A line of 50 to 75 people formed outside Hash House A Go Go by 10 a.m. on Wednesday waiting to get inside for the twisted farm foods within. Usually the doors open at 7:30 a.m. for the mammoth portions of breakfast foods, but on Wednesday, the Cooking Channel’s Unique Eats was in the house to film for an upcoming episode.

Owner Jim Rees says the film crew showed up at 4 a.m. with a list of dishes they wanted to cover, shooting everything in detail from prep to final presentation. “We’ve done an awful lot of these shows,” Rees said. “This by far from what I can tell is the most professional from what I can see in what they are shooting.”

Rees wouldn't dish on specifics, but the list was whittled down to half a dozen specialties with two shot from start to finish.

Once the doors opened and the seats filled, the film crew stopped by tables to talk to guests about their favorite dishes.

Hash House’s dishes got their twisted farm name from the first chef Rees hired at the San Diego outpost. “Our founding chef in San Diego grew up on a farm in Indiana. That’s where a lot of the recipes came from and references.”

The episode of Unique Eats is tentatively scheduled to air July 15. So far, the film crew has visited Holstein’s Shakes and Buns at Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and First Food and Bar at the Palazzo, with another five stops slated.
