List: Houston restaurants that plan to stay open for takeout or dine-in on Thanksgiving

Here's where you can get some food over the holiday without turning on your stove or oven.

HOUSTON — Many major restaurant chains will be closed on Thanksgiving,, but some will be open.

Please note that some restaurants are independently owned, so you will want to call ahead to confirm dates/hours that they are open over the holiday season - especially during the coronavirus pandemic which has many companies changing their plans from years past.

Here's a breakdown of some restaurants that plan to be open for takeout or dine-in or both on Thanksgiving Day.

Again, call ahead to make sure they are open and find out what their modified hours may be and also to make sure reservations are not needed.
