Let’s face it, preparing a holiday meal is a lot of work. Some years, it just makes sense to skip straight to the part where you’re enjoying a turkey dinner, a glass of wine, and the company of family and friends.
Want to eliminate the preparation and cleanup chores for Thanksgiving 2019? There are dozens of restaurants and grocery stores around Atlanta that offer turkey dinners to go, with plenty of options and plenty of price ranges. Here are a few of them.
In case you didn’t already know:
Thanksgiving falls on Thursday, November 28th this year!
