These Atlanta Restaurants Are Open for Thanksgiving Dinner and Takeout

Why brine when you can order online.

It’s hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Everyone’s favorite carb-loaded holiday is going to look a little different this year. COVID-19 cases continue to rise, so you’re probably not going to be traveling or hosting the same amount of visitors as usual this year. Whether you’re spending Thanksgiving on Zoom with your family or with your pandemic pod, you deserve a delicious meal. Many of Atlanta’s restaurants are offering takeout packages to help lighten the load, and some are open for socially distanced dining. From the turkey to the buns to the pie, here’s where to go in Atlanta for Thanksgiving takeout.

Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q

Armour Yards

Family meals and a la carte options are available from the popular barbecue joint. Options include a whole smoked turkey, classic sides such as green bean casserole and cornbread dressing, and pies. If you really feel like treating yourself, tack on an order of the Dr. Pepper chocolate cake. Orders must be picked up at the Fox Bros. catering facility in Armour Yards.

Sweet Auburn BBQ

A Haute Cookie

Grant Park

Pie is great, but we have a soft spot for the seasonally inspired cookies at A Haute Cookie. Flavors like sweet potato with white chocolate, pecans and walnuts, pumpkin snickerdoodle, and sugar pumpkin break up the monotony of your usual Turkey Day desserts (or buy them as a host gift).

Lyla Lila

Baked rigatoni with house-made sausage, broccoli rabe, and Parmigiano isn’t a side dish that springs to mind for Thanksgiving but if it’s from Lyla Lila, then we are here for it.
