Where to order a Thanksgiving meal to go

When we were growing up, Turkey Day meant going to Grandma's house to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal she spent days preparing and hours cooking, followed by even more hours cleaning up afterward. Times have changed and so have we. 

Preparing a Thanksgiving meal is a lot of work. Some years, it just makes sense to skip straight to the part where you’re enjoying a yummy dinner, a glass of wine, and a relaxing day with loved ones.

So, we've done the leg work for you by preparing a curated list of some of the places in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties where you can order a Thanksgiving meal to go, with little or no prep time and a lot less mess. We updated the options from last year and added more options at more price points.

You can either order a full Thanksgiving meal to go, or sometimes just individual entrees or vegetarian side dishes from the stores and restaurants below.

Some venues let you order Thanksgiving dinner online; for others, you might need to call or place an order in person.

PLEASE NOTE: Specifics such as prices and quantities may differ by location, so please check with the business before ordering and remember that prices don’t include taxes or gratuity. Plus, there are normally additional options that may allow you to serve more or fewer people, plus some vegan options and many à-la-carte items.
