Hash House A Go Go Restaurant Review

: We are not trying to be dramatic when we tell you that the portions at Andy Beardslee's funky restaurant are monstrously big. Generosity aside, this place is pure fun. Best known as a breakfast spot, Hash House also serves up creative lunches and dinners. The sense of humor is evident in the cuisine description: "Twisted Farm Food." On a lazy Sunday, we enjoy indulging in the brown sugar-banana pancakes with apple-smoked bacon or the sausage gravy with biscuits, eggs and potatoes (mounds of them) with a BLT Bloody Mary. Lunchtime favorites are the Kokomo (griddled meatloaf, roasted tomato and smoked mozzarella on thick slabs of Amish milk bread) and the roast beef Sloppy Joe with house-made barbecue sauce, charred tomatoes and horseradish sour cream. For dinner, we lean towards the pork selections: hand-hammered pork tenderloin breaded in panko and fried crispy is a hit, as are the braised pork ribs. Andy's sage-fried chicken and bacon waffle tower is drizzled with hot maple reduction and topped with fried leeks.
