These people know how to cook, but they have ABSOLUTELY NO idea how to run a business. I grew up, I mean grew up eating at Angela's. My parents went on many dates here before they had kids (going on 32yrs). So I've been to all the other locations, all are closed besides the head of the family, Maria(Central&Washington location), and her ex-husband who manages the Greenwich location. First off-their hours are completely inconsistent.He has had Melony, the server, employed for many years. He needs to let her go. She never looks the part in which I want someone serving my food to look. She always looks unkempt and unclean EVERY time we visit. We have stopped eating here since her service(lack there of) is ridiculous. She takes forever to deliver your food out in a normal manner. I'd get my food, then about 15 mins later my husband got his. We saw his food up there on the table so we knew it was ready. This situation has happened a lot. She acts extremely worn out and overworked if you ask for a refill or to-go container. This has happened on countless occasions and there are only about 5 other people in the restaurant at these times. So it's not like she is overly busy. I've know the family so long that I felt comfortable doing this since we had someplace to be, but I actually was tired of waiting for a to-go container that I finally got up and grabbed myself one. Never is that acceptable. I don't go to Olive Garden and ask for a to-go container and 15-20mins later still not have one or have to get up and get my own. My sister and I both ate the same taco dinner and had water and had two baskets of chips. Melony had to split the charges for the chips since she said they charge now. Fine, no problem. She gave us our tickets and both amounts were different. My sisters was higher then mine. So we asked considering our meals were identical. She just split it having my sister take the most of it. She had absolutely no excuse why she did this and so we just paid and left. This was one of the last times my family and I have eaten here. Also her daughter who just had a baby, brought the newborn to the restaurant and she came around to show us, well we were eating. Maybe it would have been appropriate after we ate, but now she actually has the guts to put the baby carrier right in the middle of our table! It was just too stupid(lack of better words). But to me the odd hours & mainly the staff are driving customers away, that includes customers that go as far back as 25plus years!
It took me 13 days, but I finally had both Italian Beef and Italian Sausage at Big B's Beef, just north of 47th and Seneca. It was excellent. I've been disappointed about a lack of Chicago-style food in Wichita, but it's finally here. The beef was juicy. The sweet peppers were excellent. I had my Italian Sausage with red sauce. Wow! It's all made to order, so it takes a bit longer, but it's worth the wait. The wonderful fries are hand cut. Prices are reasonable. If you love Chicago and Chi-town food, let's do our part to patronize this business. I'll be sure to take my wife back for a Gyros, pronounced YEE-ROS, and THEY HAVE THE ROTISSERIE, the only place in town I know of. I haven't had the Chicago-style dog yet, but I have great expectations. They have free delivery for the Southwest Side.
