Hash House A Go Go, an all-day dining spot, opened at 5350 International Drive; Orlando, FL – just a half mile North of Universal Boulevard, serving “twisted farm food” for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner at the restaurant group’s first Southeast location.

The restaurant seats 260 guests, including 60 seats at the bar.

Hash House A Go Go has received national recognition from the likes of The Steve Harvey Show, Martha Stewart, Al Roker, and Adam Richman of the Travel Channel’s “Man Vs. Food.”

I recently visited for a media dinner, and all I can say is that I wish them the best of luck.

The location has previously been a series of different restaurants without many lasting more than a few years.

As one of the few if only places for “breakfast” on International Drive, it is a unique restaurant with uniquely huge portions of food. I would imagine it would be a good place for groups to get together for something “fun” or different to try or maybe have a nice laugh about when the food arrives.

The decor is a bit dark inside when I would have imagined something brighter to signal the morning day or something.

The food…though admired by Adam Richman and Martha Stewart…was not particularly memorable besides the huge portions. It was gluttony defined…huge portions for a good price.

I suppose it is true what they say as quantities increase, quality often is compromised. The items I tasted were in need of some flavor and taste, and I hope the chef remedies this before it is too late.
