Some people prefer to serve Thanksgiving dinner at home, but don’t always want to prepare every single dish from scratch, while others like to go out or take out. Grocery stores and restaurants are happy to take care of most, if not all, the work. Whatever your style, here are some options for under $35 per person — sometimes way under $35.
Most outlets will take your orders or reservations online. And note, that typically when you pick up, taxes, tip and beverages are not included in the dinner price.
We’ll be adding more restaurant options as we hear about them, so keep checking here.
