Cooler weather marks the start of “our season” at Rainbow Lodge. It’s the time of year when the harvest is celebrated, the decorations go up, and the fireplaces cast a warm glow. Let us help you bring some exciting Lodge flavors home with our popular Thanksgiving Carry Out Menu!

Make executive chef Mark Schmidt’s roasted game meats the stunning centerpiece of your table. The numerous poultry choices include: duck, pheasant, goose, partridge and, of course, turkeys. Hearty buffalo tenderloin, venison and elk also are welcome, off-the-beaten path additions to the Thanksgiving table.

When guests arrive, they’ll appreciate a warm appetizer. Start them off with Rainbow Lodge customers’ perpetual favorite: Smoked Duck Gumbo with andouille sausage and wild rice pilaf. For a conversation-starter, try the Buffalo and Black Bean Chili.

Of course, after a Thanksgiving meal, guests want a little sweet something at the end. Satisfy and surprise them with a pan of our Croissant Bread Pudding With Whiskey Sauce or a bourbon pecan pie (or two).

For those who didn’t cook at home and end up with leftovers, Rainbow Lodge’s traditional Thanksgiving Day “Late Night” Snack Packs are the perfect solution. For only $5, get just enough roast turkey, dressing and gravy for a sandwich or a light meal.

View our entire holiday takeout menu online then call (713) 861-8666 to place your Thanksgiving to-go order now. The turkeys will go quick, so order as early as possible. Otherwise, please place your order no later than 48 hours ahead of the desired pick-up time.
