Tennessee State Parks officials are pleased to announce that all eight state park restaurants will be open Thursday, Nov. 27, serving a traditional Thanksgiving Day feast. Thanksgiving turkey and all the traditional trimmings, along with an assortment of desserts, will be available beginning at 11 a.m. until closing at state park restaurants across Tennessee.

Cumberland Mountain State Park -- (931) 484-7186
David Crockett State Park (Lawrenceburg) -- (931) 762-9541
Fall Creek Falls State Park -- (423) 881-5241
Henry Horton State Park -- (931) 364-2222
Montgomery Bell State Park -- (615) 797-3101
Natchez Trace State Park -- (731) 968-8176

And if you go down the road where Billy's is there's a back road that leads to McDonald's?

I'm sure that's it! We've been dying to go there and for some reason never have. Good to know you like the food. We'll have to check it out.

Hubby killed the FCF idea. Doesn't want to drive that far. So if Billy's is open, we'll probably give that a whirl - thanks all!!
YESSS that's it!! I was raised in that neighborhood many many years ago and attended that church.... so think of me while you enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner

I think you are thinking of the place where Shoney's used to be. It is now called Andy's.
Billy's Diner in on Hwy 55 near Morrison.
These places make their dinners by warming up cans...you can do that at home.
For a turkey day meal...I want the real thing.

You're absolutely right! I was talking to hubby about it today and he said the same thing. Billy's is the other one that's on 70S/Hwy 55 headed out toward Centertown. I'm not sure where Morrison is. I work so much and we've not been here all that long, I still don't know all the little towns.

Yes, but they wash the plates for you when you're done and put away the left overs. I don't have anyone to do that part for me at home. So out we'll go to find something that I don't have to cook, clean up after or put away when we're done. I'm taking full advantage of this suddenly small household!!

I plan on enjoying this small family thing!!

And it doesn't necessarily have to be McMinnville. We'll go to Cookeville, Crossville, Murfreesboro. Just want some place open that day that will have a nice turkey dinner with all the goodies!!
Yes you can go to Golden Corrall on 1380 Interstate Drive Cookeville Tenn. I go to golden corrall here in virginia all the time it is very reasonable and great food

Golden Corral sounds like a good idea and you can take some with you for later. I love warm stuffing sandwiches with thin slices of turkey and cranberry sauce on sourdough bread. OMG.....can't wait!
