Good food, long wait

The food was good. Good took 40 mins to get though others who ordered after us got their food first. Good place for community but that also included toddlers running around while their parents ignored them. Probably won't be back when they are busy. No apology on wait from staff.

It's a good place to go in the morning for a bit to eat, nothing extravagant or fancy. It really is your average diner, but for a fast and cheap meal its pretty good.

I have breakfast with a friend on a monthly basis in Chesterton and our normal dive was closed so we decided to try out Peggy Sue's. It's definitely what you would expect from a small town diner. If you are a car enthusiast you'll enjoy the decor. The service was good, but the food won't be healthy. My food was... More

Nice place...plain and simple...good food. Visited twice and the food was very good. Would recommend if you're ever in the area. I'll go back if someone is willing to treat me for breakfast! Mary M. Hobart, IN

I have been going to this restaurant for over 30 years since moving to Chesterton. I like the breakfast & lunch menu, the wait staff is efficient & friendly, and the cost is very affordable. I wish the owners would realize how the carpeting makes the eating area look and feel dirty.

The staff was great and so was the food. We tried their oat meal, waffles and multi grain pancakes. The decor of the place with the theme of cars was interesting. The menu has a para on the 1st page with rules and regulations and was interesting plus fun to read :)

This place is like one of the best breakfest places to go. Been going here for years now and we love the place. Always good food, good conversation and laughs. Never had a bad plate of food. Come on by and stop in and sit a spell, and you will fall in love with the place!

My wife & I stopped-in for a late lunch while in the area on a mini-vacation. We're glad we did. The food was the typical fare that you would associate with a diner, and was prepared both well & quickly. My only comment is that I wished my mashed potatoes would have been slightly less watery. Our waitress, who also... More

We went in for breakfast and were treated by a young lady having a bad day. That lasted 1 minute. When she came back, she was pleasant and efficient. Plentiful coffee ( a must for breakfast). Got the Corvette special (eggs, bacon and half waffle). Great value and cooked to perfection. If we're ever in the area, we'll go back.
