Back-To-School Easy Takeout Dinner Options in Burlington 

September 6, 2023

The calendar has turned to September and parents across the region are preparing their little ones (and not-so-little ones) to head back to school. The start of the school year means back to the grind of homework and following a bedtime schedule. It also means juggling after-school sports/activities schedules that sometimes get in the way of the traditional family dinner. 

Fall tends to be a time when families rely on takeout to keep their family going as they attend back-to-school events, athletic games and activities, and the million and one things that come up at this time of year. 

Burlington restaurants thankfully have you covered with a wide variety of nutritious meals and dishes for your family. 

Nick’s Place 

Located at 114 Cambridge Street, Nick’s  Place isn’t just known for its handmade pizza, but also for its tantalizing menu including calzones, roast beef, cold and hot sandwiches, subs, pasta, seafood, wraps, and rice bowls! This doesn’t even get started on their dessert menu that showcases a Brownie Sundae for Two, Fried Dough, Apple Crisp, and so much more! 

This family-friendly restaurant is a great option for families on the go this fall as the food may be takeout but it is made with only the freshest ingredients and Italian herbs that will leave your family satisfied.
