The staff are very nice, and the toppings bar helpful, but the meat and fries are too greasy for my taste. Patio dining is nice here, as you can get a good breeze going through the garage door when it is raised. Nice atmosphere, but...More

The grease monkey serves great and big burgers. Their menu is on hoods and the decor in the rest of the place continues this theme. The burger and the bun was very delicious.

This restaurant is unsanitary and the bathrooms are absolutely disgusting!! Sports bar style atmosphere with nothing appealing about this place. Management had a careless attitude when mentioning concerns and I believe they were drinking alcohol on the job!! We won’t be back!!

There is a small area outside on a deck with tables and seating that is roughly 20'x20' for which dogs are welcome. The owner (I think) even came out to welcome the dogs when we were there

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.
