Angelo's Chip Shop: 3.9/5
$4.20 ($4.75 with taxes)
$5.10 ($5.75 with taxes)
Two weeks ago I walked in and was greeted by Angelo like a long lost friend even though we'd never met. I took one look at the burger patty covered grill, and the stools lined up along the counter across from the stainless steel milkshake machine, and I knew Burger Club had to dine here!
We got there early and beat the rush, but by the time we left people were waiting for our tables. Angelo greeted each of us as we came in, his wife Susan took our orders, and his mom Helen made sure the tables were all set up and clean and we had everything we needed. It’s truly a family restaurant! Angelo’s father, John, opened the diner as the North End Chip Shop in 1974 but later renamed it to Angelo’s. Angelo has been running it since 1990. John is still a regular visitor at supper time.
As I was ordering and trying to decide if it was a single or double patty day, my gaze took in the grill that was already loaded up with patties. I could see they were thin, so a double it was! It was only $6.20 (the $7 menu price includes taxes), so why *wouldn't* you order a double, bacon cheeseburger? The best part of the patty is the grill seared crust and with a double, your patty has four sides!
Dave wrote“I am used to not being able to finish, but quantity of burger and fries was perfect.” Like V.J.’s, Dari-Wip, Mrs. Mike's and Burgerbend, Angelo’s has a chili sauce that makes the whole burger package come alive. Make sure you ask for chili!
