Restaurants serving meals on Christmas and Christmas Eve are even harder to find than restaurants serving on Thanksgiving. If you like Chinese food, you're normally in luck. Many Chinese restaurants are open on Christmas.
Also, most of the hotels are open for Christmas dinner. Your traditional Waffle House, IHOP, Denny's, and other 24-hour restaurants are generally open.
If you go out to eat on the holidays, remember that your server is missing their holiday to serve you, so be generous with your tipping. Call ahead to confirm opening and closing times and menu offerings.
