Let’s review Hash House A Go Go!
Started in 2000 in San Diego, CA, Hash House A Go Go has grown to ten locations around the country that now include such other states as Connecticut, Florida, New Jersey and Nevada. It’s a restaurant that’s been featured on shows like Man vs. Food, Rachel Ray’s Rachael’s Vacation and The Martha Stewart Show. The American restaurant chain serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, and offers farm fresh southern comfort food with a funky, modern twist.
While in Las Vegas, we visited the location inside The Linq. It’s located towards the back, where you can take the escalators upstairs to the restaurant. We arrived for breakfast and to no surprise, the restaurant was packed.
Once seated, we all looked at the menu and tried to order something different.
We all stuck with breakfast and went with the following dishes:
- Chorizo Hash which came with jalapenos, cheddar cheese and fresh tomato. The hashes were served in an old-fashioned cast iron skillet on a bed of crispy fried potatoes with two eggs, a homemade biscuit, fresh fruit garnish and finished with their signature rosemary garnish.
- Blueberry lemon glaze waffle
- Biscuits and sausage gravy
- Andy’s safe fried chicken Benedict. This was the dish featured on Man vs. Food. It had fresh spinach, hickory smoked bacon, market tomato, griddled mozzarella, chipotle cream and scrambled eggs on a fresh split biscuit with griddled mashed potatoes and a fresh fruit garnish.
The dishes were larger than they appeared in the pictures. I had the Andy’s safe fried chicken Benedict, and we all thought that dish was enough to feed the four of us. Often times, the popular big city attractions get lots of publicity, but lack in quality. That wasn’t the case here. The food was fantastic and well-received by my friends. I loved everything about my dish. There was so much going on, but it all balanced each other out. The chipotle cream offered a nice bit of heat and I found myself dipping as much food as I could into it. The mashed potatoes had a homemade, thicker texture I’ve grown to love. I made it a point to grab the bacon out by hand and eat it caveman style. There seriously wasn’t one part I disliked.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t talk about my very first time at Hash House A Go Go. I went overboard and ordered the Andy’s World Famous Safe Fried Chicken and Waffles. It was two sage fried chicken breasts piled high on top with their hickory smoked bacon waffle tower, hot syrup reduction and fried leeks.
I was by myself and had many onlookers as the dish was brought to me. People started making bets on how much of it I’d finish. I ate all the chicken and two waffles before calling it a night. There’s just something about chicken and waffles that always calls my name.
All in all, this is one of those restaurant chains that lived up to the hype for me.
