Thanksgiving Dining Options


All the trimmings, none of the fuss: Austin Thanksgiving options for everyone

At Blairfield Realty, we LOVE Thanksgiving. There’s no better occasion to enjoy a leisurely day (and long weekend) in the company of family and friends, eat to our hearts’ content and reflect on the abundance in our lives – including our wonderful clients!

In case you happen to love Thanksgiving, too, but aren’t so crazy about the cooking-and-cleaning-up part of the day, we’ve compiled a list you might want to check out soon.

It’s a list of restaurants that offered dine-in and/or takeout Thanksgiving meal options in 2014 and 2015. Ranging from casual to fancy and serving up everything from pies to full dinners with all the trimmings, there’s something for everyone.

Note that menu options and availability may change in 2016, so there are no guarantees about what these restaurants have in store for Thanksgiving 2016 – so be sure to call or go online to find out!
