As of November 20, many Front Range counties have moved to Red Level restrictions. That means indoor dining is closed, though takeout, delivery and outdoor dining remain options. You should check first with your chosen restaurant for its Thanksgiving Day policies.
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 (and this year…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 $30 per person — sometimes way under $30.
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 this post.
