2022 World Series: Houston fans heckle Philadelphia restaurants that didn’t accept Astros food requests

With the 2022 World Series moving to Philadelphia, where the Astros eat has become a source of controversy. At least one local restaurant has reportedly received backlash from Houston fans after it was unable to meet the Astros’ restaurant demand.

Angelo’s pizzeria turned down the Astros when approached for a possible catering deal. Angelo’s was initially accused of providing food to Houston, but they flatly denied that claim in an Instagram story.

After this message was posted on social media, owner Danny DiGiampietro said the restaurant immediately came under fire from Houston fans on social media. DiGiampietro told the New York Post that Angelo simply couldn’t host the Astros on such short notice.

“We have no problem cooking for anyone,” DiGiampietro said. “The problem was that it was so late. I have to be here at 3 or 4 in the morning to bake all the bread. There was just no way, so it didn’t work.

“People tell me there are stories that we left the Astros underpowered and all that, and that was not the case at all. There was no nefarious intent behind it and there was no there was no ill will.”

Once Houston fans got the store information, “all hell broke loose” for Angelo’s, according to DiGiampietro. Some Houston fans even found DiGiampietro’s address and license plate and shared them online.

Twitter user claims to be cousin of Angelo employee alleged that Astros fans called with bomb threats. DiGiampietro also claimed callers have been heckling the store for a few days now.

“There are TikTok challenges to throw cheesesteaks in my face, you win $250… Girls [working at Angelos] were saying people with southern accents were calling the phones, telling us to ‘eat st’ and order pizza,” DiGiampietro said. “It became all that, and then it got picked up by news outlets. “

Mike’s barbecue is also believed to have brought down the Astros. They were asked about the team’s catering, based on a screenshot posted by the restaurant, but the establishment explained that they would never refuse food to anyone. Instead, Houston had the wrong information and Mike directed the team to the correct restaurant.

The Astros need food after the Phillies hammered them, 7-0, in Game 3 to take a 2-1 series lead. Houston needs a win in the worst possible way on Wednesday night or the Phillies will have a chance to close the series at home on Thursday.

Game 4 begins at 8:03 p.m. ET on Fox and streaming on fuboTV (try it for free), with the Phillies putting Aaron Nola back on the mound for the start. He will face Cristian Javier of the Astros, who threw 5 1/3 shutout against the New York Yankees in his last appearance.
