Hash House A Go Go: “Twisted Farm Food”
Buttermilk biscuits. Fried chicken. Smoked bacon. Served on plates the size of the state of Indiana. Hash House A Go Go is the creation of executive chef Craig “Andy” Beardslee and former musician and San Diego restaurateur Johnny Rivera. The menu marries the heart the Midwest with mad flare.
“Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, Hash House A Go Go puts a unique spin on each meal of the day. We keep food fun while pulling from the experiences of farm fresh agriculture, livestock and old recipes with a twist. Casual by day, we serve up flapjacks and farm benedicts for breakfast. Lunch offers our famous Hash House stuffed burgers among many other great farm fresh classics. For dinner, we offer upscale dining in a relaxed atmosphere. Dinner dishes range from homemade chicken pot pie to braised slow-cooked barbecue pork ribs to a 14 oz. New York steak.”
Critics, such as Martha Stewart, Las Vegas Weekly, and The New York Post, have enjoyed dining at Hash House A Go Go. The original location is in San Diego, California. Other locations include Las Vegas, Nevada, Chicago, Illinois, Orlando, Florida, Mohegan Sun, Connecticut, Reno, Nevada, and Plano, Texas.
1. Hash House A Go Go at The LINQ is located at 3535 Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, Nevada. This is a walkable distance from other hotels and casinos, such as The Cosmopolitan. From further distances use a taxi or car service.
2. Peak times occur during week days and nights, especially weekend nights and after shows within the casinos. Make reservations to ensure a table. Hash House A Go Go is a top spot to dine after a late night in Vegas.
3. Share a meal. Not joke. The menu items at HHAGG are beyond generous in size. The vast majority of people do not finish their meals. Go hungry, choose an item to share with a friend or family member, and be prepared to take a box of leftovers to your hotel room if it has a refrigerator.
4. The menu at HHAGG has many tempting choices, including waffles, house hashes, farm scrambles, pancakes the size of the table, and meatloaf. The following were my favorites.
Andy's Crispy Sage Fried Chicken Salad: mixed greens, green apple, blue cheese, caramelized pecans, tomato, sage fried chicken breast and clover honey mango vinaigrette. This ample size salad and biscuit is plenty for a very famished person. Order the dressing on the side.
Sausage, Smoked Bacon, or Ham. This is a substantial meal, satisfying, and perhaps one of the few dishes made for one person to eat.
5. Many dishes are accompanied by a sprig of fresh rosemary. A few rosemary leaves in your water makes for a fragrant and flavorful drink in the desert climate. Also, it is a good idea to save the rosemary for a cocktail or cup of tea later back at your hotel room.
