Don’t feel like cooking up a massive Thanksgiving dinner this year? Lack the culinary prowess to pull off a feast worthy of the big day? No worries. Instead, order up the ultimate holiday spread from one of these restaurants in Buda and beyond.

Bill Miller Bar-B-Q

What’s more Texas than barbecue for Thanksgiving dinner? Bill Miller’s Buda location offers a variety of decked-out holiday spreads with all the food and fixins you can imagine – all with a classic Texas barbecue twist. Choose from just-the-turkey packages all the way up to party packs loaded with sides. They also have honey baked hams and pies in five – yes, five – flavors. Hungry yet?

Fresa’s Chicken al Carbon

This popular chicken joint just up the road in South Austin cooks up some killer Thanksgiving spreads. It’s not cheap, but rest assured you’ll be eating good. They offer whole-turkey and turkey breast meals with their delicious take on gravy, otherworldly chorizo stuffing, and cranberry sauce, and your choice of mouthwatering side dishes.

Lee’s Meat Market

For a fully loaded holiday feast, tee up a Thanksgiving order from Lee’s Meat Market in Austin. They offer a full holiday menu filled with all sorts of goodness, including a classic turkey feast, a holiday ham dinner, a beef tenderloin spread, and a seasoned pork rack-anchored option. You can’t go wrong here!

Tiny Pies

No Thanksgiving feast is complete without pie! Order from one of Tiny Pies’ multiple Austin area locations, and punctuate your holiday meal in style. Choose from savory offerings like their turkey pot pie four pack, or go for something sweet like their apple crumb, apple lattice, or pumpkin chai pies. Don’t worry. All the pies are full size – and guaranteed to be a hit with your crew this Thanksgiving.
