Angelo’s Burgers

Who can resist this huge statue of a slightly balding, smiling gentleman holding a cheeseburger and a frosty cold one? He reminds me a bit of the old Bob’s Big Boy statue’s that seemed to be almost everywhere you went in the 70’s and 80’s. He too was holding a cheeseburger.

 

 

 

The view is scenic, the seating is plentiful, the staff is very friendly and helpful with questions and the portions are big enough for at least two meals I think. It’s a walk up counter, you order, get a number, then they call you when it’s done. Soft drinks, water are self service. There is a seating area outside by the irresistible statue which is a nice option for a warm sunny day. The interior decoration is very interesting and eclectic. A few large screen televisions can be viewed while you eat. 

 

The turkey burger was very tender, juicy and flavorful which I love because it’s so hard to find a good turkey burger. People usually just cook them for too long and they get all dried out. Not a problem here! The bun was warm and toasty, the lettuce, tomato and onion were very fresh and the cheese was delicious. The only problem was this burger is huge! Glad I came really hungry so I could finish well, most of it. 

 

The zucchini was crispy, juicy and sliced a bit thin. The flavor was good, I just prefer really thick cut zucchini because it’s juicier. The portion size is big so I had a lot to take home. 

Definitely will be back to try out the famous burritos and perhaps a beer as well.

    That is a really cool statue! I agree that batter to zucchini ratio was too high. I get big fat fried zucchini every year at the Del Mar Fair. 🙂

      Thanks! Yes I know about your Del Mar Fair zucchini, but is it the best? Or top 5?

        They are the best! There use to be one place that was better but they went out of business.
