Thanksgiving is just days away!  That means families will be gathering together to enjoy a feast prepared by loved ones.  Unless your family isn't able to make it this year.  :(  Well, you're in luck!  There are some Amarillo restaurants who will be open Thanksgiving Day.

There are only three of us in my immediate family and have no family here in Amarillo.  This year we aren't able to make it out of town for Thanksgiving and it seems like a lot of trouble to make a whole dinner for just us.  So, we decided to look into restaurants that would be open on Thanksgiving Day.

If your family is like ours or if you are alone this year, these are your options.

-Applebee's (both locations).
-Big Texan Steak Ranch (buffet is 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.).

-Cracker Barrel (6 a.m. to 10 p.m.).

-Denny's (all locations open 24 hours).

-Furr's in Wolflin Square (11 a.m. to 8 p,m.).

-Furr's on Soncy (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.).

-Golden Corral (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.).

-Hummer's Sports Cafe (opening at 5 p.m.).

-IHOP (both locations open 24 hours).

-Iron Skillet (open 24 hours).

-Lin's Grand Buffet (11 a.m. to 10 p.m.).

-Saltgrass Steakhouse (11 a.m. to 4 p.m.).

-Waffle House (all locations open 24 hours).

While it is terrible that these places are open on Thanksgiving and the workers have to be away from their family, I am thankful that my family can go have a nice meal and not be wasteful.  And as you can see, there is a sports cafe open for the football games!  Are there any places that I left off the list?
