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!

You never know what you might find on the "Specials" board at Nut House Saloon in Richville. I went there for lunch today.

Among the specials were a Roast Beef Sandwich with a side order of Potato Salad. I hope they'll have this one again.

Easterdays Flower and Gift Shop, Where Stark County, Ohio Shops For Christmas


Shopping at locally-owned Stark County businesses is a priority in our household and we make every effort to support small businesses

That's why when we decided to get a new Christmas tree we went to Easterdays Flower and Gift Shop in Jackson Township this weekend.

We were able to get a beautiful seven-foot pencil tree, which they'd be using for display, at 30% off the regular price!

Spotted a Flock of Wild Turkeys in Pike Township!


Driving North on Route 800, through Pike Township, I spotted a flock of wild turkeys in a farm field.

After getting a few shots from across the road I wondered if it would be possible to get a little closer. Once I crossed the road, though, it wasn't long 'til they started heading for the nearby woods.

First time Dining At Nuevo Acapulco Restaurant and Bar


First time dining at Nuevo Acapulco Restaurant and Bar in Jackson Township.

Ordered Steak Fajitas with corn tortillas. This is a simple dish, which makes it perfect to judge the quality of what they're doing in the kitchen.

They served a hearty portion of food and it was delicious. Based on my experience tonight Nuevo Acapulco could very well be one of the best Mexican restaurants in Stark County, Ohio.

I'll definitely return to try more dishes. Stay tuned!
