BB, glad to hear Mary Coyle's is still around. I lived in that neighborhood and had ice cream there all the time.

I have lived in Akron for almost 5 years now, and it's a passion of mine to find good local eats. Here are some of my top picks.

Pizza, Gyros, and Subs (carryout or delivery) - Europe Gyro (a few different locations)

Diner Fare - Mike's Place in Kent has one of the biggest sandwich menus I have ever seen in the area.

Middle Eastern Fare - Aladdin's Eatery in Highland Square (even though this is a chain, this particular location is the best and has a few signature dishes like chicken chili [really good})

Tallmadge Family Restaurant decent diner fare, but their new middle eastern menu is very authentic.

Burgers - Swenson's is really good, but a little pricey for the portion size.
I prefer Louie's Bar and Grille in the North Hill area (about 2 1/2 miles away from Chapel Hill Mall)

American - Jordan's Family Restaurant in Uniontown The building's structure looks a little dinky from the outside, but inside it's clean and has friendly service and REALLY GREAT PRICES. Their broasted chicken and fried fish are the highlights, and their homemade bread pudding has an interesting texture, but it's really yummy. (no credit cards)

Actually, I probably would consider Tangiers Roadfood, because it's a local institution that's survived for decades with only minor changes. But I haven't been there in years, so I can't vouch for it these days. As I recall the decor was straight out of the 50's, and the food was pretty good, though probably not exactly authentic Middle Eastern cuisine. It was always considered a special occasion place when I was growing up in North Canton.

I live in Copley, just west of Akron. Moved here from Boston, MA, about 9 years ago. Finding ethnic restaurants in this area has been a challenge. Saffron Patch, an Indian restaurant, in the valley has a great daily lunch buffet. Just discovered another culinary jewel, Wafa's - a middle eastern restaurant - in an office building on Embassy Parkway. The food is homemade - stuffed grape leaves, baba ganoosh, tabouli, etc. - no frills, paper plates & plastic silverware - but the food is well worth it. They are only open M-F 7-3pm. We used to like Two Amigos in Highland Square for Mexican but the hispanic cook, Monica, is not there anymore & the food is not good so we have not been there in a good six months. House of Hunan in Medina is another lunch favorite of ours.

I posted a message on 1/26 mentioning Two Amigos in Highland Square and today I read in the Akron Beacon Journal that Two Amigos closed in December. Wanted to clarify that rather than give anyone bad and outdated information.

I did not see this thread either, another good resturant is the Ido Cafe in South Akron, a "dive" but good food at a fair price.
 
So I will also add what I had in the other thread.
Mary Coyle Ice Cream and Micheal Trecasos resturant on West Market st.  fair prices although small portions. (Be Forwarned)
 
Whiteys Booze n Burgers, in Richfield OH expensive but worth it.
 
Golden Corral, the Nightmare, fair prices good portions, a lot of kids running around.
 
Metroburger,  West Market street, Akron OH, sort of diagonally across from Mary Coyle, a block up., 1/3, 1/2, and 1lb Beef Hamburgers, or Chicken Breasts, or Ground Turkey, or Veggieburger
 
for ice cream Stricklands they always have vanilla, and chocolate, and a daily flavor of the day
 
For a good breakfast, Wally Waffles, great belgium waffles, very good portions, the place looks like a dive but the food is fantastic,  they used to open early now they open at 8am to 8pm.. good food

Has anybody been to Chrissie Hynde's place in downtown Akron.  I understand it's vegetarian but that's all I know.  She of course was the lead singer for The Pretenders.

And their wonderful song "My City was gone" was about Akron. And Devo was from Akron.
