Can’t Cook This Thanksgiving? Here’s Where to Get Dinner in Tyler, Texas
Believe it or not, our Texas sized Thanksgiving celebrations are about a month and a half away. Many of y'all are putting together that initial list of what will be cooked or who will bringing which sides to the big feast. Thanksgiving is no easy undertaking. It can be a problem for some East Texans, however, because they either will have to work or just don't have the equipment or the knowhow to put together a big meal. That's where some of our local restaurants, and even a couple of grocery stores, can help by offering already cooked turkeys and sides to make your Thanksgiving meal a little less of a hassle.
Not Everyone Can Cook a Full Thanksgiving Meal
A Tyler resident recently reached out in a Tyler focused Facebook group to ask if any restaurants besides the now closed Traditions offered a take home Thanksgiving meal. Not everyone can spend the hours to put together a big meal for the family. Work can get in the way, they may just not have the knowhow to cook a meal like that properly or some may just a need a break this year from doing it all themselves. As Tyler area residents will do, they offered some great locations around East Texas to be able to pick up a turkey and sides or where to go to sit down and enjoy a meal together.
