Let’s talk food

Here is an update on several Stark County restaurants, including the creative breakfast menu at Twisted Citrus and why BW-3 isn’t open now.

Those of you who are fans of the Buffalo Wild Wings franchise restaurants can stop worrying about the Belden Village location. Repeated phone calls to the restaurant went unanswered, a peculiar sign.

Rest assured, though, that location will be reopening soon. The Belden store is going through a remodel, and a spokesperson for BW-3 said it will reopen May 3 and be “bigger and better” than it was.

Until then, visit the other Stark County location in Massillon on Lincoln Way West.


Twisted Citrus is now open in North Canton, next door to TD’s Tailgate Grill on North Main Street. Twisted Citrus is owned by Scott and Kim Shapiro, the owners of TD’s, which is their second TD’s. The original TD’s is in Canton.

Twisted Citrus is an interesting concept. It shares both the kitchen and liquor license with TD’s, which is an economical way of opening a second restaurant. The menu at Citrus is creative.

There are plenty of three-egg omelet choices, which is typical for a breakfast place that’s open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Twisted specialties on the menu are eye grabbing and mouthwatering. The morning tacos were my favorite with three soft taco shells filled with breakfast potatoes, chorizo sausage, eggs, cheese and pico de gallo. Add the guacomole for 99 cents. The red velvet pancakes are to die for, too. The chocolate flavored pancakes are topped with strawberry capote, cream cheese icing and chocolate drizzle.

I didn’t try the hash & Benny’s menu, but it is interesting. There is a whole selection of eggs Benedict and hash recipes. Kim Shapiro said she has been accumulating the recipes from around the country from different places she has visited for years now.

There is also a mimosa and Bloody Mary bar on the weekends.


The restaurant at the Canton Brewing Company was supposed to open in the middle of April, and it has not. The space looks like a promising area, but it sure would be nice to order a pizza while having a cold one on the grounds there. Meanwhile, the “speakeasy” remains open downstairs.
