From to-go container to your table, no one has to know.

Want to enjoy a full Thanksgiving spread in the comfort of your home without having to turn your oven on once? Something to be grateful for in 2023 is the fact that so many restaurant chains now offer to-go Thanksgiving meals for carryout and delivery.

So whether you burnt the turkey and are in a panic on Thanksgiving Day or just don't feel like working your biceps with a potato masher, these restaurants have you covered. Here are the chains with full Thanksgiving takeout meals in 2023.

Buca di Beppo

This Italian-American restaurant is offering two Thanksgiving bundles to feed either a small group of three, starting at $105, or a slightly larger group of six, starting at $160. Both bundles can be ordered hot and ready to serve, or as a heat-and-serve meal. The Buca di Beppo Thanksgiving meal comes with sliced white meat turkey, homestyle gravy, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, spicy Italian sausage stuffing, seasonal vegetables, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie. The Thanksgiving Feast To Go bundles are available to order for pickup from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. starting November 20 and running until November 23.


Cracker Barrel

Cracker Barrel is offering multiple meal bundles this Thanksgiving ranging from $105-$155: 

  • The Heat n' Serve Family Dinner feeds 4-6 people and includes one oven-roasted turkey breast, cornbread dressing, turkey gravy, cranberry relish, sweet potato casserole, a choice of one country side, and sweet yeast rolls.
  • The Heat n' Serve Feast option feeds 8-10 people and includes all of the aforementioned items, plus an extra oven-roasted turkey breast, a choice of two Country Sides, and both a pumpkin and a pecan pie.
  • Both of these meal bundles can be ordered for pickup between November 18 and 25, are ready to serve from oven to table in two hours, and must be used within 72 hours of pickup. The website notes both bundles are ready to go "from oven to table in 2 hours."


    The Hot and Ready Family Dinner is a little different; it feeds 4-6 and arrives ready to serve. It comes with Turkey n' Dressing, turkey gravy, cranberry relish, green beans, Macaroni n' Cheese, sweet potato casserole, sweet yeast rolls, and pumpkin pie.


From Friday, November 17 through Wednesday, November 22 at 6 p.m. Eastern, Denny's customers can pre-order the Turkey & Dressing Dinner Bundle online. The bundle feeds up to four and includes carved turkey breast, savory bread stuffing, red-skinned mashed potatoes, turkey gravy, cranberry sauce, and a choice of a second side such as herb-glazed corn, vegetable medley, or macaroni and cheese. (Pie can be ordered a la carte, whole or by the slice.) The Denny's bundle must be ordered at least 24 hours before the desired pickup time.


Fogo de Chão

Brazilian steakhouse chain Fogo de Chão is offering a stacked to-go menu for Thanksgiving. Customers can fill their table with anything from bacon-wrapped chicken and mashed potatoes to top sirloin and smoked salmon. Thanksgiving pickup and delivery orders can be made all through the long holiday weekend until Sunday, November 26, while supplies last, but customers should give the restaurant at least 24 hours' notice.


Golden Corral

The buffet chain is offering a few Thanksgiving dinner to go options ranging from roughly $110-$130, depending on which Holiday Meal you choose. Golden Corral's Holiday Feast To Go Meals serve six to eight people and include a roasted turkey, Holiday Glazed Ham, or Holiday Beef Roast with mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, an additional side, cranberry sauce, yeast rolls with honey butter, and a whole pie. Orders must be placed 72 hours in advance.


Now, if anyone asks why there's filet mignon on the table or think it's a bit odd that this year's stuffing includes spicy Italian sausage, just tell them you've been practicing your culinary skills all year long in anticipation of this special day. Then, make sure you've thrown away every container and bag with the restaurant's logo on it. Happy feasting, friends.
