A highly-rated roast beef joint on the South Shore is expanding to a second location closer to Boston.
A poster on the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page mentions (via a Facebook post from the place) that Angelo's Famous Roast Beef in Plymouth is opening a new location in Stoughton, with the Main Street shop saying that "For more than 5 decades this town was well known for a delicious roast beef sandwich. The place was called Murmacs. Well a new sheriff is coming to town." The post from Angelo's is referring to a beloved roast beef spot called Mur-Mac's which closed more than 10 years ago, and while posters have been wondering if Angelo's could be moving into that Park Street space, it will apparently be opening somewhere on Washington Street instead.
Angelo's Famous Roast Beef has received high marks since opening, drawing comparisons to the best roast beef joints on the North Shore (which is better known for roast beef than the South Shore); a boston.com readers' poll from last year included it among the best of the best along with Harrison's in North Andover, Nick's in Beverly, Billy's in Wakefield, Mike's in Everett, and Bill & Bob's in Salem and Woburn.
