I was invited to the opening of the Hash House A Go Go Twisted Farm Food and asked Jim Rees, the owner, “What is Twisted Farm Food?”
Jim explained, “Twisted Farm Food is comfort food with a flair! When you see the food you will understand, the food goes right along with the name. We serve big portions of recognizable country comfort food.
The founding chef of the concept was from Indiana and grew up on farm. These are the recipes his mom cooked on the farm. He later attended culinary school in Boston and moved to California so that is how the farm food got twisted. Everything is twisted in this restaurant.”
When driving up to the restaurant, you are surprised to see a tractor. Inside the Hash House A Go Go there are farm implements, pictures on the walls, cattle hide booths and bar stools. The restaurant is interesting and different.
As Jim says, “We call our atmosphere farm industrial sheik. There is a lot of metal.
The restaurant’s bar and dining rooms were filled with guests as the waiters served large platters of food.
Their “Twisted” Apple Smoked Bacon, Mashed Potatoes and certified Angus Beef stuffed Burgers were gigantic. All this in one burger!
The Hash House Famous Flapjacks were filled with Snickers or Fruit and topped with Whipped Cream.
There was Sage fried chicken, jumbo shrimp cocktail (13-15 to a pound) and other tastings served from their menu. What a feast!
These are not the usual dishes you find in most restaurants.
The Farm Scrambles had a variety of fillings- salmon, chicken, corned beef, meat loaf and more.
Choose from salads, sandwiches, big o’ chicken pot pie, crispy hand hammered pork tenderloin and also a whole page of breakfast or brunch meals.
Open 7 am-10 pm every day. Happy Hour specials: $3 bar, wine, cocktails and $5 appetizers.
For information, call (702)-898-4646. This is the Hash House A Go Go Twisted Farm food’s fifth restaurant, at 555 North Stephanie, at Sunset, in Henderson.
