A couple of weeks ago, Frisco hosted Off the Rails, a two day country music concert.  So brunch just made sense.  Especially when a place like Mash'd is nearby.

Chicken and biscuits is the perfect meal when you're going to be listening to the Charlie Daniels Band, Dierks Bently, and Jason Aldean in just a few short hours.  The chicken tenders were just that - super tender and twice battered.  The chicken sat atop a chorizo cheddar biscuit and was covered in "chuck norris"  gravy.  I'm not sure what chick norris gravy is other than delicious.  I also don't know why it's not capitalized on the menu, but I'm going with it.  I'm not a really big fan of chorizo, so I could have done without that as a part of my biscuit.  We also opted to get a fried egg on top.  I mean, why not?  Mitzi's was a bit overcooked, but mine was perfectly runny.  It doesn't come with the egg, but you can order it at no extra charge. I like that; refreshing considering I was recently charged extra to put cheese on my breakfast taco.  You can order a half serving if you think two biscuits and all that chicken is just too much.  And a half order is plenty, especially if you order queso as an appetizer. 

And who isn't going to order queso?  They call it serious queso, and yes, it is! Here's the menu description - house prepared w/ roasted garlic, abita beer, chorizo & pickled pepper relish, served with seasoned tortilla chips.  If you're feeling adventurous, add fried chicken to you queso.  You read that correctly.  Fried chicken in your queso!  That is happening next time.

Did I mention the mimosas?  Four options for you to try: traditional orange, blood orange, peach, and blackberry.  Served in a mason jar, the blackberry mimosas were a perfect addition to our brunch.

The Southern Egg Fries got a rave review.  Imagine a cast iron skillet filled with crispy fries. Now imagine the fries topped with some chorizo and melted cheddar cheese.  But wait! There's more!  A couple of over-medium eggs, and of course, that "chuck norris" gravy.  As Trey said, "Eggs and fries will happen again."

Amber ordered Benny's Skillet.  Overall she loved it.  But she's like me - we would rather have bacon in our biscuits instead of chorizo.  Benny's Skillet is their version of eggs benedict.  Also served in a cast iron skillet, we're talking creamed spinach, chorizo biscuits, moonshine stock poached egg, layered together and covered in hollandaise sauce.

I didn't get the reviews from Marlon and Stacy as they left early to get to the airport.  But here's a picture of what they ate.  Looks good, right?

This sign was hanging by our table.  Love it!  

If you're in Frisco, Ft. Worth, or San Antonio, be sure to check out Mash'd, you won't regret it.
