Thanksgiving is usually a holiday made for group dining; gathering around a large table, sharing a communal meal in a warm space together. But since the pandemic began in 2020, the holidays have looked a little different for most folks. This year, some folks are venturing back out for a delicious feast, or cooking some or all of a big meal at home. Either way, Dallas and Fort Worth, which occupies the traditional homeland of the Lenapehoking Kiikaapoi (Kickapoo), Jumanos, Tawakoni, and Wichita people, has plenty of options.

Skip out on the stress of cooking a meal and head out to pick up some of the city’s finest Turkey Day takeout, or consider taking the family to enjoy smoked ham and all the sides at a favorite restaurant. Just be sure to reserve in advance — otherwise, the drive-thru might be the only available option when Thanksgiving Day actually rolls around.
