Thanksgiving is a day we mostly think of as a food holiday. But it's a food holiday where you sit around eating a variety of carb-heavy foods and a turkey that is hopefully not too dry.
However, if you're traveling, celebrating on another day, or just aren't partaking, there are loads of chain restaurants that will remain open through Thanksgiving. Some of them are even serving up Thanksgiving fare if you want to eat turkey without the 24 hours of brining and six weeks of it cooking in the oven. (At least, it can feel like it takes that long.)
Below you'll find a list of restaurants -- from Sizzler to Buca di Beppo -- that are keeping the doors wide open for Thanksgiving. It's nice to have somewhere to go, but don't forget that it's not so nice for the employees of these businesses. If you're hitting up one of these spots, be sure to be extra nice to the staff.
