Hash House A Go Go in Plano puts a creative spin on their self-proclaimed “twisted farm food.” Known for its potato hash entrees and over-the-top meals (you’ll see why), the restaurant is the ultimate brunch destination if you’re looking for something totally out of the ordinary.Â You’ll get Southern comfort food in a whole new way here at Hash House.
The restaurant serves daily brunch (beginning at 7:30 a.m.), followed by lunch and dinner throughout the week. The weekend brunch crowd caters to groups of friends going out for aÂ hangover brunch and also families with kids. It’s a very spacious restaurant that also has a large patio, but let me tell you the weekend crowd can get veryÂ busy. (So plan to arrive earlier than you think you may need to!)
Enjoy daily happy hour from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Selected domestic beers and wines, and well cocktails are just $3 per glass, and five appetizers on the HH menu are $5 each. Appetizers include one pound of tater tots (yes, you read that right), farm fried chicken or pork tenderloin with BBQ sauce, bacon strips and mac ‘n cheese with applewood smoked bacon.
Hash House offers a variety of boozy cocktails and beers and a “soft side” menu of oversized coffees (with and without liquor), hand pressed juices, hot teas and several flavors of iced teas. The giant cup of joe you see here is the S’mores Mocha, a sweet and dreamy drink with just the right amount of chocolate and melted marshmallow as the top layer.
Found on the “hard side” menu are your signature Hash House drinks including Bloody Marys, mimosas (comes in several flavors) and other craft cocktails. You can even keep the “twisted glass” cup from some of the drinks!
Hash House, a concept originally from the West Coast, must have had Texas-sized meals in mind when planning their menu. Perhaps not BUT the meals here are grand. And since this is the brand’s first location in Texas, patrons will see Tex-Mex options throughout the menu. The food is too good to split with friends…just ask for a to-go box instead.
A cup of candied bacon was brought out to whet our appetite as we waited on our meals.
- Here’s one of the Tex-Mex influenced dishes, the Texas Ranchero. The giant dish came with scrambled eggs, small chunks of potatoes, black beans and topped with tortilla strips and sour cream. (I got the salsa on the side but you can ask them to drizzle it all over your dish.) The large piece of watermelon was a nice touch to break up the savory flavor withÂ a sweet finish. Other Tex-Mex options on the menu include: a ranchero-style Benedict, fried green tomatoes andÂ nachos.
One of theÂ popular Hash House selections shown below is the roasted chicken, fresh garlic, onions, fresh asparagus and rosemary. All Has House entrees are topped with potatoes and eggs and served with a biscuit and fruit. I love the skillet dishes since they’re so wholesomeÂ and come with a variety of items. (Again, you may need a to-go box…!)
Moving along, here’s another extravagent menu item, the Andy’s sage fried chicken. This fried chicken deliciousness comes with fresh spinach, hardwood smoked bacon, market tomato, griddled mozzarella, chipotle cream and scrambled eggs. Other meat options to choose on your Farm Benedict include smoked bacon, pork tenderloin and salmon. All benedicts are served on a split biscut with griddled mashed potatoes.
Another item you have to check out is the Flapjack with buttermilk and brown sugar banana. It. Is. Huge. You hardly need the syrup since the pancake itself is sweetened with the brown sugar.
Don’t forget the classic biscuit and gravy!
Another item worth trying is what the New York Times recommends here, the Chicken and Waffles.
