Established in 2015, Angus & Co recently opened a branch at North Adelaide's Meridian Hotel. This restaurant specialises in serving a wide range of Australian style dishes. While it is not listed on their main menu, one of the notable dishes available is their Angus Tower, which consists of a platter of sliders, wings and various sides that are perfect for sharing with a small group of friends.
The pizzas offered here are quite unique in using ingredients that you would not normally see on pizzas - things such as Southern Fried Chicken and maple bacon. The Angus Pizza we chose had pieces of Angus steak that was cooked just right with a bit of sweetness from the maple bacon. A drizzling of BBQ sauce added a smoky taste to the pizza and a topping of salad with ranch dressing tied everything together.
The Angus Beef Burger that we ordered had a generous sized juicy beef patty with enough char-grilled flavour to make eating it an enjoyable experience. The use of maple bacon gave the burger a smoky-sweet flavour, which was balanced out by the lettuce and tomato. Accompanying the burger was crisp, fluffy chips and some tangy tomato relish to dip the fries into.

While we thought their Fried Chicken Wings tasted a bit ordinary, their Buffalo Wings were very pleasurable to eat. They had a delightful spicy taste with a hint of sourness. The Buffalo Wings came with a blue cheese aioli to dip the wings into temper their spiciness, and crisp sticks of celery. If you dine here on Sundays, both wings are offered at 50 cents each, allowing you to order a mixture of whatever wings you desire.

If you feel that their regular burger is a bit intimidating for you, you can choose to order one of their sliders. The Duo of Sliders we chose had a good amount of succulent pulled pork that was partnered well by the crisp coleslaw. A slightly bigger version of the dish which features a South Fried Chicken and an Angus Cheeseburger slider is also available for those that like a bit more variety.

To accompany our main dishes, we decided to order their Onion Rings and Sweet Potato Fries. The Sweet Potato Fries had the slightly sweet flavour that we desired and the Onion Rings were very well done with the crisp battering coating contrasting well with the onions.

While we did not try any of them, some of their desserts sounded quite delicious. Peanut Butter Jelly Waffle Stack and New York Baked Cheesecake are two of the interesting ones that caught our attention. The ambience of the restaurant was very cosy and the place was pretty crowded with hotel guests and walk-in diners like us.
