Thanksgiving is one of the biggest family holidays of the year—and possibly the most delicious. Planning and executing the “perfect” Thanksgiving experience for our loved ones, however, can be a little overwhelming.
This year, perhaps you’re thankful for the many great restaurants in the area who have offered to do all of the work for you. Maybe this is the year you say “no thanks” to hours of side dish prep and a sink full of dishes, or fear-no-more the possibility of a burned turkey.
Dining out on Thanksgiving is acceptable now. It’s actually one of the busiest days for many restaurants, second only to Mother’s Day. Many people are exchanging their aprons for the opportunity to absorb a quiet day and quality time with their loved ones.
If this sounds appealing to you, you’ve come to the right place. Whether you’d like to make reservations or order a meal to bring home, a holiday feast awaits you in Frisco.

The extensive special occasion menu will include a Mimosa bar and the Chef’s Carving Table, featuring Prime Rib, Turkey, and Bourbon Glazed Ham. Among many other intriguing dishes are the Honey Ginger Glazed Carrots, Parmesan and Vegetable Risotto, Caramel Bread Pudding, and Pumpkin Tarts. For reservations or catering, please call 214-705-7775.
Break tradition this Thanksgiving by visiting City Works at The Star in Frisco for your fix of food, drink, and sports. The event they like to call “Not Your Mama’s Thanksgiving” will run the whole weekend of Nov. 23rd – 26th and is a great place to bring friends or make new friends. With 28 HDTVs, it’s also a great place to watch the Cowboys play on Thanksgiving Day! (Cowboys play at home at 3:30pm CST.)
Their Thanksgiving menu features: the Slow Roasted Prime Rib Dinner with chive potato puree, sausage sage stuffing, Weiss beer, cranberry compote, and red wine demi-glace. Also available is the Carved Turkey Dinner which includes a herb roasted, chive potato puree, sausage sage stuffing, Weiss beer cranberry compote, and white gravy. Open 12noon to 8pm, and reservations are encouraged. Call 469-850-1850.
This warm and welcoming, yet upscale, space that is known for its “honest food and drink” will offer two special dining opportunities on Thanksgiving Day.
The morning menu, from 6am – 11am ($25.95 per person), and the second menu from 11am – 9pm ($65.95 per person, $25.95 for ages 10 and under). Both dining experiences will feature their signature brunch menu items, among other exquisite traditional and non-traditional Thanksgiving fare.
Take note: the Frisco location is the ONLY Neighborhood Services location which offers a brunch menu year-round and it’s NOT the typical slices of cantaloupe and muffins. Rather, think avocado toast, smoked pork hash, and salted dulce de leche brulee… yummers! To make a reservation, call (469) 287-0000, or visit their website.
