 Joe Daniel Price

Christmas is everyone's favorite time of year, but it's also a lot of work. Between attending office holiday parties, mailing cards, and buying presents, no one's judging you if you don't feel like cooking a big meal for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. If you're feeling ready to throw in the oven mitts, know that there are plenty of restaurants that will be open for the holiday on December 24 and 25.

If you would like to be pampered and feast on delicious food that someone else cooked, the Dallas area has plenty of restaurants that are up to the task. Just make sure to make your reservation as soon as possible, as these restaurants tend to be fully booked well before Christmas!
