El Azteca Mexican Restaurant

El Azteca Mexican Restaurant

El Azteca is one of the best Mexican restaurants you can find! Authentic food, decent prices and a great atmosphere are topped only by the fantastic service. The people of Wapak (Wapakonetians if you will) are truly lucky to have such a great Mexican restaurant. It also serves travelers heading north or south on I-75 as well as those going east or west on route 33. The building is beautifully decorated inside and you’d hardly know it was once a Big Boy restaurant. (At least, that’s what it looks like – we still need to find a long-time Wapakonetian that can verify this.) The menu is huge and you’re sure to find something that teases your palate – even if you’re a vegetarian. In fact the menu can be a little daunting. But you can pick from the combo menus if you’re not sure. That way you’ll also get a sampling of some various things. Perhaps the thing we like most about it is the food comes out QUICKLY. We’re not sure how they make the food so fast, but they do a great job, even with larger groups of people. And then there’s “Hot Plate” guy who will remind you not to touch your plate because it’s so hot. (Sometimes he likes to trick you though, so watch out 😝 ) Most combos are something like a burrito, a chalupa, rice and beans, all for $7.95. Lunch combos are priced even better at $6.95 mostly. For the cheapskates among us, you can grab a plate of nachos with cheese and beans for $4.50. It’s so filling you can...
Lucky Steer Restaurant

Lucky Steer Restaurant

The Lucky Steer Restaurant has been a Wapak tradition for over 40 years! It sits prominently on “Hamburger Row”, aka Bellefontaine Avenue, which is handy for travelers stopping in off of I-75. The friendly staff will have you smiling, as will the quick service, excellent food and great prices. The Lucky Steer has the feel of an old-fashioned diner but without any of the drawbacks. It doesn’t feel old, everything looks nice and modern. The menu has a nice variety and even has stuff to make vegetarians feel welcome. There’s a very friendly feel to everything, starting with the cute logo of the Lucky Steer himself. (Actually we’ve felt that the steer isn’t so lucky as he is probably going to be eaten, and my wife has dubbed the place the Unfortunate Cow. 😝) The food is fantastic and service excellent. In a word, this place is friendly. It makes you feel at home. For travelers, you just can’t go wrong. You’ll have service with a smile and be treated to an amazing meal. The ONLY thing we can say that isn’t positive is that you’ll likely come home smelling like a diner. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing though depending on your point of view!   Lucky Steer Restaurant...
