Self-described as “twisted farm food”, Hash House A Go Go features a crazy new take on many of the old traditional meals you’d sit down to on the farm. Are you aloud refills on the farm? Because that doesn’t seem to be the case at Hash House. The guys noticed right off the bat that most of Hash House A Go Go’s drinks don’t have free re-fills. A big no no on the Go Go’s part. We bottomless pits at Who Asked You? require an endless liquid nourishment flow when it comes to teas, coffee and sodas. Apparently only a small portion of these are free for seconds at Hash House. Speaking of drinks, Hash House also offers it’s own in house brew of beer as well as several other selections.
In terms of ambience inside the restaurant, Hash House A Go Go is very contemporary. There’s a lot of metal decor. Industrial cables, track lighting and the like. You’ll hear at the beginning of the show that the music is tolerable as well. Dennis describes it as that which is played on VH1. Not the obnoxious teeny-bopper bullshit heard at Chili’s and other places. This brings us to another point regarding the set up. Hash House is designed to accommodate a lot of people comfortably. As Dennis and Charlie comment, even if there was a large crowd in their, they’d still want to stay and hang around for some after dinner chit chat. Whereas a place like Chili’s or Applebee’s tends to be very cramped, with loud kids and crying babies. You just want to get in and get out. This is not the case at Hash House A Go Go.
X marks the spot as they say, and this is true on the tables at Hash House. When you’re first seated the napkins are arranged in a large X pattern. Perhaps a subliminal note from management that you’ve found the treasure? To make the X requires two napkins. And it just so happens there are two hosts to this show. Seated, to their amusement, at a small, intimate booth with candlelight and all! If it wasn’t for the flash recorder you’d think they were on a date.
The food arrives and the guys get to grubbin’. Dennis orders the Andy’s Sage Fried Chicken & Bacon Waffle Tower. It’s drizzled with hot maple reduction & fried leeks. Although, he consumes a good portion of the waffle before realizing it has bacon in it. He also finds that their chefs are a bit stingy with the maple reduction. He simply orders more from the “less than attentive” server. Charlie goes meatie with an order of their Famous Meatloaf. Stuffed with roasted red peppers, fresh spinach & mozzarella cheese and crowned with their signature cream sauce.
During the dinner the guys dive into conversation regarding first date restaurant selections and etiquette. This leads to a mention of a Moroccan restaurant called Marrakech. Charlie says they have belly dancers who wiggle their hips while you eat. Perhaps this is foreshadowing for a future episode of the food program?
Overall, like their previous episode, the guys are left full and satisfied. With the exception of the service this evening. They seemed busy with other duties not involving serving. And our hosts are seated near the staging area, so they’re first sight when any server comes around… This doesn’t take too much away from the general feeling that Hash House A Go Go, though slightly more expensive, is definitely worth a try and the portions match the price tags!
