Not in the mood to cook for Thanksgiving? You’re not alone! According to the National Restaurant Association, 9% of consumers will eat out for Thanksgiving dinner, 4% said they’d buy a complete meal to-go and 9% said they would pick up portions of the meal (like a side, the turkey, etc.) Lucky for you, Loudoun has some of the best restaurants to help get you through your cooking displeasure. Whether you’re eating your complete meal at a local restaurant, or picking up some side dishes (that you will sneakily put into your own dinnerware and pretend like you labored all day cooking it), we’ve got you covered! If Thanksgiving stresses you out, we have some great places to help you de-stress and unwind too! We hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday!
