Located just a few blocks away from our recent stop at P&T Restaurant, Angelo’s Family Restaurant sits on Winton Road just south of the Cross County overpass. 5 members of the chili team ventured north to Finneytown to give the chili at Angelo’s a try. Parking is abundant and convenient and the restaurant itself is spacious with copious numbers of booths and tables lined up amid the homey decor. The wide-ranging menu includes chili, lunch sandwiches, home-style comfort food, a large number of dessert options and chili. Everyone loaded up on their usual, and you’ll find the results below.Overall Rating:
Angelo’s wins an award for the slowest chili lunch yet on the tour. It’s been several years since my last visit for that reason alone. With a full menu geared toward the 5:00 dinner crowd, Angelo’s sets a pace all of their own. The chili was meaty and hot, but lacked flavor. Angelo’s breakfast and other Greek fare are better options.
The food was pretty good. The portions were of good size. The prices were reasonable, but pricey on the pie. The staff was very friendly, but moving on their own pace. A little bit of a geographical challenge for a regular lunch stop, but if you’re in the area, it’s worth a visit.
I was really quite surprised with the quality of chili here. The bowl of chili was meaty and flavorful and I happily slurped down the last bits of it. The coneys were nicely presented with a good ratio of dog/chili/cheese/onion/mustard all set in a soft bun. Service was slow and scattershot, but once the chili arrived, I was a happy camper.
