It bears repeating: the novel coronavirus pandemic is impacting every aspect of life, and this includes Thanksgiving. As people stay home in their household groups or plan for socially distanced meals, Austin restaurants are here to make the holiday easy for everyone by offering takeout Thanksgiving meals and dishes. This way, everyone can forgo the hassle of cooking for the food-centric holiday and stay within the familiar comforts of home for a safe, stress-free day.

With that, here is Eater’s guide to the best restaurants offering preorders for to-go Thanksgiving dinners and desserts, from brined turkeys at Dai Due, fried turkeys from Hoover’s, briskets from Micklethwait Craft Meats, vegan pot pies from Capital City Bakery, and so many rolls and desserts.

Everything below is listed alphabetically and is available for pickups (delivery services are noted). Those looking specifically for takeout Thanksgiving preorder pies can be helped with this guide. Be sure to wear your mask for pickups and deliveries, and leave ample tips.

This list will be updated leading up to Thursday, November 26. If there is an Austin restaurant offering easy turkeys and the other sides missing below, let us know through austin@eater.com.
