Unless you're a local, you probably haven't had much reason to venture out to Maryland - but here's a good one. The local tavern serves up an array of budget friendly meals, many on or under the $10 mark. Like a good pub should, they serve up a tasty schnitzel, as well as pastas, salads & more. Under fluorescent lighting, & often packed with families, this isn't somewhere you'd head for some peace & quiet, but it does the job!
On Monday nights, the newly refurbished Burwood Inn puts on its $10 pizza night for its members (just join, membership is free & then you can hit up Happy Hour). Just reading the menu is sure to make you salivate - chilli jam chicken, prawns, pork belly, pepperoni & chorizo and more. Through the week they also offer special meals under $20 on Spanish night (Tuesdays), Trivia night (& cheap schnitzels, Wednesdays) and Rib night (Thursdays) so its a pretty safe bet whenever you plan on heading out.
