“one of Evansville’s best kept culinary secrets”
House of Como is truly one of Evansville’s best kept culinary secrets. It is a restaurant that garners little attention but remains a cornerstone in the Evansville dining scene. For the folks who are unaware of this Evansville staple, they are missing out on some of the most unique, tasty food this city has to offer. House of Como was started in 1969 by Martha Hage’s late husband George. He implemented Lebanese family recipes as the restaurant’s flagship dishes and surrounded those dishes with other more familiar fare such as massive, juicy steaks, hearty lasagna and butter chicken. As eclectic as the restaurant may appear from the outside, nestled alone against I-164 with its ever present Christmas decorations adorning its grey, nondescript square structure, tradition is the name of the game in this house. That tradition is definitely felt stepping inside the House of Como as well. I noticed the age of the interior but I could literally feel the memories and history seeping out of the walls of the restaurant. To me, it seemed like I was in the cozy, finished basement of a beloved relative’s house, prepared with the utmost love and care for a holiday gathering. If those walls could talk, the stories would entertain to no end.
