Welcome to the first installment of Deals and Steals! I'm the editor of Woodbridge Patch, Lauren Jost. As a lifelong Woodbridge resident, I have been searching for the newest and best places to eat. In this weekly column, I'll chronicle things to do, places to eat and maybe a few recipes with bang for your buck. This week: places to eat and things to do.
Places to eat:
A favorite fare of many a Woodbridge resident is Moe's Mondays. Moe's Southwestern Grill, located just off of Hoadly Road, is a national chain with delectable queso. If you're a fan of the deal run by the restaurant on Mondays for a burrito, chips and drink for just $5.99. We're talking, loaded burritos. A friend of mine got the works: steak, onions, green peppers, beans and rice for the special Moe's Monday price. [Note: steak and pork are an additional 40 cents].
Al-Zaytoun Kabob, located just off of Smoketown Road., was established in 2007 and has become a favorite of mine. Everyday and weekend specials are available and are a great price, but the entrees are savings-friendly as well. Boneless Chicken Breast Kabob for just $9.95 packs a flavor punch like no other. The spices and herbs used in the marinate make these kabobs to die for.
Our very own Potomac Nationals team has got you covered when it comes to saving money at Pfitzner Stadium. Two events that the stadium hosts helps you eat, drink and have fun at the ballpark on a budget.
Dollar Mondays: tickets to the game and hot dogs are only $1.00 each. The catch? Tickets are first-come, first-serve so get there early to join in the festivities.
Belly Buster Nights: these nights pop up intermittently throughout the season, but they are well worth the $15.00 per person. All-you-can eat food is catered at the picnic section of the ballpark, and local favorites such as Hard Times Cafe, Moe's Southwestern Grill and UNO'S Pizzeria have all been known to cater this event.
