Let's face it, not everyone likes to cook...especially a big Thanksgiving dinner! It's a lot of work plus you have dishes to clean up afterward. Well this Thanksgiving forget the spatula, or whatever you use to cook a turkey, and hop in the car and let one of these restaurants do all the cooking for you!

  • TGS Cupcakery

    TGS Cupcakery on Kemp across from McDonald's serves not only sweets, but also some of the best home-style comfort food you'll find in Wichita Falls. They will be serving a Thanksgiving meal from 11am-2pm on Thursday. Turkey, Ham, all the fixings, chocolate, pumpkin, and pecan pie while they last. They will open at 7am in case you want to start the day off with some coffee or dessert. Kitchen closes at 1:45 pm.

  • Starbucks

    A good idea for our less carnivorous and more sweet toothed friends for a yummy Thanksgiving is Starbucks! A warm spiced pumpkin latte with a loaf of pumpkin bread or a pumpkin cream cheese muffin sounds delicious not to mention it's probably lighter than a lot of other options for Thanksgiving!
