Note: This post has been updated for 2016. Click here for where to go out for Thanksgiving in Bucks.
So. Thanksgiving. You’re tired. And no one else in the family wants to do it. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. You can go out for Thanksgiving instead of making it at home. In fact, so many people are doing it these days that more and more restaurants are staying open and offering prix fixe deals for the day. Some places are also offering “Turkey To Go,” so you can bring the whole meal home. Your guests need never know…
I did a little bit of research and found many Bucks County restaurants (and nearby) open with Thanksgiving special menus. There are probably more. Let me know of any others by all means, and I’ll add them to the post. These are in alphabetical order with any interesting details I could find.
Following the listing are a few of the places who are offering Thanksgiving meals for take-out.
And, please…let them know you heard about it on Bucks County Taste. Thanks!
