Family cooks face a lot of pressure at Thanksgiving. One misstep and your 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 closed on Thanksgiving, chain restaurants are expecting a busy day, with many offering Thanksgiving specials. Do you prefer something non-traditional? You can always get a pizza, burger or pancakes.
Here’s a look at some of the places where you can grab a bite to eat on Thanksgiving. Please note that hours may vary and some franchisees may choose not to be open so be sure to call first
