Richard Rawlings in my kind of manly man. The kind of bad boy who looks like he could fix anything that was broken with a wrench, a roll of duct tape and a smile.
You probably know of him from his hit show on Discovery called Fast ‘n Loud. The show revolves around the Gas Monkey Garage, where Rawlings and his partner, Aaron Kaufman, are always on the hunt for an old car they can remodel to hot-rod perfection.
I was invited to a media lunch at Rawlings newest venture Gas Monkey Bar & Grill – a 10,000 sq. foot behemoth of a place located off of I-35 and NW Hwy. Why a restaurant? Rawlings told me, “What does a guy who likes to work on cars like to do when he’s off duty? Watch sports on TV, drink beer and chase girls. What better place to do that than in your own restaurant!”
They have taken over the old FireWater space and added on some outdoor seating and staging. Chef David Hollister has given the menu a Southern comfort food feel to it with things like Smoked Brisket, 3-Cheese Truffled Mac, Fried Green Beans (not batter fried but stir fried) and kids will go crazy over the Grilled Banana Split. Everything I sampled was phenomenal and I am looking forward to bringing my boys back.
General Manager Alex Mendonsa says that eventually, they plan to have live music 7 nights a week. For now, you’ll catch great local bands on the weekends. They also plan on showcasing national and regional acts from time to time. The Old 97’s will perform this Saturday, September 21 (9pm) and Hank III will take the stage on October 3.
The interior is made up of reclaimed wood and metal features giving it a cool, modern industrial vibe. Men, you be thrilled to read that there are like a hundred TVs and all of the games can be viewed from pretty much any seat in the house.
Gas Monkey Bar & Grill is located at 10261 Technology Dr., Dallas, TX 75220.
Fast N’ Loud is a TV show on the Discovery Channel (Mondays at 8) in which hosts Richard Rawlings and Aaron Kaufmann of Dallas-based Gas Monkey Garage find forgotten classic cars and give them new life and then some. Being acute businessmen, they’ve expanded their brand to a full-service restaurant, bar and music venue at 10261 Technology Blvd, between Stemmons Frwy and Loop 12.
The large venue has two split-level outdoor decks, a large indoor dining space, and indoor and outdoor bars. Everything here, like their cars, is fast and loud. The El Jefe burger is made with an onion jam, pork rind fried jalapeños, cheddar, “house” bacon and a fried quail egg. A side of collard greens is cooked in a Texas Pale Ale; there are red chile grits and bacon battered chicken fried steaks (with bacon cream gravy).
Texas Post Oak smoked meats sold by the pound are served with “monkey sauce” or (512) Pecan Porter barbecue sauce. The proteins include a sea salt and black pepper-rubbed black angus brisket and coffee ancho black angus short ribs.
There’s lighter fare, but that seems really pansy at this point. Salads and sandwiches (pork, chicken and brisket) and some appetizers. Sprinkled throughout the menu are some interesting plates, perhaps upscale bar food, like the Pan de Campo that comes red chili cilantro pesto, red onion, beefsteak tomato, house made bacon and goat cheese.
Gas Monkey has been working out all the kinks with slow openings the past two weeks. Hopefully, they’re already at full-throttle mode. On September 21, the Old 97’s will play at Gas Monkey, followed by Hank III on October 3 and the Misfits on November 6.
So, if Gas Monkey gets a show, when can we book a table at Duck Dynasty Diner? Or Honey Boo-Boo’s Hot Mess? Mark Cuban’s Shark Tank, anyone?
