SAN ANGELO, Texas — Three restaurants in San Angelo opened their doors and welcomed customers in Sept. 2022.


RJ BBQ opened and added a third BBQ location at Sunset Mall to kick off the month of Sept. After 22 years of serving San Angelo, Roman Thomas Sr. decided it was time to add a restaurant on the east side of town since other locations are located around the north side. Owner Thomas shared with Concho Valley Home Page staff that there is also RJ3 Chicken Shack, making the new location the fourth RJ restaurant.

Thomas says that adding this location took out two birds with one stone – Citizens of San Angelo on this side of town wanted RJ BBQ’s food and the staff at Sunset Mall would have more of a selection of food.

Customers will be able to buy RJ BBQs ribs, chicken and sausage Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. RJ BBQ will also be open on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The restaurant will be closed Sunday.

Fro-Yo and Sweets Downtown

Eat all the fro-yo and sweets, and drink all the sugar drinks you can at Fro-Yo and Sweets Downtown in Downtown San Angelo. This store offers frozen yogurt along with individually wrapped and bulk candy. Customers can also enjoy their candy slushes, chai and Frapaccino’s.

Sweets and treats are not the only things you will be able to find here. A 12-foot-long table showcasing candy wrappers and fun murals and paintings from local artists is on display. In the new sweets shop, people will be able to find a ‘Made in San Angelo’ section featuring the store’s merchandise.

Fro-Yo and Sweets Downtown is open Wednesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday the store is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. On Sunday customers can get their sweets from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m at 17 W. Beauregard Ave.

Chipotle Mexican Grill
