I was searching for a breakfast location for the family Wednesday morning while in Las Vegas recently, I used my iphone urban spoon application – I checked, breakfast, west side and spun the wheels (as we were in Vegas) and low and behold Hash House A Go Go.
A plethora of reviews poured in from local Las Vegas food sites, large portions, farm fresh food with a funky twist, and a local’s favorite. Now, as a former ‘local’ – that term is way over used and – places that tell your getting a good deal, and don’t deliver are bad mojo in my book. However, this was not one of them.
For those of you who are native to Vegas, or it has been a few years since you have been there – this place took over from the Chevys Fresh Mex – and folks there is a reason Chevys is out of business – it just isn’t good. There are times that I get sad when things go out of business – Chevys wasn’t one of them. Now, Hash House A Go Go – is something that has caught my eye, and a definite destination stop for any foodie in Las Vegas.
Hash House A Go Go isn’t that traditional hang over, special, open 24×7. It isn’t tied to the local strip for its business – well the one in the Lakes Area isn’t – and in fact their Strip Location isn’t open that much longer than the other one in Vegas. What’s nice is – its clean, its welcoming and you don’t get that stereotypical gruffness that you would get in the typical high traffic diner.
While the location sports an industrial theme with the silver cladded walls, tables and chairs – the service staff makes it very homey and you get a feel they actually want there business. While the two times I went was for breakfast – the patrons I spoke to said “HHAGG was even more famous and busy for their lunches and dinners”. Hard to imagine as Hash is their signatory namesake.
Connar got the children’s flapjack little tractor driver combo. What that entails is a smaller pancake, that only was 2x the size of his face, and one strip of bacon and a smaller egg serving.
Cindy and Aleatha ordered the Tractor Driver Combo that gives two eggs, with bacon, sausage or poatotes and 1 signature flapjact – they chose Mango Coconut. This pancake engulfed the entire plate – it was massive and both Cindy and Aleatha left food on the plate. They were seriously happy they shared.
I ordered on my two visits the Corned Beef Hash and the 2nd day the HH Famous Meatloaf. Both were amazing – However, the Corned Beef was far and away the better of the two. However, don’t kid yourself that Meatloaf hash was pretty good, its like fighting between air and water – you need both, you can’t live with out both – this Hash you have to try.
Now both Cindy and I ordered an extra order of their order of crispy potatoes – oh my gosh, you won’t need them.
Now, a little treat on the tables is their compote of fresh made jelly’s. The day with family went it was an apricot mango, the 2nd day was strawberry – yum!
HHAGG Lakes Location is closes Sunday Nights – otherwise its open 7 Mornings and Lunches & 6 nights for dinner service.
