6 Amazing Places to Order your Thanksgiving Turkey this Year

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and whether you’re finding yourself too busy to worry about prep and cooking, or perhaps you’re not the most confident chef, there are loads of options around town for ordering a turkey. From already dressed and prepped all the way to fully cooked, there’s a place to meet all of your turkey needs. These are the best places in Austin to get a turkey this Thanksgiving.

Lee’s Meat Market

1601 W 38th St #12, Austin, TX 78731

Lee’s is a locally owned butcher shop that has just about everything you could ask for to complete your Thanksgiving feast this year. They have uncooked turkeys, the infamous turducken, roasted turkey, and two different turkey feasts if you were looking to make things even easier, and pick up sides as well! 

Johnny G’s Meat Market

11600 Menchaca Rd H, Austin, TX 78748

Johnny G’s is one of Austin’s oldest butcher shops, focusing on both locally sourced and more exotic meats. Their focus is exclusively on meats so you won’t be finding sides and desserts here, but you will find some of the nicest uncooked turkeys around! 

The Backspace

1745 W Anderson Ln Ste 600, Austin, TX 78757

You may not think a pizza place would make the list of go-to establishments to order turkey from, but sure enough – the Backspace is a spectacular choice for a turkey this year! Their wood-fired turkeys have an herb braise, and you can get a whole one or half depending on your group size.

Colleen’s Kitchen

1911 Aldrich St STE 100, Austin, TX 78723

For a classic southern Thanksgiving, Colleen’s has you covered. Their Thanksgiving kit comes with turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes – the works! And the packages come with day-of instructions, including a timeline so you’ll know exactly when everything will be ready.

Walton’s Fancy and Staple

609 W 6th St, Austin, TX 78701

Walton’s has put together a superb Thanksgiving spread this year. It has all the classics, with a slightly elevated twist. Their thyme-rubbed turkey breast is the star, but their white cheddar and gruyere mac n cheese is to die for, along with balsamic brussels sprouts, cornbread stuffing, and amazing pie options.

Rosedale Kitchen and Bar

3800 N Lamar Blvd #170, Austin, TX 78756

Rosedale has done a fantastic collaboration with Longhorn Texas BBQ this Thanksgiving and their turkey is some of the best around. It’s brined for 24 hours in a variety of herbs and a touch of brown sugar, and then slow-smoked over oakwood. They have two meal options with all the sides, or you can get just the turkey, and you can’t forget the pumpkin pie!
