Ok, since I'm new in the area, what's the best way to get to this place in Gary from, lets say Calumet Avenue and 294? Is that the place by the train station in Miller close to Miller Bakery Cafe?
Thanx for the recommendation, btw.
Seriously, don't go there.
Cal City had a wonderful place called "Pepino's." They have since relocated in Schererville - I believe off of Indianapolis Blvd. This place is notorious for real egg & green pepper sandwiches during lent. He also sells his Italian sausage raw if you want to cook it yourself. If you buy within, he has the best of Italian Beef Sandwiches, Italian Sausage, and a small deli (in Cal) for notorious potato salad, etc.
I've bought and cooked his Italian sausage for many gatherings...he is the best and I miss him...but he's not far from me in Hammond, considering it's just as far going to Cal City.
What a loss for Cal City, but the neighborhood is for fried chicken now and fast food.
He must be doing well out there....I have noticed Capri Imports moved to Dyer from Sibley, in Cal City - they are great for picking up deli imported Italian cheeze, groceries, etc. I think they now have a restaurant area within the store.
They were really great for genuine, Italian imports...the deli was great.
Falvo's (I think that was the name), used to be a big hit with our half-Italian side of the family. They were in Chicago Heights, IL, and since retired, went out of business. They had the best Italian sausage - fennel seed and all. We used to make Italian sausage by hand....but since my ex-mom died, we haven't made it....
So, I know good Italian roast beef sandwiches and Pepper & Eggs sandwiches, and Pepino's in Schererville is worth the trip...try it. You won't want to go anywhere else....
