Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I mean how great is it that the only responsibility is eating? And after you stuff yourself silly, most of us get the day after off. So, why waste your time slaving away in the kitchen? Let these Atlanta restaurants prepare your feast for you so you can relax with your guests.
Get Dinner to Go – Here’s where I’m getting my feast this year. Their description won me over. Herb brine and injected with garlic and sage blend? Yum! Plus their pricing for a full dinner that feeds 8 -10 seems so reasonable at $139. I thought about just ordering the turkey for $59, but then I thought I’d just throw in the sides and dessert too. They offer varieties like Cajun or Jerk spiced turkeys too.
Most places only give you a choice of two sides but here you three and dinner rolls. I’m getting the Green Bean Casserole, Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Seafood Casserole. Can’t decide between Ham or Turkey? If you’ve got a huge crowd (like 20 or 30) get one of each + five sides for just $249. Check out their holiday menu here.
Don’t want a whole turkey? We understand. That’s why they are offering a turkey breast (feeds 4-6 for $40.99). Other options include whole turkeys, beef tenderloin, cornbread, candied sweet potato soufflé, apple cranberry pie and much more. Orders must be placed and paid for by 5 p.m. on Monday, November 21st.
Christophe’s To Go -Don’t spend in the kitchen all day this Thanksgiving! Let Chef Christophe do all the work. And the best part? They deliver it right to your door on Thanksgiving morning. No shopping, no cleaning, and no cooking. Get full meals delivered to you which includes turkey breast and sides. Or you make the Turkey and Christophe’s will deliver the sides These include cornbread stuffing, green bean casserole, asparagus and mushroom casserole. They’ve also got just sides available in case you are interested in making the Turkey yourself.
Who doesn’t love the incredible barbecue from DBA? Well let them do the cooking for on Thanksgiving. A full cooked turkey with all the sides like mashed potatoes, cornbread stuffing, cranberry relish, and green bean casserole feeds eight people. The full feast is $174.99 and the turkey only is $69.99.
Another spot offering turkey breasts is Parish. Planning an intimate gathering? Parish is perfect for that with a bone in turkey breast and gravy for $30. Add sides of Cornbread and sage stuffing or classic sides like green bean casserole for $12 each. Don’t forget their delicious signature cranberry port jelly.
PeachDish – The meal kit delivery company is offering holiday boxes with all the ingredients & recipes needed to make classic holiday sides at home orders can be placed in advance at PeachDish.com. Sides are quite expensive (considering you still have to prepare the food) at $60 up $10 from last year. Sides are items like Creamed Brussels Sprouts, Candied Sweet Potatoes. They even have turkey breasts and hams available as an add on. Turkeys are $130.
Let the Smoke Ring team cook you and your family Thanksgiving dinner. Chef Jordan Wakefield is taking turkey orders. Each 20 pound turkey will cost $75 (yikes – thats up from $50 two years ago!), and Smoke Ring’s whole menu of sides by the quart will be available for purchase as well.

Feeding 6 to 8 people, this includes turkey breast, farmer’s salad with brie, pears, cranberries with a pumpkin seed vinaigrette. Sides include collards with bacon and Ancho-smoked gouda mac and cheese. Place your order by November 17th. Bonus: There’s Wahoo Wine and Provisions next door where you can pick up your wine to go with your Thanksgiving feast.
Queen of Cream – Oh my gosh! I mean, if their ice cream is so amazing, can you imagine how good their pies are? So, here’s the deal: they are offering 4 different pie selections, each for $28. Choose from Traditional Apple, Pumpkin Brown Butter, Pecan or…get ready for this…Malted S’more Ice Cream Pie. All pies are made with an all-butter dough using European butter. The pecans and apples are both local. I got my pies here last year and thought I’d died and gone to heaven when I tasted them!
