'Tis the season for turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and all the fixins'. Regardless of how it gets to your table — homemade or store-bought — there's no denying that the Thanksgiving feast is the best meal of the year. If you're away from home or simply want to step away from the kitchen, these restaurants have decided to keep their doors open just for you (and, well, the rest of the country).

Friendly reminder: When heading out to grab food on Thanksgiving, remember to call your local franchise to double-check their holiday hours. While these restaurant chains all plan on opening their doors, specific hours of operation vary by region. Whatever choice you make, we hope you eat well. After all, you need to have all the energy you can get when shopping the best Black Friday deals this year!
