3 Bar and Grill, Clarendon, VA

I’ve had dinner at 3 Bar and Grill (formerly known as Restaurant 3) many times, but had my first lunch here on Thursday. I was famished (I walked many miles to arrive here), and I’m glad I was.

It is exceedingly rare when I drink anything during the day, but I earned a beer, so went with a draft of Bell’s Best Brown Ale ($6). For those unfamiliar with 3 Bar and Grill, they have an outstanding beer selection (over 80) and a terrific happy hour at the bar that runs from 4 PM all the way until 8 PM (although I’d check their website to be sure about the times).

Lunch “entrees” (mainly sandwiches) range from $8 up to $15. I ordered the least expensive item and cannot imagine anything being better than this: 3’s BLT ($8) is made with … drum roll, please … house-cured bacon! It also comes topped with fried green tomatoes (!) and is served on grilled flat bread – it’s great because the bread component isn’t too thick; nevertheless, this is a big sandwich, and comes with a pile of well-seasoned (probably frozen) steak-cut fries. This is the best BLT I’ve had in recent memory, and you’ll thank me if you order it, too.

3 Bar and Grill also features a revolving daily lunch special called “Workers’ Chomp.”
