepperoni roll or two from the restaurant as a nightcap following a night of fun in the Oregon District.
But pepperoni rolls are far from the only thing at the restaurant.
The diner will be open daily 7 a.m. 10 p.m. with patio service available Thursday, Friday and Saturday 10 p.m. to 1 a.m.
It serves breakfast, lunch and late-night comfort food like hoagie sandwiches, omelets and burgers.

The restaurant officially opened Friday, July 7 ,and I popped in to try out a pepperoni roll.
The portable snack can be split open and filled with a list of toppings that includes provolone cheese and sweet peppers.
Being a novice to the pepperoni roll game, I elected to have my first one plain with ranch dressing and marinara sauce for dipping.
The bread was fresh, soft, yeasty and crusty in the right spaces.
The two pepperoni sticks contained within were slightly spicy. The dough soaked in the grease in the magical way dough on pizza soaks in grease.
