If you’re not up to wrangling a turkey, if you want to avoid doing any dishes AT ALL, or if you simply want to enjoy a quiet meal out on the town, you’ll want to know which restaurants are open on Thanksgiving.
My family recently moved to Lynchburg, Virginia, which is a fairly traditional, family-oriented town, so I thought most of the restaurants would be closed on Thanksgiving in order to let their employees have time with their own families. Then I remembered #BlackFridaycreep and #overcommercialism and #shoppingonThursday and thought the better of my initial idea: people who shop are people who gotta EAT!
Whether you and yours are solo in the area or have a tradition of dining out on Turkey Day, or whether you’re just going to be a hungry shopper, I’ve compiled a list of 15–count’em, 15!!–local Lynchburg restaurants that will serve diners on Thanksgiving Day.
