Thanksgiving is two weeks away. That means in thirteen days or 312 hours or 18,720 minutes from now, we’ll be gathered around with friends and family, watching football, cooking the largest turkey we could find, baking pies and cakes, prepping the stuffing and the green bean casserole (my favorite and a Thanksgiving must if I’m invited to your home). Once the prepping, cooking/baking and in some cases, when the tears are wiped away, you can eat, laugh, yell, scream and chat around the table. Then the cleaning begins. And it never ends.

If this doesn’t sound appealing to you – and that’s okay if it doesn’t – you still deserve to have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. You deserve the works too. We’re talking about turkey, ham, prime rib, mountains of potatoes and all the pies you can dream of. Best of all, you can let someone else do all the cooking and cleaning up for you. Here are three Tempe area restaurants that will be open on Thanksgiving and are more than happy to take care of everything for you so your Thanksgiving can be relaxing and stress-free.
