I could end the blog here and those that have been there would get it but don’t worry, I won’t :))))
I rarely read reviews on yelp, yellow pages, or the like because I believe that there are many types of reviewers but I will give you my TOP 3……I absolutely take friends and family’s advice on places to go but in the end, I would rather make up my own mind………Which “reviewer” are you?
1.) “1st reviewer” – never, never, never trust the 1st 2 reviews of ANYTHING!!!!! Places/things/restaurants need reviews to get patrons but until somebody other than the “1st reviewer” goes they can’t get REAL reviews. So, without a doubt the 1st 2 reviews for a new place HAS to be their mom/grandma or aunt…….
“We arrived and were instantly greeted by this handsome man who looks just like his mom, uhhhh….. I mean he was just handsome. We ordered the sushi served table side and when it arrived there was broken glass all over it. I thought it was slightly odd but the broken glass added a crunchy texture to the otherwise brilliantly prepared raw fish by my handsome son….I mean by Beauregard”
2.) The “ex” reviewer – This reviewer doesn’t care anything about the ambiance, food or anything else, they just want their “ex-boyfriend/girlfriend” to know that they are happy without them……
“The sushi was average at best but what made this place amazing was my other half got down on one knee in front of everyone else there (despite the fact that it was only our 2nd date) and sang Bruno Mar’s song “I think I want to marry you”….Some said that they heard dogs howling but I am certain they are just jealous that I was the center of attention……Would maybe go back…..”
3.) The “nothing is ever going to be right” reviewer…….We all have at least one of these family members or friends in our lives. You may not openly admit it but you know you do……
“I went to my son’s restaurant last night and despite the fact that I loaned him almost 20 thousand dollars for this risky (never going to work restaurant) the parking was terrible!!!!! We couldn’t park in the front space because of some silly handicap law but thankfully we got the space right next to it…..we still had to walk further to the door, but we made it inside. We weren’t greeted in the first 2 seconds but were seated fairly quickly at the chef’s table. (The server said something about my son wanting to make sure no one heard me. Well I’m pretty sure he said that my son wanted me to be close to him so that he could hear me but whatever) The fish was raw and the rice was sticky….there was something green and grassy tasting and I could swear that the table behind us said it was “seaweed” but I am sure that my son wouldn’t serve that……I raised him better than that”
There are many more types but I am about to violate my promise to myself to not be long-winded so with all of that said, I will leave you with my review and you can decide which kind of reviewer I am 🙂
I have heard that Hash House A Go Go is normally VERY busy so we went today (Friday) at around 10:30am (after we picked Jeremy up from work) and there were a few people in there but we basically had the area we were in to ourselves. I ordered the chicken and waffles with fried leeks (and maybe a house mimosa – C’Mon – you know you are into day drinking too). Scott ordered the 2 egg breakfast with a pancake and Jeremy ordered the grilled cheese. To say that the portions are HUGE is an understatement….They literally could feed a family of 5 but the chicken and waffle was REALLY REALLY good!! The chicken has to be soaked in buttermilk because it was moist and yet crispy at the same time and the waffles were crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside…..fluffy pillows of goodness…..the syrup was pure maple goodness and the bacon….well what can I say? Bacon makes everything better…..long story short? I would absolutely recommend this restaurant if you haven’t eaten in approximately 5 days and even if you have….It is WELL worth the time!!!!
