Thanksgiving Day, for many, is a time to stay home and cook mountains of food for family and friends, but let’s face it: not everyone likes to cook. That’s why many restaurants stay open on Thanksgiving Day, serving either traditional Thanksgiving dinners or their own unique spin on the holiday feast.
