The French Dip Sandwich At Loby's Grille Is A Lunchtime Favorite!

Loby's Grille, which you may know as Loby's Bar, in Jackson Township is one of my favorite Jackson Township restaurants.

Went there for lunch today. Had one of my favorite menu items, the French Dip Sandwich. That's thinly shaved roast beef, served on a Parisan roll, with a side of au Jus.

If you haven't been to Loby's lately, stop in to check out the "Red Hot" Value Menu. It's filled with great deal on some of the best bar food you'll find in Stark County.

Bad Parking, On Purpose, At Giant Eagle In Massillon


One of my biggest pet peeves is bad parking. All too often, I think, the reason people don't park between the lines is that they're inconsiderate of other people, disrespectful, one might say selfish.

When people purposefully take up two spaces I find that it makes me shake my head. Disgusted. This joker, at Giant Eagle in Massillon, for example.

I've seen beautiful cars, very expensive cars, rare cars parked between the lines, which adds to the feeling that there's no good justification, rationalization, excuse for behavior like this. Someone who parks like this, I think, is looking for special attention which makes it perfect to post.

My First Time Dining At TB's Sports Bar In Richville

When I go somewhere like TB's Sports Bar, in Richville, for the first time, I tend to go with a burger as a way to judge the kitchen's performance.

Dining at TB's Sports Bar today, I had what they call a "Bizzness" Burger; what's called a "western" burger at a lot of places.

The things that made TB's Sports Bar's "Bizzness" Burger stand out were that it's served on a  corn dusted roll and they use bourbon barbecue sauce. I'm always a fan of cheddar cheese, vs. the typical American, and the onion ring appeared that it may have been made inhouse, but the menu does not specify.

My initial impression of TB's Sports Bar was surprise that, at dinner time, there was only one other person in the place and they weren't eating. I'd say it's definitely worthy of another taste.

Lunch at The Flipside Grille in Magnolia


Lunch at The Flipside Grille in Magnolia.

They were kind enough to give me a preview of next week's Special of the Week; they'll be serving Pineapple Barbecue Chicken with Shrimp and one side.

Love the housemade Potato Chips at The Flipside Grille! It's rare in Stark County to find a place in Stark County that makes them without tasting burned. They nail it, perfect, every time!!

Tacos For Breakfast At The Whipple Cafe!


Breakfast at The Whipple Cafe, one of Stark County, Ohio best breakfast restaurants.

Breakfast tacos is a dish that you will not find, to the best of my knowledge, anywhere in Stark County except for The Whipple Cafe in Canton.

They load scrambled eggs, cheese, bacon and home fries on tortillas, you get two tacos in an order, and give you lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, salsa and refried beans to dress it up!

Breakfast Tacos at The Whipple Cafe in Canton, this is a breakfast I will definitely be having again.

A Visit to Exploration Gateway at Sippo Lake Park


Exploration Gateway, at Sippo Lake Park in Perry Township, is one of my favorite spots in Sark County.

The Stark County District Library Sippo Lake Branch is at Exploration Gateway, the Stark County Park District has offices there and they also operate the Congressman Ralph Regula Canalway Center.

I love  the energy efficiency aspects of this landmark building and you can walk out on a second floor patio for a great view of Sippo Lake.

Lunch At Loby's Grille, Stark County's Best Burger Restaurant



The first "Taking Stark County's Pulse" poll of 2016, Best Burger Restaurant in Stark County, Ohio, kicks off this week.

With that in mind, I couldn't think of a better spot to go for a late lunch than Loby's Grille. Loby's was the winner of the 2013 Best Burger poll.

 They have a double bacon cheeseburger on the menu, served with fresh cut fries, that will knock out your hearty appetite! It rates two thumbs up!
