Are you traveling this Thanksgiving holiday and need to go out for Thanksgiving dinner? Or maybe it’s just you and your husband this year as the kids are off at college and don’t want the hassle of cooking just for two? Or maybe you’re working Thanksgiving day and don’t have time to cook, but would still like to have a special meal?

Well whatever the reason for not cooking this Thanksgiving, consider enjoying a Buca Style Thanksgiving Feast at Buca di Beppo!

Buca di Beppo’s Thanksgiving Feast

If you want to avoid cooking and cleaning up, go online and make Thanksgiving reservations at your local Buca restaurant – the sooner the better! Buca di Beppo locations will be open at 11 am Thanksgiving day and you can make a reservation for as late as 11 pm in case you’re working late or will be traveling. Buca di Beppo restaurants serve large groups as well as small, so you may want to gather coworkers or friends and make it an “orphan” Thanksgiving party!

Their Thanksgiving Feast includes classic meal items with an Italian twist, such as:

Sliced White Meat Turkey or Hickory-Smoked Ham Homestyle Gravy Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes Spicy Italian Sausage Stuffing Green Beans Cranberry Sauce Pumpkin Pie

The small dinner serves 3 and is $53.99 and the large one serves 6 is $98.99. (Note that prices may vary by location.)

Buca’s regular menu is also available on Thanksgiving Day. They also have a gluten free menu, which you can download from their website. It features classic Italian dishes like Chicken or Veal Saltimbocca and Chicken or Veal Marsala. Not exactly traditional Thanksgiving fare, but at least you won’t get a tummy ache (or worse!) after eating.

Take the Thanksgiving feast back to your place or to the office

I’m not a huge fan of chains, but I’ve always loved Buca di Beppo after first dining there over 18 years ago in San Francisco on a business trip. So if I was on vacation, but staying at a place where I could have a sit down meal – like renting a condo or house – I’d certainly take advantage of Buca di Beppo’s Thanksgiving Feast Party Pans and take my food back to my rental. Especially since curbside pick-up is available at most locations!

Taking advantage of Buca’s Thanksgiving Feast To Go means you can save a little money on the extras like drinks for the kids, a bottle of wine, and a couple of nice desserts (since that’s not included) by going to the grocery store the day before. Another nice thing about the half pan, which serves 10, is that you’ll have lots of leftovers for the rest of your vacation, so you can cut down on dining out costs and spend that money on having fun!

Buca’s Thanksgiving Feast Party Pans would also be a terrific option if you were working on Thanksgiving, didn’t have time to cook, but wanted a delicious meal to serve at home with a minimum of fuss. Or bring the feast to the office and celebrate with your coworkers.

All you need to do is make a Thanksgiving Feast To Go reservation – the earlier the better! Thanksgiving Feast To Go includes:

Sliced White Meat Turkey or Hickory-Smoked Ham Homestyle Gravy Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes Spicy Italian Sausage Stuffing Green Beans Cranberry Sauce

The Half Pan Serves 10 and is $159.99. The Full Pan Serves 20 and is $299.99. (Note that prices may vary by location.) You can also order additional food off the regular menu.
