2013 – Going out for Thanksgiving in Bucks

Note: These prices are not current. Please contact the restaurant for this year’s pricing.

Welcome to our most viewed post of the year! More and more people are going out for Thanksgiving. Hey. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. The only bummer is you don’t get leftovers.

Here are the restaurants that are doing it up for Thanksgiving, updated for 2013. If there isn’t detailed information, it’s because they did not get back to me before press time or I couldn’t find anything online. If you are interested in a particular restaurant, give them a call to see what they are doing this year. And, please…let them know you heard about it on Bucks County Taste. Thanks!

Following this listing are a few of the places who are offering Thanksgiving meals for take-out.
