Angelo’s Pizza in Baltimore boasted “the world’s biggest slice” on its sign. Alas, that questionable claim is no longer true; as the Baltimore Sun reports, the Hampden pizza place has been evicted from its Keswick Street building, and has no plans to re-open.

According to the pizzeria’s owner, the landlord booted Angelo’s out after the two sides couldn’t agree on a lease. In the middle of business hours, the sheriff came to kick out customers and padlock the front door. Not exactly a smooth exit.

Did I mention that Angelo’s owner’s name is Angelo Pizza? Yes, you read that right. (And it causes all sorts of amusing lines in the Baltimore Sun’s article: “This time, Pizza said, it looks like the end of Angelo’s.”) In any case, we send our best wishes to Mr. Pizza — with a name like that, I sincerely hope he finds a new place to sling his slices.

    • That was a memory I had with my mom, I feel like a part of me is gone. I will surely miss Angelo’s , but more importantly miss another memory of my mother. Rip mommy I will never forget the memories I had , thank the god above my babies got the chance to know what a great place Angelo’s was. Gone but memories not forgotten .:(

  1. Classic story of a small businessman vs the greedy landlord.(most mom and pop’s can’t afford corporate franchise rent)
    I loved the steaks and subs from Angelo’s.Always fresh and
    very affordable.
