Default Thanksgiving Dinner Out or Take Out

Just moved to the Chapel Hill area from NY. My husband is working T'giving day until 5pm. We are living in our motor home temporarily so cooking room is limited.

I'm looking for suggestions on restaurants to go to on T'giving Day evening.

Take out from a grocery could be an option but because we are so limited on refrigerator space I'm not sure that would work.

I'm looking for the traditional dinner- turkey, etc. No special dietary requirements

Thanks in advance!

I've heard the turkey dinner offered by Bojangles is very good. You need to order in advance though. Haven't seen them throw up the signs yet this year for pre-orders.

Try Acme in Carrboro. Not sure if they're open for Thanksgiving this year, but they have been in the past.

Also, the restaurant at the Carolina Inn, Carolina Crossroads, does a Thanksgiving Brunch — very nice. I'm not sure about supper, but imagine they would have something then also. It's quite a nice restaurant—definitely a step up from Bojangles.

You could also try some of the other nicer hotels like The Siena and their restaurant, Il Palio, and The Franklin.

I believe Elaine's on West Franklin has done Thanksgiving before, too.

Angus Barn has a great buffet - but it's pricey. I believe Cracker Barrel and Boston Market also serve traditional turkey dinners on Thanksgiving Day. Cracker Barrel also has the pre-cooked meal option that you can bring home.

We went to Mimi's Cafe last year. They have a turkey dinner package that you can get to go (but you would need to heat up yourself). Includes sides. Pretty good. They are also open for dining in on Thanksgiving day. Turkey was pretty good. Might do it again this year.

Foster's Market in Durham and Chapel Hill always have holiday meals. You can order a multi-course dinner for 4 to reheat at home or order separate items to create your own dinner. Have done it several times over Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's (all different menus) and it's always yummy!

Welcome to the Triangle! It might be a little bit of a hike, but you can't go wrong with holiday meals at Irredgardless in the downtown Raleigh area. They are doing a final seating at 8pm on Thanksgiving, but reservations fill up really quickly, so don't wait if you decide to give them a try.

We got one from Harris Teeter last year, thinking it would only need reheating. It needed a couple hours of cooking time, so we were not really any better off than just doing the whole thing ourselves.

Parizade in Durham does an excellent Thanksgiving (although I believe its vegetarian). They get a HUGE turnout. I highly recommend.
