Angelo’s in the Gap will be celebrating their one-year mark as part of Cumberland Gap’s business climate. Their success has been driven by hard work, dedication and business principles founded on family values.
The quaint setting of the Gap provides an interesting atmosphere for the restaurant as it is set in a historical hardware building. Formerly known as Webb’s, this once ‘country kitchen’ has new life with several varieties of gourmet pizzas, pastas and salads.
Much of the historical feel has been kept intact with the original hardwood floors and a horse trough modified to be the restaurant’s fireplace. Their fireplace was also crafted to resemble the Gap’s Iron Furnace.
“It’s been a lot of work and it’s taken a lot of different people to make it work. Cooperation and communication is so important,” said Angelo’s co-owner Bo Green.
Green opened the restaurant on June 5 with family members and co-owners Kevin LaRue, and Rick and Wilma Hanson.
Angelo’s offers live, local bands a place to play their original music on Friday and Saturday nights.
“Angelo’s has brought good, quality food, a family atmosphere where people can enjoy good music as well as jobs that were needed in the area,” said Green.
Angelo’s in the Gap is located at 527 Colwyn Ave. in Cumberland Gap. They are open Monday through Wednesday from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m., Thursday from 4 p.m. until 10 p.m. and Friday through Saturday from noon until 10 p.m.
