Thanksgiving dinners

Tucson restaurants are serving up Thanksgiving comfort food so that you can enjoy a stress-free day. Whether you’re looking for prepared side dishes only, or the whole shebang, local eateries have an option for you.

The perfect Thanksgiving dinner doesn’t just pop out of thin air. In about a week, families everywhere will be hard at work cooking turkey, potatoes, stuffing and pumpkin pies.

With the stress the holidays bring, it’s easy to get overwhelmed, especially when you’re in charge of a multiple-course meal.

This year, wouldn’t be it nice to relax, kick your feet up and enjoy the football game while the professionals do the cooking? These Tucson restaurants are offering a wide variety of turkey (and vegan!) meals so you can have a tasty Thanksgiving dinner without the stress.
