    Been to GMBG twice while traveling to Dallas. Something everyone needs to see. Hope that the menu gets some changes. One thought is maybe a seasonal menu that has things that are seasonal in Texas or other southern areas. Just an idea.... GMBG is too good to just be a burger and fries kind of place.

    Had seen this on TV and always wanted to visit. Had to make reservations which was a good idea, it was pretty packed for a Thursday night. I always judge these type restaurants by their burgers, let me tell you this burger was on! My co-worker had the fish and chips, she loved it. Great atmosphere, not for little ones maybe 10 and up. A lot of the people that walked in were dressed like gear head, just like the Fast n Loud show, it was neat to see. Then Richard from Fast N Loud walks in, poor guy everybody wanted a picture with him or of him. He didn't stay that long he jetted outside and to a private party up on the deck. They also have a great venue for music. I will definitely return, bring my 11 yr old, were are Fast N Loud fans.

    Staff was very friendly and professional. Not your typical place to eat and definitely has the Gas Monkey flair to it. Prices were good. My pulled pork sandwich was delivered in a pan that looks like it had been in the garage (nice touch). Overall great experience and will visit again the next time I am in Dallas. Good move by putting the swag shop in the back as not to overwhelm guest that are there only for food.

    The CFS was impressive looking but didn't taste that good. Way over battered and the batter was not fully cooked. Had a flour taste. CFS is a staple of Texas restaurants and I really expected better of the Gas Monkey.

    With all the hype this place got from friends we decided to check it out. Even on a Tuesday night we were packed in like sardines into the restaurant part of the bar. It took a while for our server to get to our drinks started but we certainly didn't wait as long as some of the other larger tables around us. The food was okay. Typical bar fare with a twist. 3 out of 4 of us tried the brisket grilled cheese. The brisket was a bit on the dry side and a side of spicy BBQ sauce would have kicked it up a notch. Service was pretty good, our waiter was quite energetic making our wait for our order bearable.

    My 12 year old daughter has a 65 Mustang project car and she loves to watch car shows. We are huge fans of Fast N Loud so its no wonder I wanted to dine at GMBG while in Dallas for work. The atmosphere was exactly as I expected! The music was loud, but not too loud. The décor fit the name and fit Dallas. Burgers were huge and served in what I thought was an oil pan used on cars. LOL Our waitress was accommodating and attentive, but not intrusive. We made 11:30am reservations online and glad we did! By noon the place was packed with tourists and locals alike. The gift shop ladies were very sweet and helpful. Glad I could share in the experience that we see on the tube every week! Thanks Richard!

    -Loved Rachel and Brent our servers. They made our dinner. -Do not order the gigantor onion rings. Crispy and look delicious but have zero flavor! I'd rather eat my napkin! -Brisket was delicious although not worth the $16.99 charge. -Grilled cheese brisket was worth driving 200 miles for! Still drooling! -great gift shop -Great venue for a good band! Hopping bar scene, although not as busy as I had hoped for a Friday night.

    Was seated promptly at 6pm....The waitress was great...never an empty glass...on top of everything....had a small problem with the french fries being overcooked...an assistant manager making rounds and checking on our dining experience noticed the fries had not been eaten and asked if their was a problem... I just commented that they were way too done.... He asked if we would allow him to bring out a large new order cooked properly... I said that would be great..... He returned from the kitchen in less that 2 monutes with perfectly cooked and hot french fries...Made the whole dining experience great.... A little later Aaron .. I guess the main manager came over and checked on us and asked if we had been taken care of.... and was very nice..

    GMBG turned out to be more than a theme restaurant. I was pretty blown away at how great the food was. Whoever put the menu together really put some thought into it. We ordered their signature nachos which were made with brisket cubes and BBQ sauce. It looked odd but it was amazing! They do a lot of deliciously creative things with brisket--and I'm not a big brisket fan but this stuff was great. They serve other meats too. Food is served in rustic-looking metal pans (they're lined with parchment paper so no lock jaw) and it goes well with the whole garage theme décor. The gift shop is nice but the items there are a bit overpriced. The outdoor concert venue is also really nicely done. An overall great experience I would recommend.

    Pretty cool spot, but make sure you know what you're signing up for - which is a loud bar and bands doing sound checks outside that actually rattle the windows. Converstaion is challenging. Service is good. Food is about what you'd expect. Heavy on salt and grease.

    We had a party of 5 coming in with reservations and some more friends joined so they were last minute able to accomodate us with an amazing booth for 9. Friendly and helpful seating staff and wait staff. Food was good. Drinks were AMAZING - had a monkey martini and margarita. Loved that the food was served in oil pans and there are a lot of small touches like leopard print silverware and metal grey take home boxes.

    The experience I had at Gas Monkey was absolutely amazing. The room had a nice flow about it and the staff was wonderful. The food was simply amazing, some of the best damn ribs I have ever eaten anywhere. About the only thing that caught me off guard was the paying for the souvenir glasses without being asked if we wanted them.

    I took my son to the garage and then to the Bar n Grill for lunch as a end of summer treat. I expected the food to be mediocre because, after all, the BnG was built on the back of GMG and cable stardom. However, the Pulled Pork and Chicken sandwiches were far above average for a small concert venue/bar, the service was speedy, and the place clean. I was also inexpensive enough to return for more than a special treat with a car-obsessed teenager. High marks to the crew.

Had so much fun at the bar that we cancelled our reservation and ate at the bar. Food was amazing. The grilled cheese with brisket is my very favorite. This was my first concert at Gas Monkey and I can't wait to go back. REALLY GREAT venue. Dale put on a really great show and we had an awesome time at Gas Monkey. Can't wait to go back.

    We were in town on vacation and initially went as fans of Fast N Loud, but loved it so much that we went back for lunch on the way out of town a few days later. Already planning return trip and will definitely recommend to friends visiting the area. Awesome food, fantastic service, would love to go back during a concert.
