Description: The Grease Monkey Burger Shop and Social Club team has a goal to change the Arlington Restaurant / Bar experience. “The Monkey” combines hearty burgers, wicked libations, serious music and a party deck destined to be the place to be seen on a beautiful Texas day. We are excited to be part of a new Downtown Arlington REVIVAL focused on bringing the people back to where Arlington Business and Arlington Cool were born.

Dropped by based on TA reviews looking pretty good when I was stuck downtown Arlington by a passing train. This is an order at the counter place, then sit down and they buzz you when burgers ready. I agree with prior reviewer, probably not that many great alternatives if you are not a meat lover. Burger buns excellent. Meat thick and generous, very tasty. Nothing too salty. Great condiments, add from condiment bar so you get exactly what you want. They have a spicy "Ghost Ketchup" I tried a nip of, but stayed with the regular. Onion rings and tots fantastico. Only problem was my bacon was fatty and a little undercooked. They were cordial and apologetic. Everyone makes mistakes, it is how you handle them that determines level of quality. They handled well. Offered a new burger, new buns, whatever I wanted. Settled on some free onion strings, I was pretty full. My associate had The Angry Burger. It was good, spicyness came from the sauce he said. Ambiance is okay for a college/sports bar. We will go again.

What kind of burger joint doesn't serve food at 10:30 on a Saturday? The Grease Monkey is the one. At the door were 2 young guys that didn't even know if the kitchen was open. All they cared about was the 5 dollar cover. Between the terrible location, personnel and no food on a Saturday night, they won't be in business this time next year. Run the place like a real burger joint and they will come!!!!

We went to grab a beer & burger and watch the game. I love that you can sit on the outside bar, but its not a patio. Service is (normally) friendly and fun. The burgers are good, but the rest of the menu is mediocre. So if you dont eat beef, I wouldnt order any food.

Very casual place. I ordered nachos - it was pretty good but nothing to rave about. Wouldn't be missing anything if I never go here again.
