Several restaurants have you covered, whether you need the full spread, just a tasty bird or a few more sides and desserts to round out your menu.

BB’s Tex-Orleans, 9719 West Broadway: This year, serve Thanksgiving dinner with a bit of Texas-meets-Louisiana flair. This popular café has flavorful meats and sides available for pre-order through 11 a.m. on November 23 for pickup on Thanksgiving day. We advise ordering soon, as BB’s usually sells out.

Sides are sold cold by the quart for reheating at home.

They cost $13.99 to $22.99 depending on the selection. Complete the meal with Half Pan Bread Pudding for $49.99 or Whole Key Lime Cheesecake for $42.99.
