Massillon

Liebermann’s Bakery | Donut Wars

If you’re craving a sweet treat from Liebermann’s Bakery in downtown Massillon, you’d be wise to arrive early. “Especially on Fridays and Saturdays, you best get here by 9 o’clock,” said Sue Liebermann, a 33-year bakery employee. “We open up at 6. The glazed donuts and creamsticks are usually the first things to sell out.”

Top of the Viaduct

The menu at Top of the Viaduct in Massillon is overflowing with goodies. Try the Sriracha Vermont Cheddar with Chicken Pasta Bowl, $8.99 (bottom), or opt for the tasty Tiger Fries, $5.99, or the Salmon Patties (served with two sides of your choice), $8.99.

Dori Heck gives her local picks

Dori Heck was a small beach town girl from Los Angeles living in New York City when she decided to move to Massillon. “I honestly had no idea what I was getting involved in,” Heck recalls of the decision to move to her husband’s hometown in 2001. “I knew I wanted to have more than one kid and wanted to stay home with them. Massillon allowed us to do that. It was lot cheaper than New York City.”

First Taste: Menches Bros.

From the inventors of the hamburger, Menches Bros. has three locations, with two in Stark County. Stop in the Massillon location and try a Juicy Lucy Burger top with crumbled bleu cheese, bacon, lettuce and honey mustard ($8.39), or make it a combo with a drink and french fries (an additional $3.89) or onion rings ($4.89).
