Want to cut back on some (or all) of the cooking for Thanksgiving? Check out this list of Cincinnati area restaurants that offer Thanksgiving dinners and desserts for pickup.
My own family gathering will be smaller this year and I decided to really hunt through the offerings to see if maybe this would be the year to just scale it back. And I have to admit that I’m pretty blown away by some of these offerings! By the time you buy a turkey and all the sides and make the desserts… wow! Ordering it for pickup is looking better and better.
Yep, these Thanksgiving to-go combinations look pretty sweet for 2023!
