This is a fantastic diner. Caters to the local factories but they take great care of out-of-towners also! We dropped in for lunch and had Chicago-style hotdogs and Texas BLTs. So phenomenal. The diner is tiny and I think most patrons get their orders to-go....More

This little shop on Rt. 12 can be passed by quickly but if you do you'll be missing some of the best biscuits and gravy in NW Indiana.

The only place to stop between Beverly Shores and Gary when traveling US 12 is well worth the stop. Keep your eyes open or you will miss it. Great short order food and nice proprietor.

This place doesn't look like much but the food is great. They have some of the best beef sandwiches around.

You would never believe from the outside that this place has the best biscuits and gravy around. Trust a chubby girl, it's amazing!
