Since 1976 Beggars Pizza has been baking up a wide variety of Pizzas. Choose from Deep Dish, Thin Crust or Stuffed styles. We have a wide variety of toppings that we LAY ON THICK!
We heard about the Chicago specialty "deep dish" pan pizza, and tried it at Beggars. We are pleasantly surprised how deep the fillings/toppings are, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It has so much ingredients that a large pan pizza is more the enough for the whole family.

My husband decided to treat me to dinner at Theo’s restaurant. Dining at this establishment was a first for us both. His choice was an excellent one. We had a 6:00pm reservation, thank goodness because the wait time for walk-ins was an hour to hour and a half.
The ambience was romantic and quaint. The Valentine’s Day menu had excellent options that made choosing difficult. We decided on the following:
Appetizers- Oyster Rockefeller
Soup- My husband had the cheddar broccoli soup. I had the lemon rice soup
Main Course- My husband had the 18 ounce New York strip steak and twice baked potato. I had the petite filet mignon, 4 fried shrimp, twice baked potato, and vegetable medley.
Dessert- My husband had the carrot cake. I had the raspberry cheesecake.
Drinks- Tickled Pink and lemonade
The food was seasoned just right, the steaks were tender and cooked to perfection, and the drinks were mixed just right (bar tender was awesome). Everything was perfect. The plates are portioned just right for the price. The menu was reasonably priced.
Make sure you come with an empty stomach, because you definitely will leave with full, satisfied, and with a to go bag. We will definitely dine here again.

We are proud to offer authentic Neapolitan pizza here in North-West-Indiana. Our Staff has been trained by an Italian Master Pizza Chef with over 30 years of expertise. The 19th Century recipe begins with pizza dough that is made with Imported Italian flour, fresh yeast, and sea salt. Next, Imported Italian San Marzano tomatoes, plus fresh herbs and spices, are blended into a flavorful pizza sauce. Finally, Fior di Latte Mozzarella or Imported Italian Buffalo Mozzarella melts to perfection as the pizza is charred in our 900 degree Stone Wood Burning Oven. This 19th Century Italian tradition is a very meticulous process which results in a Neapolitan pizza bursting with intense fresh flavor.
I think this pizza is better than the well known, highly rated establishments in the Chicagoland area. My wife and I were introduced to Giuseppe's by her sister a little over 4 years ago. We have to have this pizza every time we visit her in Schererville which, unfortunately, is only 4 or 5 times a year. If Giuseppe's opened a restaurant in the northern suburbs of Chicago, the visits would increase tenfold along with my waistline, I'm sure. On this last visit, we sampled the meatballs and sauce. The owner explained that everything was freshly made. We all agreed that the it was out of this world. During our next visit, we can't wait to try several of the dinners that come with meatballs which we should have tried long before this. But, with limited time, we always order our thin crust pizzas to go and pick them up at the very convenient back window. By the way, we get a family sausage and mushroom and a large spinach and mushroom to ensure leftovers. Though, on this last visit, we are left with slim pickens thanks to me. What can I say? It's that good.

Was in Munster for work and wanted something quick for breakfast. Nothing better than a donut!
I was pleasantly surprised with delicious donuts! These were fresh, tasted outstanding and there was plenty of variety! The staff working at Munster Donuts were super friendly too!

Trolling the Southlands for a late lunch, my phone led a jaunt East across the border, into Indiana. Never off-put by a humble storefront (best recent BBQ reviewed at a GAS STATION in MO!), I sidled up to the counter....
A very friendly young lady ran me down the daily specials, while a Q-master dude detailed the chili's contents. So, a pound of tips, sides of chili and curly fries (arrived crisp as ordered); we were off to the races.
Unless pulled hot from the smoker and chopped to order, tips are tricky - falling below oven temp they tend to harden and dry out quickly, if not sauced. These were neither, which might have dismayed some. They were, however, really well smoked and tasted richly of rub. Three puddles of their "not killer hot" sauces gave just enough juice as I dissected the pieces. There was minimal fat, and virtually no cartilage. The trim was excellent!
The chili was also noteworthy for multi-textured presentation of meats - one can easily tell what was being eaten. Just spicy enough, served hot. My only criterion for curly fries is that they not flop around - these were crisp and fresh. For a joint with no stove (only smokers and fryers), they're doing OK. If I'd wanted brisket, however - my usual requirement is a grilling and slight blackening treatment of the slices. Same true for hot links - a split and grilled presentation is best, I say!
Wouldn't have minded some cooked greens on the menu, too - but after all, this is NORTHERN Indiana! Overall, pretty well done for 20-somethings..... but room for a tweak or two.

Had high hopes for my visit to this brew pub but came away confused. The beer list is extensive (obviously, as it is attached to a well established brewery) but the cliche list of funky names masks the essence of the beer offerings.
That aside, the food selections were eclectic to say the least. The Scotch egg arrived at room temperature...not a great way to have sausage and eggs. Other selections were piping hot, giving the impression that food prep is irregular or careless.
Service was spotty and the heavy metal music along with clown horror movies playing on screens throughout the dining area left something to be desired.

Came here with family based on local recommendation. Long time establishment, and their food and service tell the story. Both are great! Really enjoyed our visit. 6 of us ordered different items, and some of their famous onion rings. The onion rings were super thin and extremely crispy. Perfection! The dessert of the vanilla ice cream and orange sherbet twist brought me back to my childhood love of Dreamsicles. Very enjoyable visit.

The store on Ridge Road in Munster has the rudiest clerks. I live closer to that store but will go to the store on 45th because the clerks are nicer!! They use to have an employee named Barbara who was nice and friendly but for some reason they did not like her so they forced her out!! Probably didn't like her for it made them look worse!! I have run into former employees who agree with me about Barbara and how rude and nasty the other employees were. I do not have to put up with rudiness.

When one steps into Gayety Candy and Ice Cream store the wonderful aroma of chocolate is the first thing you notice. They have been a family owned business for 3+ generations and still hand make their delicious pieces of chocolate by hand. In the summertime their ice cream with Gayety's homemade ice cream is a super treat, not just for warm weather actually but year round. Have a sweet tooth? Then you have to check out Gayety's Candy/Ice Cream Store with plenty of seating to enjoy your treats.
