Enjoyed a wonderful old fashioned breakfast with friends. So good that while my family was camping at the Indiana Dunes for the weekend we skipped making a campfire breakfast and headed into town for a Peggy Sue Breakfast!

It was very crowded on Saturday morning when nearby European Market has its location. When I got there there were 2 tables available but no chairs (!?). Eventually I got a chair. Server show up quickly but the menu was very dirty. Food I order was just average. Although my waitress was very very nice and helpful (considering she didn't... More

The menu listed a large variety of foods to choose from and the food was good. The décor was auto-related and my brother-in-law enjoyed the car logo plaques on the walls. The diner needs a good cleaning including the menus and condiments on the table and a few furniture fixes.

It's a diner. Diner food, diner decor, employee owned restaurant. We were three adults but it is definitely a family friendly restaurant. We ordered Italian beef (really a French dip), omelette and pork sandwich. Since it is only open until 3pm, it's probably known more for its breakfast. We dined for lunch. My hesitation on 4 stars is the floor... More

The food here is quite good, and quite plentiful. The place needs a cosmetic overhaul as it looks as if nothing's been replaced or fixed since the Eisenhower administration. Go for the food and wear blinders for everything else.

I had the burger because I read on TripAdvisor that they were handmade which are usually pretty good. It was a very good burger, reasonably priced. I had the tater tots which were okay - your basic tater tots. I was disappointed because I wanted a shake to go with the burger, but they were out of ice cream, which... More

We went for breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed our choice - the Omelet bowl. Service was great and our food was out to us quickly. All in all it was good small town atmosphere and great food.
