Great Mexican for both dining in and carry out. Lots of options and reasonably priced. They make a great margarita too with happy hour specials. If anyone isn’t in the mood for Mexican, their Philly cheesesteak with fries is huge and one of the best I’ve had in the area!

London Coffee Peddler

Reviewed By pvfamily - California

We stopped here on a chilly, rainy morning before starting a 40 mile bike ride. It was the perfect place to start the day. Kate was there running everything and was a fun, engaging "barista". She was full of information for us. Turns out, the owner is an avid bicyclist - he wasn't there, but Kate was chock full of biking info. The place has bicycle decor. We spent $13.00 for Banana nut muffins and Lattes + a tip. Awesome.Good muffins, great coffee (and a choice of just about any flavor you wanted added). This is a bicyclists dream find...

Red Brick Tavern

Reviewed By MaryannF650 - Clarksville, Tennessee

This restaurant has many good reviews and I would probably add to it. However good our prime rib meals were, it was THOROUGHLY spoiled by some child BANGING BANGING AND BANGING on the piano located in the next dining room. How anybody would allow that is beyond me. And, on a Saturday evening where couples are trying to enjoy a good dinner. I cannot fathom a parent allowing this. I cannot fathom management not addressing the issue since it was so very annoying. And it lasted almost throughout our meal and only stopped when I guess their food was served. Our waitstaff agreed with me. When one of the owners checked on our meal, I praised the good food and the excellent service. But, I had to complain about the piano banging. He apologized profusely and added that he cannot be responsible for the behavior of someone else's child. How very, very sad. I would have addressed the issue with the parent if they were in our dining room. Someone could have been diplomatic about it. Such a nice beautiful place spoiled by a kid out of control. Or should I say, parents who are out of control. Parents: A note from a licensed clinical psychologist. Teach your child some social skills or behavior skills before taking them out in public. Or at least address these behavioral problems when they occur. UNBELIEVABLE!

Cappy's Pizza

My wife and I have enjoyed their pizza buffet. They have very good pepperoni pizza. We especially love their founders favorite (double cheese, double pep). We need to try the rest of their food but always seem to lean toward pizza.

We've been to this gem 3 times since we moved to London in August. It has not disappointed! We personally enjoy the pizza but have also had the subs which are amazing. With four kids it can be hard to find a place we ALL love. Not only is it delicious but it's affordable, which is a why we'll continue to eat there! Love love LOVE.

I wish that Phat Daddy's had a better eat-in atmosphere, because we live within walking distance. When I want to go out to eat, I like to go to a place with a comfortable atmosphere, and that plays pleasing music (not all teeny bopper or pop. I don't even know if they play music in here, because we never eat in, but I would LIKE to!) Anyway, if they still have them, order an old world pepperoni pizza. They are offering discounts, now, for bicyclists why provide a helmet. This place is RIGHT off the marked bike trail through the city of London.

Discover Farm-Fresh Goodness

Reviewed By ExtraordinAyres - Greensboro, North Carolina

Great big thank you to our waitress Chaz for imparting that "home again" feeling. I had the Grilled Chicken breast, green beans, mashed taters and gravy. YUM. Best meal I've had for 2755 miles. The chicken was moist and tender, the green beans superbly seasoned and the taters and gravy were just like home. But I am a little biased when it comes to food in Ohio.

While at work, I ordered what is fast becoming my favorite from Donatos. I love their Three Cheese Garlic Bread only I get extra cheese and also Pepperoni on it. The combination is great. The young lady who delivered it even thought it sounded good and was going to try it.

Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen

Reviewed By bousozoku - Richmond, Indiana

This Popeyes store is in the TA (Truckstops of America?) food court. The plaza was incredibly busy and Popeyes had customers, but they worked very quickly.

I ordered 3 chicken tenders (no more strips, but nuggets are back after 14 years?) with red beans and rice and of course, you get a biscuit and a drink.

The staff were friendly and they got my order to me surprisingly quickly. The chicken and biscuit were only warm, but the red beans and rice were hot.

Good work at a truck stop.
