Lake County, Indiana

Burch's is the western-most original diner that we found on Route 6. Located in Gary, it features what must be a Chicago favorite, the Maxwell Street Polish. (July 1999 photo)

A major entanglement of east-west highways can be found skirting the southern tip of Lake Michigan, including federal Routes, 6, 12, 20 and 30, and Interstates 80, 90, and 94. Here, just east of Gary, Business Route 6 is added to the mix. (July 1999 photo)
