Default Thanksgiving in Linden/Rahway

Going to be working in the area over the holiday, any suggestions where I can get a decent turkey dinner? I don't want to spend 40-50$ at a fancy hotel.

Well Downtown Rahway has some nice places to eat i'm sure theres something down there. If not you can take the Train to Newark and eat somewhere in the Ironbound.(East of the station) Linden might also something in there downtown , all the stuff along the highway is crap.

Rahway and Linden are kind of depressing towns, if you ask me. You can surely find turkey dinner at a diner somewhere. But I recommend driving 15 minutes or so to downtown Cranford, and eating at the Cranford Hotel (not a real hotel, but used to be...now just a bar/restaurant). They are open 365 days a year, and have pretty good food and a cozy atmosphere (unlike most diners).

I grew up nearby, and pass through there very regularly, and comparing either Linden or Rahway to Hoboken doesn't make sense to me in terms of look and feel, OR demographics.
