Angelo's Diner


Walking into Angelo's Diner, it's hard to believe that Toby's Sports Bar used to be in this same spot. Gone are the multiple televisions blaring sporting events, the jukebox, and even the local sports memoribilia. In its place is a cool green theme that includes modern art on the walls. The changes undergone extend to the menu as well.

Among many of the well-priced meal options are chicken parmesan ($8.95), chicken philly sandwiches ($7.99), authentic gyro's ($5.99) and gigantic cheeseburgers ($6.45, add 50 cents for bason). Breakfast is available all day (it costs a dollar extra per meal if ordered after 11am) and choices extend from omelets (ranging from $3.50 to $5.95) to corned beef hash ($4.95).

The sign on their window boasts of having the best corned beef in town, and I agree with that. You can order it with eggs, toast and home fries, or in a three-egg omelet, which also comes with home fries and toast.

After having eaten there several times, I highly recommend the crazy omelet. It consists of ham, sausage, bacon, green peppers, mushroom, tomatoes and american and swiss cheese inside of three eggs. At least, that's the what the menu says. Judging by the sheer size of it, I'd estimate that it takes something more along the lines of 4-5 eggs! Like all of the omelets on the menu, for $5.49 you also receive a large portion of home fries, and your choice of an english muffin or toast. The home fries are perfect, which is not a word I throw around lightly. They are crispy in spots, and just-soft-enough in others, exactly what you need to start your day off right.

If you aren't in the mood for breakfast, go for a gyro or the chicken parmesan. The gyro comes in thick pita bread wrapped around well-spiced lamb and coated in traditional cucumber yogurt sauce. It is accompanied by french fries. You need to bring your appetite before tucking into a chicken parmesan dinner. The thick slab of boneless, breaded chicken breast is served alongside pasta and garlic bread. It's coated in mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce, and a salad comes on the side.

With its many menu options, you could eat at Angelo's Diner once a day for a month and never have the same thing twice. And you'll walk away happy and full each time.
