If you want your Thanksgiving meal done by someone else, you can have someone else make it for you, or you can order it to go. If you're looking for a sit-down meal, we made a list of restaurants that are serving on Thanksgiving.

This list is the places who are selling it to-go. Most have deadlines that are at least a few days before the holiday. Now's the time.
