Best Corned Beef Hash in Dallas - Ft. Worth?

I love the idea of corned beef with a soft fried, runny yolk egg setting on top. So many hashes though, are suspiciously from the can, salty with way too much tang.

I've discovered the Original Pancake House has exceptional hash. It has lots of flavor without being overly corned.

  1. Although I'm quite fond of the OPH, I doubt their hash is made from scratch onsite. I've seen too many Sysco trucks unloading in the back parking lot.
    However, I'd love to know WHO in Dallas does make hash from scratch on site.

      Doesn't surprise me that Sysco is a supplier.

      Any other good CB hashes in the metro?

      1. re: twinwillow

        After thinking about cb hash for an hour or so, I went to OPH for early lunch and found that they do indeed grind/prepare their own hash, onsite, about twice a week. That didn't come as a great surprise as it states so on the menu. Also not surprising, since they're in the breakfast b'ness, not the deli b'ness - they do not corn the beef brisket, but purchase it whole, from....... your favorite supplier!

      2. Not exactly what you were asking, but the brisket cornbread hash at Smoke is something I crave weekly.

        1. Thanks for the detective work, CocoaNut. I'll feel better about eating my CBH at OPH.

          1. Deli News has some really good hash.

              And knowing Deli-News, I'll bet their CBH didn't drop off a Sysco truck.

            2. The only two I can think of off hand that even serve corned beef hash are Barbec's and Capitol Pub.

                But do they taste good?

                Good texture, good corned flavor, not overly salty or tangy?

              2. Crossroads Diner on Walnut Hill east of 75 by chef Tom Fleming has both corned beef hash and pork hash. did not try the corned beef but there's a photo of the pork hash here:

                i just recently ate at Original Pancake House for the first time and really like their Dutch baby pancake. the texture was really good - kindof spongy in a good way

                  Well crap. I have an appt on Greenville Mon and planned to stop in here for b'fast. I anticipated trying the beef hash. Pulled up their website to see exactly where they're located and they.are.closed.on.Monday. If I have follow-ups, will make a note to schedule on days other than Monday.

                  Based on the pictures, I like that they fry their eggs to have a little lacey browness around the edges.

                  1. re: teegee

                    I had the pork hash the other day for breakfast. it was OK but doesn't compare to their corned beef hash.

                  2. We had a most delicious brunch at Crossroads Diner today.
                    I had their incredible home made, corned beef hash. IMHO, I personally pronounce it, the BEST CBH in Dallas! Especially with a couple of perfectly poached eggs on top.

                      I have not had that, twin, but the perfectly poached egg sold me.

                      1. re: DallasDude

                        Only OPH has poached eggs the equal of Crossroads. But, The corned beef hash at OPH, as good as it is, tastes like it came out of a can instead of totally home made on site as it is at Crossroads. You can really taste the difference.

                    2. I finally made my way to Crossroads yesterday and look forward to future visits. I really liked the open airy dining room. However, while they did have hash and it was beef.... it ended there. By definition, "corned" beef should be salt cured, often in a piquantly pickled brine. What was served here was simply shredded beef hash.

                      1. I know this is an old thread, but it always pops up on google searches for best corned beef hash in Dallas.

                        I grew up thinking I didn't like corned beef hash because I tried it at a Lyon's (coffee shop) in CA as a kid, and I realize now that must have been canned.

                        I have now tried it at Cyndi's NY Deli, OPH, Crossroads, Mecca & (this morning) The Egg & I, in that order. I would rank them Crossroads, The Egg & I, OPH, Cyndi's and a distant last Mecca.

                        At Mecca the CBH tasted canned to me, and my egg yolk on one egg was fully hard. And I've found that the appeal to me is to have the egg get all mixed in with the hash.

                        The Egg & I did something different, they served a side of Hollandaise with it. I have not really been a hollandaise fan but I tried it with the CBH and liked it, once I had hash left with no more egg. It comes with english muffin but I substituted sourdough toast.
