Eight Places to Get Takeout for Turkey Day

View as Map

Let's face it: not all of us can make a good pumpkin pie from scratch or cook a tender bird. For those who are kitchen-challenged or just plain lazy, there are a number of DC area restaurants and stores ready to take your order. For the procrastinators out there, get moving. Many stores are still taking orders this week, but kitchens have specific deadlines on orders (many are this week). And if you fake it, just remember: dispose of all the takeout containers well before the guests arrive.
