Restaurants open on Thanksgiving in (and around) Fayetteville

Let’s face it. Not everyone wants to cook a huge meal on Thanksgiving Day.

For some of us, we have no idea how one would begin to cook a whole turkey, and we don’t really want to know. Others of us are intimidated by the thought of making stuffing. Some of us just don’t have room in our houses for all those (crazy?) family members.

Whatever the reason, we know there are those of you who are looking for a place to dine out on Turkey Day this week, so we’ve have compiled a list of places that are planning to be open this year.

Some of them will be serving Thanksgiving dinner, and some of them are serving waffles, and some of them will be serving Art’s Place burgers.

Feel free to let us know about others in the comments, and we’ll add them to the list.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
