Braums Ice Cream and Dairy Store

Sometimes simple is good. You can’t go wrong with a Braums burger and shake. Sometimes, the biggest crowd-pleaser is the simplest option. Tulsan’s know-how tasty Braums is.  Many times fighting with picking kids is just not worth it anyways. Save yourself the headache and go to your local Braums this Thanksgiving.

This is also a good option for those of you who have to endure cooking that is well, less than desirable. We all have that family member who wants to host, but can’t cook to save their life. Braum’s drive-thru is always there to take away your hunger pains and keep you friendly toward your well-meaning family.

Flemings Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar

Golden Corral

All you can eat buffet is definitely what this holiday season ordered! Golden Corral is an oldie but goodie when it comes to holiday festivities. Golden Corral has been a go-to for events. I think I have been to at least 3 anniversary events, and the food was always amazing!

The best part about them, is they have a type of food for everyone. Having to cook for everyone’s preferences on Thanksgiving can be exhausting and unnecessary. Golden Corral is a great alternative to killing yourself in the kitchen. They will be open normal hours 10:30 am- 8:00 pm.  Golden Corral will also be providing complete Thanksgiving meals to go, so you can eat at home. This is especially beneficial for those with anxieties about being in a group in a public place.
