    Hi gals, taking the hubby out for his bday this Saturday night in London, and wondered if anyone knew of a decent not outrageous priced place to go for dinner. Want to stay away from all the chain places, but something that serves full dinners for $20 and under each. Plan on going to the race track area, but willing to drive around.

    How about you sign up your hubby for Tony Roma's "Roma Rib Experts" at http://www.tonyromas.com/files/home.asp and they will send you an email that entitles him to a receive a free entree.

    Happy Birthday to Hubby of Littlemoe0

    Under the Volcano - a kinda authentic mexican place that's really decorated in the theme. The prices are decent and the food is decent if you like that type of food. It's in downtown London. *seems like you can sign up for an email list and receive coupons*

    Mongolian Grill is nice too, I think it might be a little more expensive but you can try to find a menu online (I couldn't) or call and ask. It's an interesting experience if you haven't been, and it's all you can eat so that's always good

    Michael on Thames is a fancy place to have dinner, the prices are a little higher (depends what you'll be eating) but it's a nice atmosphere for a special dinner. Prices are found on their site.


    I found this a while back, might help you out as well http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/360290

    Thanks London Mom, a friend of mine suggested there as well, and thought about it too. That might be the place, so close to where we are going and I heard it is awesome!

    I ordered from Tony's last week (first time) and had the WORST experience. I'm sure it doesn't happen a lot, but we ordered take out panzerottis and when I got home and took them out of the car I noticed that they were so greasey that it had all leaked out through the tinfoil all over my car seats- it was so gross and really hard to clean. It was so greasy that the panzerottis were MUSH, I called back to get new ones but they said the kitchen just closed, that reminded me that I still have to call back to speak with the manager about my situation, lol. I wasn't sure if it happens a lot of not because I usually order panzo from places that bake it- not deep fry. It was a horrible experience though, we couldn't even eat it. Also I asked for extra cheese and there was no cheese at all (and it still poured greasy goop everywhere, lol.) I also found it very expensive for the amount.

    Well we are on topic, does anyone know any good Panzerotti spots in town? I loved LOVED LOVEDDDDD Skinny Pete's on Dundas Street East but it seems they have closed up shop. (Litterly the BEST panzerotti I have ever had!)

    I know all about the Tony's grease! That's too bad that they were mushy. We've never had that problem.

    We are in Byron so the Tony's near Quebec is too far from us. We always order panzerottis from Ianni's on Springbank which is another Tony's location. Whenever we order these they come wrapped in foil inside a cardboard box so I'm surprised they didn't put them in something else. Personally I don't like how greasy and doughy they are at the ends, but they are always filled to the brim with cheese and other toppings. I think we get larges and they are honestly the size of a football! DH slices them up and freezes them with the marinara sauce for his own frozen dinners.

    We go every year to Tony Roma's for DH's bday. They used to offer $18.99 coupon of the entree but have now changes it to $10 off. Still a great deal. You can just drop in and show id since the coupon is for the week of your bday.

    I've heard great stuff from Tony's Pizza across from the tracks but yet have to try.

    Boston Pizza has the 10 for $10 deal right now. DH took me last week and I was quite impressed.

    I tried Massey's on King Street - the food was very tasty! Can't comment on the service cuz I went late night on a weekday and it was empty with just one other customer. I did find that the quantities were too small for the price, but the taste was quite good.
