Picture it: Thanksgiving morning with the smell of turkey filling the air. But wait, you don’t remember putting the turkey in the oven, or even preparing it the night before. Don’t panic; you bought your turkey from one of your favorite local restaurants.
So sit back and relax because this Thanksgiving you don’t have to worry about fixing a turkey; we’ve got plenty of places that will fix it for you.
