If the idea of spending Turkey Day chopping, peeling and stirring makes you cringe then fear not because there are several area restaurants that are willing to do all the work for you.
La Casa Italian Grill has seats available for a traditional homemade Thanksgiving meal, $29.95 per person. Call 770-609-6311.
The Diner At North Point will be hosting their third annual Thanksgiving dinner from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. A traditional prix fixe menu will be available for $16.95. If you’d rather stay away from the stuffing and cranberry’s then the regular menu will also be available.
While reservations are not required they are encouraged for speedy service and should be made no later than 6 p.m.
Brian Roberts is the director of Operations, Banquets, and Guest Relations and says that along with your choice of turkey, ham or cornish hen they’ll also be mashed potatoes, candied yams, stuffing & gravy, seasonal vegetables and cranberry sauce.
“This is our third season serving Thanksgiving dinner and as we prepared over 500 dinners last year, we expect to be in the same range this Thursday,” says Roberts.
There is plenty to go around and Mr. Roberts is excited about serving his guests an affordable, delicious meal this Thanksgiving.
“We encourage our guests that do not care to cook, or clean, at home to
come see us for a more personal touch than they can or will get anywhere else at a very reasonable price.”
Here are some other Thanksgiving day options:
Ray’s Killer Creek will be offering a special Thanksgiving menu from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Other popular menu items will also be available.
