What does your venue specialize in? 

Start your day in AC with a bang! Hash House A Go Go brings its "twisted farm food" concept from Indiana to the famous Atlantic City Boardwalk with huge portions of breakfast food favorites as well as burgers, sandwiches and more!

 


What is the current reason one MUST come to your venue? 

Hash House serves twisted farm food and crafted cocktails, a full Hash House experience! It's a Midwest thing. And there's nothing else like it. Hash House A Go Go is where old school meets new and gets twisted. We bring people together over good food and good fun. Our goal is to provide great service, great food, and great value – with portions just like your mama would serve you. We take pride in our collaborations with our guests, our team, and our communities. We strive to create unforgettable dining experiences while staying “twisted”!

 

Do you have a signature product, service, dish, or drink (if so, please include a picture and description)?

Our crowd pleaser is Andy’s Sage Fried Chicken. This chicken is rolled in flour, fresh sage, and spices, then fried to a glorious crisp. From the words of Andy himself, “Before we opened the Original Hash House a Go Go, I used to cook bacon sage pancakes and pair them with hand tossed fried chicken. When writing the first HH menu, I wanted to mix it up a bit and that’s where it became sage fried chicken w/ bacon waffles. Guests loved the sage fried chicken so much we decided to use it in many of our menu items – from salads, to Benedicts, pastas, skewers, and more!”


Why is your venue a necessary part of Atlantic City or County? 

As we have learned Atlantic City is far more than a casino town. The city is a mixing bowl of culture, collectively through art, food, activities, and entertainment. Hash House, like many unique eateries in Atlantic City, offers crafted dishes straight from the Midwest, with fresh, farm to table, home cooking.

 

What can you tell us about Cofounders Andy Beardslee and Johnny Riviera?

Executive Chef and Cofounder, Andy Beardslee, was born in Michigan and raised in Milford, Indiana less than a mile from Maple Leaf Farms. Growing up in the agricultural Midwest, Andy learned to cook from his mom and grandma and perfected his skills at the Cambridge Culinary School in Boston. His family's recipes and midwestern roots continue to inspire his Hash House creations.  Johnny Riviera was born and raised in San Diego, California, Johnny has a lifetime of restaurant experience and is influenced by everything from American classics to European cuisine. He believes in creating honest, visceral dining experiences that bring fun and entertainment without pretense.

 


What are the Founders’ Favorite HH Combos?

Andy’s Go To Combo: Smoked Chicken Chowder & Cornbread with Crispy Pork Tenderloin and Bud in a Bag

 

Is there anything else you wish to share that sets you apart from other breakfast eateries?

Food is the very heart of Hash House. It’s our love language. And we love putting our spin on Midwest comfort meals.
