    My fiancée and I made a plan to eat at Gas Monkey while in Dallas for the annual Red River Rivalry. I LOVED the fish tacos- the salsa's were so good. Service was great and the atmosphere was fun. Had a great time and the food was terrific! Would definitely go back!!

    Dined on 10/3/2014
    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.

    Met expectations. Meal sizes were huge! Well they are for us anyway...coming from Sydney Australia we probably could've shared a meal! Prices very reasonable. Service was good...our friendly waitress, Suzie, filled us in on some things we should see and do in Dallas too. All-in-all a good experience.

    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.

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.

    I took my husband for his birthday and we both had a great time! Would definitely come back. Both had brisket plates...the brisket was awesome but the side dishes are a little different for me. Great for people that like to experiment though. We felt like the food prices were really reasonable bug souvenir prices were pretty high ($30 for a tshirt!!). Still, it was overall a great experience and we would definitely dine here again.

    Service from waitress was excellent. We waited longer than usual for our drink order to be taken. Not a good selection of food from menu. Several people in our party wanted the chicken fried steak but waitress did not recommend it due to "still trying to perfect it" . Took a long time for our food order to come out. U personally wouldn't go back but would only recommend it for the experience. It is a typical bar and grill would have expected more from it being gas monkey. ..

    drove in from Fort Worth made reservations via Open Table. The wait staff was nice and friendly, checkin on us (thanks Andrew!), our food was the main disappointment, it was between cold and almost lukewarm. The smoked queso was cold enough to have a film on top when served, the chips were super greasy and cold. The brisket tasted like it would have been awesome if it was served at correct temp. The sides were so cold it made me gag. The burgers were cooked to correct doneness, but they were barely warm. The strawberry margarita was awesome. They seemed to have enough staff etc and the place wasn't packed but was decently fulled with tables,so I'm not sure what the problem was. Would love to come back, but I am not sure I will.

    You do NOT have to be a fan of the show or even hot rods to enjoy this place. The service was really outstanding, friendly and attentive without being pushy. Danny was our bartender and was so likeable we canceled our reservation ( the hostesses were great too) and ate at the bar. Food was good, but came out warm not hot. That's my only complaint. The flavors were great.
