For this week’s article we headed to North Las Vegas to Uncle Angelo’s Pizza Joint inside Jerry’s Nugget (1821 N. Las Vegas Blvd.).

I was on a mission to try the wings. It’s no secret chicken wings are my favorite guilty pleasure food. I have been in Las Vegas for 7 years now and although I have found some good wing places I haven’t found a place that equaled my favorite place back in Pittsburgh.

Anyone who is from Pittsburgh or has spent any time there knows of Quaker Steak n Lube. My favorite wing sauce is their Golden Garlic flavor and until now no one has come close.

At Uncle Angelo’s the wings came out cooked just the way I like – crispy outside but moist and juicy inside. That first bite I thought I was back in Pittsburgh. These are my favorite wings in Vegas. My problem is I don’t find myself in North Las Vegas that often, but I will find some reasons to be in this part of town for these wings.


My main entrée was a Calzone, which comes with cheese and four additional toppings. I went with pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms and onions. The calzone was huge and looked like a big pillow as the dough rose so much. The key to any good calzone starts with the dough.

They serve it with a side of marina sauce for dipping.

The sauce was very good, which will have me come back and try one of their pasta dishes. They have a deal where you can build your own dish using spaghetti, rigatoni, fettuccini, penne or bow tie pasta.

They offer five different sauces: Marina, Bolognese, Alfredo, Vodka Cream and Garlic and Oil.

The regular order is just $10 while a large is $12. You can add meatballs or sausage for $3, chicken or shrimp for $4.

In addition to good Italian dishes, pizza and wings Uncle Angelo may be best known for his bakery items.

Desserts are available both in the Pizza Joint as well as the coffee shop. You can’t walk by that dessert case without wanting something.

I was too full to have dessert there but had no problem taking a couple items home for the wife and myself.

The problem is they have so many choices. They had 6 or 7 different cheesecake flavors to choose from. A quick text to my wife Lori and I was able to take home her choice, Blueberry Cheesecake. She was very happy enjoying it that night while watching TV.

For me I went with the Chocolate Fudge Cake and being the dedicated critic, I ate my piece writing this article. If you enjoy chocolate as I do you will love this cake, which comes with a chocolate covered cherry on top.

The waitresses at Uncle Angelo’s Pizza Joint were very attentive and friendly. The food was good and reasonably priced. I give it 3.75 Forks.
