Lunch At Chopstix In Massillon

Chopstix is a hole in the wall Chinese restaurant, on Hills and Dales Road NW, in Massillon.

I had lunch there today, Orange Beef, with green peppers substituted for broccoli, and fried rice. Chopstix is all about the food, whether you're dining in, picking up or getting delivery; you don't go there for ambiance.

I'd rate Chopstix one of Stark County's best Asian restaurants!

A Visit To Kumon Math And Reading Center In North Canton

I visited Kumon Math and Reading Center in North Canton today.

Kumon offers remedial and enrichment programs, working with students ranging from 3 through high school. Miss Brittany specializes in working with students up to 6-years-old.

This little guy scored 100% on his math assignment and his reading assignment today!

Lunch At Loby's Grille, For One Of Stark County's Best Burgers

Loby's Grille, on Hills and Dales Road in Jackson Township, serves some of the best burgers in Stark County.

I had one of Loby's signature burgers today, a Classic Double; it's served on a Brioche Bun and is topped with four slices of American Cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, pickle chips and mayonnaise.

Love the fresh cut French Fries that Loby's serves with their burgers.

Sahara Grille, Our #1 Choice for Middle Eastern Food In Stark County

Sahara Grille, in Belden Village, is one of the best "ethnic" restaurants in Stark County and our #1 choice for Middle Eastern food.

Had a late lunch at Sahara Grille today. I chose the "Signature Tour of Sahara" combination platter, with Kofta, substituting fresh-made hummus for steak fries.

Two thumbs up for Sahara Grille!

Jerzee's Sports Grille In Belden Village, For A Pittsburgh "Primanti Brothers" Style Sandwich!

Stark County is well populated by former residents of the Pittsburgh area. When I want a taste of Pittsburgh I go to Jerzee's Sports Grille in Belden Village.

Jerzee's has what it calls "Two Handed Sandwiches" on its menu, what anyone who has spent time in Pittsburgh would know as the closest thing you can get to Primanti Brothers restaurant!

There are three Primanti Brothers style sandwiches on the menu at Jerzee's; the best one, which I had for dinner today, is a Steak and Cheese.

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.
