More on Three Chefs.

By Michelle Gienow | Posted 4/23/2008

It was the grim middle of a very long weekend spent helping a relative move, and we were hungry. Dining prospects around the rental truck office were unpromising, so we wandered into the nearest eatery, Three Chefs, with low expectations and walked out 40 minutes later stuffed with a cheap and unexpectedly delicious dinner. Three Chefs' polyglot menu has everything from jerk chicken ($8.95) to pasta with shrimp in vodka cream sauce ($7.95) to pancakes all day long ($3.45). We tried the fried fish of the day dinner ($12.95). Easily enough to feed two people, the enormous battered fish fillets (we didn't realize "fish dinner" meant a whole fish) were deliciously light. The homemade sides were uneven--sweet potatoes were caramelized mounds of allspiced deliciousness, while the green beans seemed to come straight from a can. Burgers are hefty and hand-formed--no frozen food-service patties here--and range from $4.95 to $6.50 depending on topping. Do not miss the outstanding fresh hand-cut french fries ($1.99). Parents will appreciate the 99 cent children's menu and the Brio train table in the corner; those without kids will appreciate that Three Chefs serves until 3 a.m. on weekends.
