Tasting Notes: Dining — Angelo's Pizza Parlor

 Posted: 10:05 AM November 29, 2012

Angelo's Pizza Parlor

Cuisine and scene: Fans of Italian-style sandwiches have another alternative at one of the Rogue Valley's oldest pizzerias. Angelo's Phoenix location resumed preparation of the popular sandwiches — served either hot or cold with a bag of chips — earlier this month. Under the same local ownership for more than 40 years, Angelo's also is home to the 26-inch and 36-inch party pizza. The clean, pleasant dining room echoes Angelo's most recent health-inspection score of 100.

Recommended: "Afternoon special" No. 3 combines one trip though the salad bar with a fresh-made, two-topping mini pizza and medium soda; toppings, even higher-end sun-dried tomatoes and artichoke hearts, are generous; half sandwiches are as big as many restaurants' whole; the old-school salad bar has a wide variety, including chocolate pudding and red gelatin.

Alternative diets: Three vegetarian pizzas and a dozen vegetable toppings; "heart-smart" toppings noted on menu.

Beverages: Domestic and regional craft beers on tap; house wines by the glass, carafe and half-carafe; fountain sodas, lemonade, iced tea, coffee, hot tea and milk.

Price range: Pizzas, $4.75 to $68.55; chicken, $5.90 to $25.85; potatoes, $5 to $7; sandwiches, $5 to $7.50; salads, $4 to $7; add-ons and sides, 25 cents to $5.35.

Extras: Lunch specials available from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily; order party-sized pizzas 24 hours in advance; arcade games and big-screen television; add $2 for delivery (service limited to Phoenix, Talent and west Medford); no personal checks.

Serving: From 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, until 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Info: 725 N. Main St., Phoenix (in the Ray's Food Place shopping center); 541-535-1535;
