If you plan to spend your Thanksgiving in Oklahoma City but don't want to go through the hassle of preparing a holiday feast, you're certainly not the only one.
If you didn't have a traditional Thanksgiving meal prepared elsewhere, you may want to dine out for the holiday, but it's often frustrating for would-be diners because just about every place is closed.
Fortunately, there are a few excellent restaurants open on Thanksgiving Day in the Oklahoma City metro, and it seems like more and more are staying open each year.
Calling ahead for reservations is recommended as spots tend to fill up quickly on the holidays, especially around peak meal times.
