Smoke is mysterious, fire is uncertain, and pit men are expensive. So the mystery, uncertainty, and expense of taking the chance to make great barbecue is being replaced by the quantifiable methods of always making pretty good 'cue.

dbarrow's Review of Angelos

Joint: 
  • Braunschweiger: It’s cold, but tasty.
  • Sides: Excellent tater salad and slaw, good ranch beans. The slaw is magical.
  • Atmosphere: Lots of dead animals and wood. This place is a regular stop. Angelo Rd/Street sign in the middle of the floor. Picture of the duke. Much older crowd in here, this where Gramps hangs out. Large schooners of ice cold beer.
  • Brisket: Perfect!!
  • Spare Rib: Very tender, but something’s a little off.
  • Sausage: Needs better, fuller taste, but excellent texture with a tender casing.
