Does anybody know who has good corned beef in Northwest Indiana? The Munster/Highland/Griffith area is preferable, but Schererville, south Hammond, and even Lansing are doable.

Of course, any and all recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance. 8)

I had a very good, but not destination-worthy, Reuben at Three Floyds. Of course, the outstanding beer menu at an ultra-cool, beneath-the-radar pub in the middle of an industrial park could push this over the line for you.

My Dad was telling me he used to get great corned beef at Ball of Fire in Calumet City.

Is that place still open?

I grew up in Hammond (actually a few blocks away from their original location on Calumet Avenue, where the Krazy Kaplans has now taken up residence,) and have to second this recommendation. The Bread Basket has been churning out fantastic sandwiches and soups for probably over 20 years now, and I'm pretty sure their breads and cookies are still all made in-house.

One tip, if you are going to hit the Bread Basket around lunch time it can get pretty busy so phone first if you're not planning to dine in.

I used to love it when my wife would eat there and bring me home a bag of the bread ends they would sell for next to nothing.The best part of a loaf of bread.

I wish they'd expand their hours. They're only open M-F 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, and I usually only eat out on Saturdays.

I'm going to get over there sooner or later, their menu looks interesting.

I'm surprised to hear that they are no longer open on Saturdays, I used to go there all the time with my mom and her bff then for lunch when I was in high school. Oy, that made me feel really old to type out...

It sounds like a phoned-in carry out order may be your best option if their hours are inconvenient for you. I also worked across the street from their current location on Indianapolis Blvd. for several years and phoned in my lunch order all the time so that I wouldn't have to brave the lines. But I still encourage you to give the Bread Basket a try, it's definitely a hidden gem with lots of yummy, freshly prepared food options on the menu.

Now open only Tuesday through Friday, 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM :( I miss the days when the owner's daughters used to work there,and the soup was included with the sammich. Still worth going there,in fact I'm going today.
