Hash House A Go Go is a popular brunch location on the Strip located at the Imperial Palace. They also have another location off-Strip which is rated a bit higher. I know why. We arrived at Hash House, and there was a pretty long line. Our wait started off bad. They truly offer terrible service. First they took the number of people in our party down wrong, and wrote only 2 people (we had 4). So when they called us up, they said we had to wait longer because they wrote down for 2. At this point we were waiting over 30 minutes. By the time we got in it was 45 minutes, and to our surprise, there were a lot of empty tables. Once seated, it even took longer for someone to help us out, but once she did she was really kind, but really slow, and hardly checked up on us. We placed our orders, and guess what, another long wait. I don’t know why the cooks were slow, or if they are always like this. We waited close to 45 minutes for our food, and it wasn’t just us, we saw a lot of angry faces.
My dish was pretty good actually. Being that I’m obsessed with Goat Cheese, I ordered the Sundried Tomato, Basil & Goat Cheese scramble ($11.95). It came with crispy potatoes, fruit, and a biscuit. I loved the scramble. All the flavours went together nicely. There were a lot of sundried tomatoes, and a lot of goat cheese. The portion didn’t look as big as I had hoped when I started, but I was full by the end of it (partially because I had already lost most of my appetite from the long wait!). The potatoes were over cooked, and had a bit of a burnt flavour to it. I wasn’t really happy with them. I’m not really a biscuit person, and I didn’t like this one either, as it wasn’t very buttery. It was very dry and crumbled really easily.
Beipas ordered the Chicken and Waffles, which was on posters in the waiting area of the restaurant. It was kind of a disappointment. The chicken was cooked until rock hard. The breading was way too hard, though the chicken inside wasn’t overcooked or stringy. The waffles were also a bit different, and more savoury than sweet, and she didn’t enjoy it. One friend ordered the Roasted Chicken, garlic, onions, asparagus, and rosemary hash ($12.95), and he was really happy with it. It was served with 2 eggs, fruit and a biscuit. The other friend ordered the Mango Coconut Pancake ($8.95), and this pancake was huge, and pretty thick. It was really fluffy. I’m not sure if it was extra, but his dish came with eggs and sausage. I had a bit of the flapjack and I remember liking it, as I could taste and feel the chunks of mango and coconuts.
One other thing that ticked me off is that a mom and her baby were seated before the rest of her party arrived, and the hostess had the nerve to ask her to get up from her table and sit in the waiting area until the rest of her party came. There were tons of extra tables! Our brunch turned into about a 2.5 hour meal. Though my scramble was really good, I wouldn’t recommend coming here at all. In fact, I’d say stay away unless you have hours to kill for a one course meal and a lot of patience. That’s how bad the wait and service was. Most of the food was OK, but the experience was awful. Definitely should be changed to Hash House A Slow-Slow. Is the other location as slow? If you like what you see on the menu, I’d recommend trying the other location first.
