Lol, thanks. I just want candied yams made with marshmallows. I don't want to take home some fancy concoction and have everyone think it's nasty.

I just got off the phone with Rudy's. The turkey is $24.99, dressing $13.95, gravy $5.50, and pies are from $9.95 to $11.95. They also have ham available but this is all they have.

I have decided to order from Luby's. Thanks for all the suggestions because I didn't think to look at all those restaurants. I hope this thread is also helpful for someone else.

LUBY'S! Great choice. You will love it, I promise. Holy cow, they do a great Thanksgiving dinner!

If you live on the Northside you could attend the Thanksgiving brunch at the J.W. Marriott resort. They have a huge selection of food, but it's pretty expensive.

omaha steaks has a good selection for not to expensive of a price.
you will need to search for ham or turkey, or whatever you want.
They have a put together turkey dinner if you search for thanksgiving.

Fredericksburg has a list of restaurants that will be serving Thanksgiving Dinner, some extravagant, some cheap.
Even Subway is on the list.

Fredericksburg TX | Texas Hill Country

In the Kerrville area, there is an amazing tea room called Alexandra's Tea House.
They always do special holiday meals. I ate there on Christmas eve once.
It was spectacular.

For some reason their website doesn't work.
They may have shut down.
If you want a legitimate British tea (meal), be sure to try it sometime.

To respond to L210, I agree that Luby's may be the cheapest option (and best if you want a fried turkey), but for some people who put their health first or need a vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free option, Central Market or Whole Foods is the best.

Online Ordering | Whole Foods Market

Whole Foods is more of an easy option, less choices, one easy meal that's healthy.
Central Market is for vegans, vegetarians, gluten-free, and has many different choices.
They even have a hanukkah and new year's dinner on the menu.
They offer hand made cookies, gift boxes, decorative christmas trees.
They offer poultry, fish, ham, beef. Any kind of meat you could possibly see yourself eating at the holidays.
They have a holiday wine selection. Pies and desserts.
You can order in store or online.

The Bright Shawl has a meal for 10-12 available for pickup.
All of the other places you pay to eat there.

A word of advice, I have ordered to go at exclusively eat-in places before, so if something sounds good to you and you want to bring it home, call ahead and ask if you can order stuff to go, especially if you are a small party.
If it's just a party of two or 3 I don't see why they wouldn't let you pick up a meal there.

That's all.

If you're family isn't very big, Costco sells a pre cooked turkey breast. All you have to do it heat it up. We've done it the last couple of holidays and it's always come out great.
No need to get up at the crack of dawn to start the turkey, and if we can cook it, I imagine it's pretty hard to screw it up as neither my wife or I can cook.

Not sure if it's come out yet but sometime around this time, the San Antonio Express News has a full page in the Taste section dedicated to all of the places offering Thanksgiving meal packages. It's a great one stop shop to see what SA has to offer in that regard.
