These restaurant chains will be open for families to eat at on Thanksgiving Day

Don’t want to cook on Thanksgiving? There are a few restaurants remaining open to serve the public.

With the major inflation that’s happened this year, some families don’t even want to purchase Thanksgiving dinner, so there are some options available for eating out.

In 2020 the average price for a Thanksgiving dinner that fed ten people was $46.90, even less than in 2019. That cost has since gone up.


Where can families go out to eat dinner on Thanksgiving?

Cracker Barrel will be open, and they normally serve Thanksgiving meals every year.

Other places that will be open include Bob Evans, Boston Market, Golden Corral, Marie Callender’s, and Tony Roma’s.

Many fast food places will be open as well.


Starbucks, Sonic, Popeyes, McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Dunkin Donuts, Denny’s, IHOP, Waffle House, Applebee’s, Buffalo Wild Wings, T.G.I. Friday’s, and Subway will all be open as well.

It’s important to call ahead and be sure your local restaurant is open on Thanksgiving, because some owners may choose to close.
