Not in the mood to cook a massive bird with 16 sides? There’s help.

Editor’s note: This list has been updated for 2023. Be sure to book your meal and pick-up time early.

The case for Thanksgiving takeout or dine-in at a restaurant: Cooking an 18-pound turkey with many side dishes is stressful. We’ve already clocked in over 1,000 home-cooked meals and snacks since the kids returned to school. Why not give yourself a break?

If you’re looking to celebrate with a Thanksgiving meal but don’t want to deal with the mess of pots and pans, dishes, and the kitchen clean-up, here are some places that offer Thanksgiving takeout (at various price points) with ready-to-eat or ready-to-heat turkey and sides. Vegetarian options are also available.

Tip: Make a decision and order soon. Some places have limited quantities or ordering deadlines.
