Casey's Pizza is legendary, and word has it that it was invented in little Pilot Grove.
No, not really--but these are the things you think about on a chilly Saturday night when you pitch your tent in the City Park after 62 miles hard riding from Clinton and can't fathom how you thought riding up to Deon's (like, a whole mile away) could be a good idea. If you're down to walking, Casey's is The Bomb.
Seriously though, for those not from around here: Casey's is a gas station and convenience store, but their pizza is really quite delicious. Call in your order, pick it up (and some beer), and you are eating like the Kings of Old, even if a Norther blew in and you're hunched over in an ultralight tent, shivering with every last kCal you can spare. Ask me how I know this. You then will live to ride another day. In the morning, grab a slice or two of their breakfast pizza and it will carry you twenty miles or more, and that with only the most minimal GI distress.
And they have better work gloves than the local Dollar General, while Dollar General has other sundries, like pyjama bottoms in overlarge sizes. Though, if you're down to adding layers against an unexpected frost by giving Dollar General and Casey's your wallet, God help you.
