Thanksgiving can be stressful for family cooks. One mistake could mean that the entire day is ruined. Fortunately, if that happens (or if you just don’t feel like making an extravagant meal this year), there are plenty of restaurants open today.
Although a growing number stores will be closing their doors on Thanksgiving, restaurants are anticipating a busy day and many will offer Thanksgiving specials. Do you prefer something non-traditional? You can always get a burger, pizza, or pancakes.
Here’s a look at some of the places you can grab a bite on Thanksgiving. Hours may vary and some franchisees may not be open. Please call first.
