Places to Eat & Drink: Pizza
Every town has an old-school pizza shop that the locals swear by.
For Wilkes-Barre, Angelo’s Pizzeria is a go-to place for the best pizza. They’ve been tossing dough since 1960. Their fame has even spread beyond NEPA, and they’ve filled takeout orders for Bon Jovi and ZZ Top.
Other pizza places might offer side dishes and Italian food, but Angelo’s doesn’t bother with the frills. Instead, they put all of their energy into making their iconic pizza. You can choose between regular and thick crust. They also make vegan pizzas and cauliflower crust.
Don’t forget to order the sweet sauce! The legendary sauce originated when one of the employees made it for her son by adding a few ingredients to the original sauce. It quickly caught on, and Angelo’s fans pack the restaurant to get their sweet sauce fix.
Angelo’s Pizzeria is cash only. A plain 16-inch pie costs less than ten bucks, so you can feed a crowd without breaking the bank.
