PHOENIX — Thanksgiving is days away, which means people across Arizona are getting ready to heat up their ovens, whip up some tasty treats and eat enough to go into a metaphorical food coma.

But for those who are not planning to cook a meal big enough for a small army, there will be plenty of Phoenix-area restaurants open for the holiday.

Of course, hours and participation tend to vary by location, so make sure to call ahead of time to ensure that the restaurant will be open and able to serve you — because no one should go hungry this Thanksgiving.

Here some of the Phoenix-area restaurants that will be open on Thursday.


McCormick Ranch Golf Club

The McCormick Ranch Golf Club in Scottsdale will have available seating from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The club will feature an extensive holiday buffet that will include classics like herb-roasted turkey with cranberry sauce and sage stuffing alongside dishes like candied sweet potatoes with marshmallows, roasted salmon and green bean casserole.

Price: $43 for adults, $22 for children ages 6-12

Cartwright’s Modern Cuisine

Cave Creek’s own Cartwright’s Sonoran Ranch House will serve a Thanksgiving menu from noon to 7 p.m. on Thursday, which includes a trio of appetizers, an entree and a trio of desserts to make sure you leave full and happy.

Make sure to plan ahead, though: You must make reservations if you want to indulge in these fine eats.
