Well, at least Gary, Indiana is still the home of the best Polish food in the whole world!
Well, I grew up in Gary, Indiana. Lived there until I graduated from Indiana University, and have lived in Denver for the past 38 years. Being of Polish extraction myself, I would have to agree that some of the best Polish food I have ever eaten was in Gary. Though it was mostly served in my and my relatives homes ! (LOL)
But , I will say this after having eaten pizza from coast to coast , some of the best pizza I ever have eaten has been in Gary, Indiana.
My wife and I had the occasion last summer to be passing through Gary. It was at lunch time, so I made it a point to head over to one of the pizza places I recalled as a teenager. It happens to be in one of the safer sections of Gary, known as Miller Beach.
Flamingo Pizza and lounge is located close to the Lake. And the pizza was as good or better than I remembered. Another thing that I liked was that they still cut the pizza into squares, rather than triangular wedges. Or in long pieces like they do at another famous Northwest Indiana pizza place.... John's
Anyway, after watching the great Gary, Indiana pizza debate on this forum for the past couple of years now, I thought I would finally add my two cents. Also suggest to anyone that has not tried a pizza from Northwest Indiana, to stop in to the Flamingo , like we did, and try it out for yourself. The Flamingo is in a safe part of the city, and the drive along the lakeshore is fun too. flamingo pizza gary indiana - Google Maps
