That Thai cuisine now flourishes in Canal Fulton is one of life's happy culinary surprises. And for that, we give thanks to chef-owner V-Li Van Sickel, a Thai native whose comfy Stark County dining room is more down-home than exotic, and whose preparations are subtle and accessible to midwestern palates. Among our picks are the fragrant soups, smoky pad Thai, and for dessert, the enticing sweet rice with custard.
An Akron tradition since 1934, this old-fashioned drive-in (now with seven Northeast Ohio locations) is home to the beloved Galley Boy double cheeseburger, along with a substantial array of sandwiches, soups, salads, and thick shakes and malts. Hint: Try an order of deep-fried mushrooms for a juicy change of pace.
