7 Best Chain Restaurants Open on Thanksgiving
Whether you don't feel like cooking or you're just looking for a low-key meal, there's no rule that says you have to eat at home on Thanksgiving. And after months of cooking during the pandemic, you might be ready to do something a little more special this holiday season. Even if you can't be with loved ones who live across the country, you can still head to a restaurant with your housemates (or quarantine pod) during the holiday season.
If you're looking for a place to spend Thanksgiving, look no further. These chain restaurants will be open on Thanksgiving, so you don't have to worry about a thing.
