Red Lion Grog House is dedicated to Old English cuisine and feel in a clean, Americanized environment. The menu is that of a traditional British restaurant, offering such great British dishes as scotch eggs, shepherd's pie, bangers and fish & chips.

And of course, whats a British pub without some great beer? The Red Lion has a wide selection of imported ales on tap. If you're looking for something a little stronger, you can try the classic British cocktails, like a Pimm's cup, or any of their many craft cocktails. Wooden decor and furnishings complete the old world English feel. The TVs always have the latest sporting event on, so it's the perfect place to catch your favorite team's latest match.
A trip to La Margarita is like a trip south of the border. They offer a full menu of authentic Mexican food, with highlights like ceviche and grilled carne asada.

But if tequila's not your thing, they do also have a great selection of craft beers from around the country.

Way out on Washington Street, halfway between the Speedway and Downtown, there's a brief stretch known as Little Mexico. La Posada anchors the eastern end with a char-broiled menu of tacos, tamales and other south-of-the-border specialties. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, and all are delightful. Meats such as chorizo and al pastor are of a quality not seen often in the Midwest. The space itself is a bit hole-in-the-wall, but it's clean as can be, and sparse decor lets the diner better focus on the food. Be sure to wash it down with a cold Mexican cerveza.
