Looking for restaurants open for Thanksgiving Day Dinner in Houston? Whether you are looking for dine-in or take-out options. We have the verified list!

When we think of Thanksgiving, we typically think of a large feast laboriously prepared all day at home. For some households, though, this isn’t the case. Not everyone celebrates Thanksgiving the same way, and some households don’t celebrate the holiday at all. Whatever the case is, sometimes you just need to eat out at a restaurant on Thanksgiving Day.

Luckily, there are quite a few Houston restaurants open on Thanksgiving Day 2022. If you get hungry and need a quick meal out, here’s where you can get one this Thanksgiving Day, November 24th.
