From Roasted Turkey To Sugar Pumpkin Pie, Celebrate Thanksgiving With All The Turkey Day Essentials At These DFW Restaurants.

It’s the most stressful time of the year again.

While the holidays and the get-togethers may be fun, memorable and jolly, planning a feast for each one is exhausting. Let’s be real. First, you have to decide a proper feast to accommodate everyone from the picky eaters to your vegan cousins. An if there are too many cooks in your kitchen, don’t even get us started with the whole “who’s really in charge of the menu” argument. It’s always your mother, by the way, somehow.

So, if you’re throwing in the towel this year and refusing to pull out your favorite pie dish — y’know the one that was passed down to you from your grandmother — we totally get it, but don’t give up yet!

Thanksgiving is next week and you still have some time to have a delicious meal. Don’t freak out trying to dig through your old cookbooks — save it for Christmas instead. This year, visit one of the many DFW restaurants serving top-notch feasts if you have yet to make any plans.

Don’t feel like going out? Some places are offering to-go options so you can watch the Las Vegas Raiders v. Dallas Cowboys game at home. Whatever makes your Thanksgiving feel like home.
