If you plan to spend your Thanksgiving in Oklahoma City but don't want to prepare a feast at home, there are a number of restaurants that remain open for business to feed the masses on the holiday.

Many restaurants in the Oklahoma City metro area also offer take-out holiday dinners you can order in advance and pick up on occasions like Thanksgiving or Christmas. However, if you'd rather skip the clean-up, finding a place that's open and serving on Thanksgiving can be a great alternative.

Calling ahead for reservations is highly recommended as tables tend to fill up quickly on the holidays, especially around peak dining times from noon to 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Turkey Day.
