For those of us without a washer and dryer in their home, the laundromat is a must. But honestly, who likes going to the laundromat? There's always a few questionable characters, screaming children running amuck, a severe lack of open dryers, and the real possibility that one of your favorite T-shirts will be ruined or stolen. But what if the laundromat could be an enjoyable experience? What if you could find sweet release from the monotony and annoyance of the laundromat through the world's oldest and favorite vice? No, we're not talking about sex here. Ladies and gentleman, we present you: Texas' Harvey Washbangers --- the only laundromat where you can enjoy a savory burger with a refreshing beer all while you wait for your laundry. Simply put, it's a match made in heaven.
So, where did this ingenious idea come from? None other than Michael Lair, the general manager of the Texas-based company. He set up 80 high-efficiency washers and dryers that take credit or debit cards, so no need to worry about grabbing a roll of quarters from the bank beforehand. Once your laundry is suddsing up, it's time to find a seat and relax in their full-service restaurant. And don't worry about having to set a timer either. A lightboard easily tells you when it's time to move things over to the dryer. Or, if you really want to pamper yourself, the wash-and-eat joint also offers a drop-off "wash and fold" service" as well.
Now to the real question...what is the food like? Well, considering Lair trained at the Culinary Institute of America, you can bet that it's delicious! The menu begins with simple yet indulgent fried apps, like the classic Southern Fried Green Tomatoes, drizzled with a balsamic reduction and housemade buttermilk dressing. On the meatier end, there's the Porkaholic Cheese Fries, smothered in root beer braised pulled pork, bacon, cheese, jalapenos and BBQ sauce.
