Thanksgiving Eats

Gather ‘round the table at these restaurants on Thanksgiving.



A picturesque Thanksgiving is filled with family, fall decorations, and a fried turkey. Imagine a Hallmark card, a Norman Rockwell painting, or the latest Deadpool 2 promo poster. But if you’re looking to eat out this Thanksgiving, there will be plenty of options in MWM. So take the weight of cooking that giant meal (and cleaning up afterwards) off and bring the family to one of these restaurants:


Golden Corral

200 Basic Dr, West Monroe, LA 71292

Phone: 318-614-0119

This newly opened restaurant is perfect for when you know you want to eat, but you can’t decide what you want to eat. The options are endless. Plus, it’ll be open on Thanksgiving Day for lunch and dinner. It’s easy to seat a big group, so you can invite the whole family.


Cracker Barrel

309 Constitution Dr, West Monroe, LA 71292

Phone: 318-325-5505

Want the Thanksgiving meal without the hassle? Cracker Barrel serves its special Thanksgiving meal on this day. You can dine-in, grab a cooked family meal to-go, or order ahead of time and get one that you can heat and serve later. This restaurant gives you great options.


Piccadilly Cafeteria

2203 Louisville Ave, Monroe, LA 71201

Phone: 318-325-5414

Whether it’s Thanksgiving Day or just a Tuesday, this restaurant always serves your favorite turkey day foods. They’ll be open during regular hours on Thanksgiving, though, so fill your tray and your heart with happiness. Turkey just tastes better during this November holiday.
