| Perry’s Steakhouse

Thanksgiving is usually a holiday made for group dining; gathering around a large table, sharing a communal meal in a warm space together. But because this is 2020, the holiday is going to look a little different for most folks this year.

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 al fresco on one of these excellent Dallas restaurant patios. Just be sure to make a reservation — otherwise, the drive-thru might be the only available option when Thanksgiving Day actually rolls around.
