Family cooks face a lot of pressure on Thanksgiving. One wrong step and the whole day could be 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.
While a growing number of retailers are keeping their doors shut on Thanksgiving, restaurant chains are expecting a busy day, with many offering Thanksgiving specials. Prefer something non-traditional? You can always get a pizza, burger or pancakes.
Here’s a look at some of the places you can grab a bite on Thanksgiving. Note that hours may vary and some franchisees may opt not to be open, so be sure to call first
