Stop 50 is the BOMB! Some of the apps are a little "bleh" but the pizza is really top nosh. They use a 25 year old sour dough starter, a super hot wood fired oven and all the finest ingredients. The pizzas are Neopolitan in style except they cook the center a little more so they aren't drooping too much when you hold a slice. I steer clear of the "wild" mushroom pizza. They appear to be nothing more than button mushrooms and they render so much water that they tend to be soggy. I think it'd make more sense for them to use a mix of good shrooms and make a ragout of sorts and put that on a pie. They really believe in just using the plain flavors of the ingredients where I would opt to season things a little more on SOME of thier pies.
My favorites are the Margharita, the Marinara, the Prosciutto which comes with rosemary and pistachio and the sausage. Those are KILLER pizzas. If you're a good eater and aren't averse to leaving with a piece or two (maybe) then I'd reccomend a pizza per person, maybe a little less. Three pizzas usually works for four people.
The ice cream is homemade as well and it too is very good. Last time I was there, (last week) we had almond and pistachio and they were both very nice.
Chris and his wife are opening a new place sometime in the next couple months on HWY 212 in Michigan City. It's called SODA DOG and they are going to be doing gourmet 100% beef hotdogs along with homemade sodas. It'll be in the old Roxanne's Drive Inn if anyone remembers that place.
These pizzas are worth a days trip to go to. It can get hectic during the summer season so I reccomend going early for dinner or go for lunch. They have both indoor and outdoor seating. Indoors it can get pretty hot in the summer if near the oven. Go take a drive, it's well worth it. There are some very interesting things not far away such as the Hesston Steam Museum. Great for kids of all ages but the ankle biters go absolutely nuts there. Very good and fun working museam open during the summer months. www.hesston.org
Otherwise, you can climb Mount Baldy and enjoy a day at the sand dunes and if you're looking for the great indoors, there is a large outlet mall. Beverly Shores Indiana, just west of Michigan City on HWY 12 is the new home of Bartlett's www.eatatbartletts.com
it's a very cool and good road house which was opened by Gary and Nicole who own Bisto 157 in Valpo and Miller Bakery Cafe in Miller Beach.
