We try to go to local mom/pop places and this one didn't disappoint. My lunch was a tasty, meaty burger with crisp edges, plus hot tater tots and plenty of them! My Spouse had a club that was huge and I was almost jealous. Almost. Lots of meat, toasty bread, great flavor! Still, my burger was yummy. While we waited... More

This is your classic small time diner, compete with a real Peggy Sue! Menu is typical burgers, fries, grilled cheese. Breakfast all day is nice. Great decor. Lots of local characters there the day we visited. Just a fun little place off the dunes.

Not awful...but I will not call good either. Extremely average. Service was okay, food I could have made at home. Nothing stood out, the biscuits and gravy have no flavor other than pepper. The cheese they used on the breakfast burrito and skillet was most certainly Velveeta. Disgusting cheese choice for a breakfast joint. All in all its okay if... More

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
