My wife and I stopped for breakfast and were pleased. The service was fast and friendly as soon as we walked in the door. The food was good, not great, but very good and plenty of it.

The decor is about the best thing going for Peggy Sue's...lots of old license plates and a general auto theme. The place was cold, the service was incredibly slow and the food was marginal. My Italian beef was good. The vegetable soup wasn't very hot...More

Interesting little old place right on the corner near the railroad tracks. Traditional breakfast items on the menu, and some pretty original ones too. Huge murals on the inside and outside walls - see who you recognize.... Marilyn, Dino, Buddy Holly, and oh, so many...More

Nothing fancy here. Located right in downtown Chesterton - you can rub elbows with the locals if you're so inclined. Basic menu of average quality. Really nice staff. You go this restaurant for the convenience ... take a walk across the street after eating, around...More
