Thanksgiving Dinner Options in Austin?

matteo1973 | Nov 4, 2012 09:48 AM

I'm going to be in Austin for work the week of Thanksgiving this year. My company has graciously offered to fly me home the day before Thanksgiving (despite the airfares being outrageous), but I'd really rather not deal with the long security lines, packed planes, etc... Instead, I've decided to spend the holiday in Austin and fly home the day after, when airports are normally pretty quiet.

Will plan to spend my day relaxing, and maybe taking in a couple of movies (I'm assuming that most of the Austin movie theaters will be open). But I'd also like to have a nice Thanksgiving dinner, either at a dine-in establishment or something that I can take to go (either from a restaurant or if there are any local markets that have really great pre-cooked dinners that I can just warm up).

Does anyone have any recommendations? I'll be located in NW Austin, but I'm not at all averse to driving downtown or south of the city.
