Great

One of the older take-out only places in North Hammond. They have a menu that gives you a good selection for size and amount of shrimp, which are always fresh. Nice place to stop and pick up dinner on the way home or to get a couple of pounds of shrimp to take to a party.

It's so darn good, you'll never be able to order shrimp from anywhere else again! Been getting this for years. ...doesn't get any better than this. Breading is perfect and minimal, shrimp are huge and meaty. Tip....just get the large shrimp, no need to spend extra money on the jumbo or colossal.

I just ate at Bob’s Shrimp in Hammond, IN based on reviews found on Tripadvisor. Maybe I have just spent too much time in New England or I eat out too much, but personally I was not impressed with the food. This is a small little “to-go” restaurant just across the rail tracks if you are coming from I-90. The... More

Awesome shrimp. But like I say in the title, it is carry-out ONLY. This place has had the same shrimp breading recipe since the Reagan era. A little bit of cornmeal, methinks; not too seasoned, but severely excellent. A great value by Chicago standards; well worth it for native Hoosiers. Mild sauce is almost a barbecue sauce, but tasty nonetheless.... More

This is the kind of food perfect for that deadly hangover... way too greasy otherwise. The shrimp are succulent and plump, but they should have a steamed version. Everything in this place is fried!
