West of Waterloo lies Angie's, a family friendly restaurant that you can't help feel comfortable in. With the wooden floors and fabric covered chairs, you feel right at home. I'm glad I looked at the website before leaving or I would've driven right by. Instead of fumbling through a menu, we went on buffet night to get a taste of everything. So, these are buffet plates of the food I tried, not plates I ordered, so please excuse that they are less than pretty.
As you can see, I tried to hit the salad bar. Salad made an appearance on my plate, but what I really wanted to try was their famous Rolled Rib. When a restaurant is known for a dish, you expect it to live those expectations....sadly, this didn't. It was so dry, I couldn't finish it. The stuffing was alright, but no one enjoyed the rib.
Plate #2 consisted of vegetables au gratin, spicy vegetarian lasagna and a cabbage roll. The veggies were good. I find it hard to eat a cabbage roll that is as delicious as my grandma's, so all I can say, is that it wasn't as good as hers. They didn't serve one kind of lasagna. Every time they replaced the tray, it was a different kind. The spicy vegetable variety was more spicy than vegetable. My friends had the meat lasagna and loved it.
The dessert table was small, but full of sweetness. I chose apple crisp, chocolate cake and a mocha cake. The cakes were moist and fresh. The apple crisp looked and tasted homemade. It was even kept warm on the table.
