We became regulars at Three House thanks to their delicious smashburger topped with the perfect amount of cheddar and garlic aioli on a fluffy sesame bun. But this casual counter-service restaurant in West Town has utility beyond being just a burger joint. They also have a selection of tasty empanadas (our favorite is the curried chicken) and serve brunch every day, with dishes like french toast topped with coffee, anglaise, and jam, a fried chicken biscuit with chorizo gravy, and a great BEC. Basically everything here is exactly the kind of food you want to eat when you’re hungover, drunk, or about to get drunk.
