It’s almost turkey time, everyone.

Because we are already hungry for Thanksgiving food, we’ve compiled a list of local restaurants offering to-go turkey, sides, pies, and more this year.

We’ve also scoured the internet looking for restaurants that will be open and serving food on Thanksgiving for those looking to dine out, and those are below as well.

We’re limiting the list of to-go options to restaurants located in Fayetteville for now, but we included a couple Thanksgiving Day options we found from around the region.

We’ll continue to add to this list as we find others, so feel free to drop us a line and let us know about any places we’ve missed.

Let’s eat some pie, y’all.
