Hash House Diner (Pompano Beach)
***** Hash House Diner, 1602 South Cypress Creek Road, Pompano Beach, Florida 33060 (954) 788-6388.
Got a really good “mom & pop” diner for you…Hash House Diner in Pompano Beach.
From what I understand, this 45 red/white checkerboard table-cloth seater started out 2-years ago as a Hungarian restaurant…then, in April, 2009 a fellow who goes by the name “Chef Quinn” bought it and converted it into a DINER.
Anyway…this fellow Chef Quinn sure knows what he is doing. I did both a breakfast and lunch “outing”…and I got to tell you, the food was really-good.
On the breakfast visit…I sampled a western omelete ($6.49), 2 scrambled eggs-2 pancakes-2 strips of bacon-hash browns ($5.99)…For lunch I “did” 1/4 lb hamburger ($5.99), caesar salad (7.99), chicken parm sub ($6.99). Like I said before, really-good.
I don’t know about you, but I love finding these “strip-center” hole in the walls…the help is great, the prices just right…I think that the most expensive thing on the menu is 11 bucks…and the food “takes me back” to Brooklyn circa 1960.
I definitely want you to try the burgers…The joint does 1/4-1/2-1lb burgers… and I am telling you — the 1/4 pounder I had was diner-perfect. You diner-fans out there, know what “diner-perfect” means.
Hash House has a real nice menu…it isn’t huge, but it has enough breakfast stuff, soups, salads, sandwiches burgers, wings, and dinners…so nobody’s gonna starve.
One thing that needs “correcting”…no way, no how do you serve Hunt’s Catsup…it’s Heinz allll the waaay!
Hash House Diner is open Monday-Saturday 7am-8pm and Sunday 8am-3pm.
If neighborhood diners are your game, this joint will be right up you alley.
Breakfast this a.m.
Had scrambled eggs, sausage patties and pancakes. Pretty decent food.
I went to thier All U Can Eat pasta nite and fish nite. The pasta was GREAT! The sauce was as good as being in Italy. That was Wed nite. I ventured back on Friday nite and had all you can eat Pacific Cod in Beer Batter with hushpuppies, corn and slaw. The fish was as fesh as I have ever had, the waitress told me that Chef Quinn hand selects it on Friday mornings piece by piece. I am going to report back when I have breakfast as they offer country fried steak and eggs a real favorite of mine.
The country fried steak was FANTASTIC! The gravy had real sausage the biscuits were flakey like a bakery. My dining partner had the blueberry pancakes they had Real blueberries not some fake mix. They have expanded thier menu and it has become a favorite spot for me.
Chef Quinn sold the place and the new owners destroyed the food, raised the prices and was rude! they shut down in les than 90 days. What a shame such a great place has been closed.
