Thanksgiving Dining out ~ "Foodie Friday" ~ 11/18/16

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

Hard to believe Thanksgiving Day is almost here.  For many it’s time to clean the house … start planning a day in the kitchen ... you know the routine ... or maybe not! Take the stress out of the holiday and let someone else do the cooking! Here are a few restaurants around Austin that will make your day fun and stress free! For some it's best to let your fingers do the dialing for reservations because some restaurants are already booked up. Just know for those who would rather leave the cooking to someone else there are dining options!

You suggest some nice alternatives Dorie, but we had Thanksgiving out with the family one year, but it just wasn't the same. I'm sure it's a good choice for many though...

Dorie: If family wasn't coming into town my hubby and I would have probably gone out for dinner this year. Good option for those who do not want to cook.

Great resource for those looking to eat out. I actually prefer being home because the leftovers are my favorite part!

Good morning, Dorie - I've seen quite a few restaurants in our area with similar offerings -- I think it's a great alternative to those who don't like spending time in the kitchen.

Hi Dorie... I, too, posted the other day about where people can dine out in Charlotte on Thanksgiving. It's so nice to know there are options besides cooking all day.

Hi Dorie Dillard ,  There a lot of people who have the traditional Thanksgiving meal and invite family, but there also a lot who either don't have much of a family, or they are spread all over the country.  I remember many Holiday dinners at a restaurant, while we were traveling.
