You're darn Skippy! Black-Eyed-Pea really saved the day for me a few years back when I ended up with the flu the night before Thanksgiving. My family didn't feel right leaving me home to keep their fancy dinner reservation, so B-E-P to the rescue. We just ate straight from the Styrofoam, plastic utensils and all. Delish! It turned into one of our most memorable, on-the-fly gatherings and I'm grateful the option is still around for others who might need an affordable, last minute Turkey Day meal. Plus, no kitchen clean up is always a plus.

Also, anyone who is feeling fish-y instead of gobbly, McCormick and Schmicks and Trulucks are open on Thanksgiving too.

LOL!!! I came home from the hospital on Thanksgiving Day w/ baby #2. No family to entertain or go to that day. IT WAS AWESOME! Just the 4 of us. A friend ordered one of those meals and had it waiting at the house for us.

Okay............... McCormick & Schmick. We are going to be in Orlando for Thanksgiving . Again, NO FAMILY but the 4 of us. We have dinner reservations for every night BUT Thanksgiving Day. There is a McCormick & Schmick there but the blirb in the paper says they are having a "traditional Thanksgiving Meal". The price is GREAT (less than most and actually pretty darn cheap). I'm debating between them or another place. Anyone had their Holiday Meals before????? I'm desperate. It is either find a good "normal" Thankgsiving meal (some are WAY over the top and we don't want turkey prepared 30 different ways all rolled into 1) OR fix it myself in a condo OR fix it when we get back home that weekend. I'd MUCH rather let someone else do the cooking

Another restaurant I just discovered that is open for Thankgiving is the Cracker Barrel Restaurant. It also offers easy-on-the-budget family casual dining, with a great homestyle Thanksgiving menu (eat-in or to-go), along w/their regular menu, and are located all over the metroplex as well, i.e., Arlington (2), Denton, DeSoto, Ft. Worth, Grapevine, Lewisville and Mesquite.

See details at: Cracker Barrel Restaurant

For a little more upscale dinner, Chamberlain's in Addison is very good and they are serving a special Thanksgiving dinner (Chamberlain's Steak and Chop House). They don't list the price on that link, but the email they sent me lists the price as $40 per person, $15 for children under 12 (with a regular children's menu available).

We went to Tanglewood Resort up in Lake Texoma last year. We'll be going there again this year
It was awesome and reasonably priced. You do need reservations.

Another happy UnAmerican then. I don't like turkey any other day of the year, why should I gorge on it on Thanksgiving?

I can have steak any old day.

A traditional Thanksgiving meal is what it's all about.
That's what cracks me up. Everyone makes a big to-do about the traditional turkey dinner. But you can get those puppies (cheaper) year round. Along with all of the other dishes.

I'm thinking of going off-tradition and making Wyatt's Baked Eggplant - Ashbury's Aubergines Eggplant Recipes instead of dressing as the friend who is hosting us always has an aunt who brings lousy dressing (wet and gooey). OK is that sort of restaurant-related?
