Mary's Is Bringing Its Burgers and Fried Chicken West with a Newly Opened Castle Hill Outpost

Over the years, the Mary's empire has expanded from the original dimly lit Newtown establishment to a hospitality group spanning a variety of locations. Alongside a longstanding residency in The Lansdowne that's set to come to an end soon and a short stint in Melbourne, the burger-slinging crew now operates out of Castlereigh Street in the CBD and Circular Quay, where you'll find the restaurant above concert venue Mary's Underground.

The latest addition to the Mary's family is a new outpost further west — northwest to be exact — in the Hills District's leafy Castle Hill. The latest Mary's is located in the old residence of another burger loving-restaurant, Plan B, which closed earlier this year. In fact, 250 Old Northern Road has a storied burger-based history, with In-N-Out-inspired chain Down N' Out calling the Hills shopfront home before closing after a long legal battle with the US burger chain.

Head south down Old Northern Road past Castle Hill mainstays and local meeting points Castle Towers and Hillside Hotel and you'll find the restaurant, equipped with all of the fan-favourite menu items from the inner-city locations. The Mary's burger is here of course, alongside the crunchy golden fried chicken, spicy chicken burger, whole cauliflower, mash with gravy and a heap of vegan options.

The Mary's team is still ramping things up at the new location, so you can expect more details in the future, but for now, any northwest Sydneysiders can head down and try the renowned burgers for themselves (make sure to get a side of Mary's sauce to dip your chips into).
