Jan 16, 2015

Dining out is fun. There is no fuss, no cleanup and no thinking. But, it can also mean a big check. There are, however, many delicious, creative options in Burlington for $10 or less.

Sally Pollak, food writer for the Burlington Free Press, sampled many affordable options around town, including 22 chicken wings, a foot-long Philly Cheese Steak and a spaghetti dish that's been famous since 1973. She shared her favorites with VPR.
