Yesterday Hash House A Go Go, an brand new all-day dining spot, opened at 5350 International Drive – just a half mile North of Universal Boulevard. The award-winning dining spot serves “twisted farm food” for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner at the restaurant group’s first Southeast location. Conceived of Midwestern roots, the concept launched in San Diego in 2000 and now boasts seven additional outposts in Las Vegas, Reno, Chicago, and at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut.
Hash House A Go Go, a name fusing the ideas of “old-style food” and “something new,” creates a fun, lighthearted dining experience offering traditional diner fare, spiced up with bold flavors and offbeat, over-the-top presentations.

On the non-alcoholic side, the drink list showcases an assortment of freshly squeezed juices and lemonades like the Hash House favorite, Kiwi Watermelon Lemonade. For the caffeine addicts, the restaurant offers a variety of specialties, including flavors like ‘smores mocha, caramel all over, and banana latte.
The restaurant’s décor, like the food, is country-style with an urban flair. From the barn-inspired exterior complete with a silver silo, to the welcoming interior with old-school black-and-white farm photos and relaxed booths, Hash House A Go Go is about having a good time—sophistication without pretention. The restaurant seats 260 guests, including 60 seats at the bar.

“We couldn’t be more excited to bring our twisted Midwestern fare to this region of the country,” said Jim Rees, Chief Operating Officer. “Hash House A Go Go will be a lively gathering place playing on the high energy and fun-loving style of Central Florida, while treating locals and visitors alike to inventive, farm-fresh food, presented in a style that’s all our own.”
