Thanksgiving is the ultimate holiday for food indulgence (or, let’s face it, over-indulgence), but for some the idea of spending all day in the kitchen is cause for a ruined appetite. If you look forward to the eating more than the preparing, there are a number of restaurants in the valley that are offering fully prepared Thanksgiving feasts that you can order ahead of time and pick up to serve fresh on Thursday.

While the options are plentiful, many of the restaurants featured below are already close to receiving their maximum amount of orders, so if you are hoping to enjoy a pre-made Thanksgiving dinner place your order today.

There are options to add additional people to the menu, and customers can make their dinners even more decadent with their à la carte menu, with brown sugar glazed ham, ambrosia fruit salad, scalloped oysters and more.

Finish the meal off with a pecan pie tartlette complimented with pumpkin ice cream and cinnamon crème anglaise.
