I assume that before becoming a true resident of Massillon, you’re required to eat at the Cameo Grill. The bar and restaurant, which has been locally owned and operated since 1944, just has that authentic hometown feeling. The walls are covered in vintage photographs and Massillon Tigers memorabilia—you can grab a football schedule at the bar—and the wait staff seemed to know most customers by name.
The Cameo Burger is uniquely simple. Maybe that’s why it has stood the test of time. The Cameo Grill, a bar and restaurant, is a 72-year-old landmark on Massillon’s south side. Original owners, including George Bickis, created the trademark burger; successive owners haven’t dared to tamper with it.
