Chicago Restaurants Doing Thanksgiving Dinner Takeout

You know what really ruins a great Thanksgiving meal? Having to cook it.

It was one thing when you were a kid and the adults put together the Turkey Day spread, but now that you’re in charge of whipping up those delicious dishes, nothing sounds better than paying someone else to do it for you.

Lucky for you, we feel the exact. same. way.

Here are 8 Chicago restaurants offering takeaway menus on Thanksgiving.

For just 40 bucks a pop, this fresh seafood joint in the northern suburbs will fix you up a spread filled with butternut squash ravioli, crispy zucchini, beet salad, Vermont turkey and gravy, rosemary & sage stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie. And that’s just the half of it. The only draw back of picking up your meal from this Northbrook restaurant? Absolutely no one – and I mean no one – will believe that you cooked it.

 

Bub City

Listen, I’m a Thanksgiving traditionalist: the turkey, the taters, the cranberry sauce – I want the works. But after coming across Bub City’s Nov 23rd menu, I might be changing my tune. A BBQ spot through and through, Bub City is no stranger to curing up delicious meats and eats, but their Thanksgiving takeout menu is truly something special. For just $24.95 per person, you can scrounge up a plate of brisket, turkey, cornbread & sage stuffing, sweet potato fluff and, yes, bbq chicken. Oh, and for when your relatives inevitably start driving you through the roof, Bub City also has late night karaoke going all evening long.

This traditional Lincolnwood restaurant and tavern is serving up a classic T-giving dinner to go on the 23rd. Starting as early as November 22nd you can pick up turkey and gravy, stuffing, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie to bring home and share with your family. Or, to bring home and stuff into your face on the couch. We’re not judging.

 

Parson’s Chicken and Fish

Throw a little bit of southern flare into your Thanksgiving. Parson’s Chicken and Fish is cooking up a mean Turkey Day dinner for two for just $50 this year, including a whole roasted Amish chicken, two pieces of green chile cornbread, one pt. of braised green beans, 1 qt. of mashed potatoes and 1 pt. of salad. You’ll have to find your own pumpkin pie, but after a meal like that, you might not even get there.

 

Nico Osteria

American restaurants aren’t the only ones who can put on a damn good Thanksgiving dinner takeout, okay? Nico Osteria sheds (some) of its Italian flare to create what is, without a doubt, one of the best restaurant holiday meals in the city. At about $130 per order, make sure to call wayyyy in advance to get a taste of Chef Bill Montagne’s killer menu. Though their carryout menu hasn’t been announced just quite yet (Nico’s just started offering takeout Thanksgiving in 2016) our fingers are crossed for another home run.

 

Goddess and the Grocer

With multiple locations across the city, this caterer and deli is known for cooking up a Thanksgiving spread better than Grandma used to make. Offering dozens of options, Goddess and the Grocer, has got you covered from the turkey and pie, to the beer and wine. What’s more, all your favorite Thanksgiving fixens will be available until November 30th, so if someone east your leftovers (looking at siblings everywhere) they’ve got you covered.

 

Frontier

This Wicker Park standard is cooking up full, smoked turkeys for order this Thanksgiving. Offering everything from a teeny 15-pounder to a whopping 20 pound beast, Frontier will cook your bird to juicy perfection. If you’re interested – which, I mean, you totally are – they also offer a myriad of tasty side dishes including sweet potato pie. Be still my beating heart.

NOTE: That was both a reaction of love and, more likely, my heart going into cardiac arrest after eating.

 

Smoke Daddy

Don’t wanna cook at Thanksgiving or Christmas (or Hanukkah or Kwanza or so on and so forth)? Me neither, girl and luckily, Smoke Daddy has got us covered. This hoppin BBQ joint is offering to make dinner orders throughout the holiday season, meaning we may never have to cook again! At least until the end of December, that is. Check out their menu to get a glimpse of all the tasty treats, including, but not limited to: smoked turkey, glazed ham, mashed potatoes, brussel sprouts and a bloODY MARY BAR. Amazing.
