Raise your hand if you’re ready for turkey?

Ready or not, it’s happening next week, and as always, we’ve compiled a list of local restaurants offering to-go turkey, sides, pies, and more for Thanksgiving this year.

We’ve also scoured the internet looking for restaurants that will actually 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. Food!
