I'm a New York chowhound who was in Canton, Ohio for a few days. Ate at various places, as follows:
1. Had lunch & ice cream at a local eatery called Taggarts', at Fulton and 14th Street NW. The lunch I had (hamburger) was pretty bland and bad, the ice cream was pretty good - we got the "turtle" sundae, with caramel and hot fudge. Nice flavors.
2. We tried the much-heralded Barberton chicken (actually in Norton), Millich's, on Cleveland-Massillon Road South of I-76 (I think). Everything I read about this type of food was that it was unique, a Central European blend of spiciness that the chicken was cooked in. I thought that it was tasty, but nothing special; the chicken was fried in a crispy, vein-clogging way (I mean that as a compliment!) and the "Spanish rice" (rice with a spicy red sauce), French fries, and applesauce were palatable, not mind-blowing.
3. Had steak and ribs at Mulligan's, on Belden Village just west of I-77 in a strip mall. The ribs were OK, sauce tangy and a little bit sweet; strip steak decent when rare.
4. My favorite meal was at Bombay Sitar, up the raod from Mulligan's on Belden Village Road. We had lamb vindaloo, vegetable samosas, and sweet lassis. Everything was good - the lamb vindaloo was genuinesly hot and spicy, at our request.
5. We had lunch at the Athens Diner, a Greek restauarant with weird hours (6 am-3 pm) on Harrison and 9th Street SW. I liked the gyro sandwich that I had - nice texture to the pita, good mix of meat flavors with yogurt sauce. My dining companion, however, hated her dish, which was some kind of long-grain rice with beef tips - I forgot the name of it.
