Top Thanksgiving Restaurants in Phoenix

While hosting a large Thanksgiving meal is a wonderful way to bring together family and friends, it’s also extremely labor-intensive and time-consuming.  Want a change this year?  Take the family out instead, and let someone else do all the work (and dishes!) for you! 

We’ve scoured some of the Valley’s favorite restaurants and came up with the short list of places to choose from this holiday.  Call ahead to make reservations and find out hours of operation for the holiday.  Bon appetit!
