About
In 1974 Mike Buda, Holly's founder, opened his doors after many years in the hospitality industry at other area restaurants. It wasn't long before word spread that the food was delicious and reasonably priced, the service was excellent, and Holly's became a favorite choice for casual family dining. Keeping the business in the family, Mike Buda's daughters, Jennie and Michele, spent time helping their dad at work during their youth. Following their graduation from Purdue University's Hospitality and Tourism school, Mike turned the daily operations of the restaurant over to his energetic and capable daughters. The restaurant serves traditional American cuisine, with select Mexican specialties

Always go to Holly’s in Michigan City, Indiana when we are in the area. Love their Mexican pizza they make, even though it’s not on the menu. Spicy and perfect. Popcorn on every table is a plus for my husband who is a popcorn junkie.
