This is a great rrestaurant. Wednesday nights they have a great buffet with different pizzas, pasta and salads. It is always crowded, but the service is excellent. A great place to visit with family and friends.

I was very impressed with the food here. The service was prompt and efficient for our large group. This restaurant has many of the food that Stacks in Valpo has, but is quieter and less crowded.

Pesto's is a wonderful Italian restaurant that is located Valparaiso. Reasonable prices and great food. Their buffet on Wednesday nights leaves you satisfied. Their normal menu is a treat. If your mom is still around, stop in for the Mothers Day brunch!

Wednesday buffet is great for a very low price. Very busy at dinner time. Can be noisy and crowded at dinner. Vodka Chicken is their signature food and is really good but very rich.
