Hash House A Go Go: Twisted Farm Food in San Diego

You know those places that everyone tells you to go to? The ones that creep into a conversation like a secret that you can’t help but tell? Hash House A Go-Go was that for me. Everyone in my life told me how I needed to go to this famed San Diego spot that specialized in portions that could feed you for a week. So when I was in San Diego, I braved the 45-minute wait to see if it was all it was cracked up to be. Here is all the information.

  • Expect to wait a long time on the weekends
  • Prices are around 15 dollars a plate
  • Come hungry as the portions are massive
  • I wrote this in 2014
  • Location: 3628 Fifth Ave, San Diego, CA 92103

After arriving on a Sunday morning, we checked in for our hour-long wait and headed to the coffee shop next door (which is good, by the way). An hour later, we were walking back to our table.

The first thing you notice about this place is how crazy the menu is; it has everything. I mean, there was even a S’mores mocha, which was amazing. The standout on the menu was the college special though, which was literally a side of bacon and a 24-ounce bud light in a bag. They also had a BLT Bloody Mary, which came with the bread, lettuce, and tomato and the Bloody Mary in between.

I didn’t know what to pick, but luckily there were six of us, so there was a lot of sharing going on. I wish I would have known in advance how much food you get, or I undoubtedly would have shared, I don’t see how one person can eat a plate here.

I settled on the Salmon Eggs Benedict as that is one of my favorite meals, others at my table ordered everything from pancakes to griddle meals. Here is a sampling of the food.

It pains me to say this, but my excitement over the experience was slightly curbed after eating the food. Of course, it was good, but I feel the portions are more shocking than how it tastes, which was less then I expected. That being said, it was a crazy fun experience with friends, one that I have no problem recommending at least once, but for me, I will probably not wait the hour next time I am in town. I would love to know what you thought in the comments and if you have different recommendations for me of what to order.
