13 days ago Eat This, Not That

First off, Happy Thanksgiving! But if you're reading these words on Thursday, November 24th, 2022, you're probably more concerned with food than well wishes. While it's possible to find holiday cheer with ease for some, finding a restaurant that's open on Thanksgiving can be a bit more of a challenge

But don't worry, because plenty of your favorite spots are open as more and more people dine out or grab a snack on the big day.

Whether it's for a breakfast that holds you over until the big feast or for a meal you can actually enjoy after you faked it with your mom's dried-out turkey, here are 11 popular chain restaurants open on Thanksgiving Day 2022.

(Just note that hours and openings do vary sometimes based on location, so maybe call ahead before you jump in the car!)
