Thanksgiving is quickly sneaking up on us on Thursday, November 22 and if you’re like me who was totally caught off guard, you may consider one of these family Thanksgiving meals that are ready to go.

If you are not ready for Thanksgiving or may need some help whether it just be sides or a whole turkey that you just want to pick up already cooked and ready to carve and eat, then this handy list is for you. Whatever your Thanksgiving cooking plans entail – these five places can surely help you finalize your holiday meal plans.


Stateline is making it easy this year to host your family dinner with a Smoked Turkey, Stuffing, Gravy, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Corn, Homemade Bread, Honey Butter and Peach Cobbler. This family meal is available for a family of 4-5 for $100 and for a family of 8-10 for $200.

Popeye’s Chicken

Fans of Popeye’s Chicken can order a fully cooked Cajun Style Turkey (while they last). I know a few people who just love Popeye’s Chicken and this may be a game changer since their recipe is infused with Popeye’s Chicken special Cajun spice blend, and then coated with another spicy Cajun seasoning and then its flash fried to seal in the flavor and then slow roasted to perfection. You can then round out your order with all your favorite sides including Mashed Potatoes, Mac and Cheese, Green Beans, Corn and Biscuits. A pre-cooked turkey runs around $39 (plus tax) but prices may vary so check your local Popeye’s Chicken locations for complete pricing details.

Whole Foods

Whole Foods will accommodate for you to pick up a hot, ready to serve turkey or just the turkey breast itself, and will run you from $79.99 to $89.99. You can also select fully prepared turkey meals from their classic roasted turkey and/or an organic turkey meal that includes creamy Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, Traditional Herb Stuffing, Turkey Gravy and Cranberry Orange Sauce. For bigger families you can opt for a family feast which includes everything the Classic Turkey meal has with the addition of a few more side dishes and pumpkin pie. Whole Foods will accommodate holiday meals for all family sizes from a couple to a family of 14 with prices ranging from $69.99 to $449.99.

Cracker Barrel

Cracker Barrel is offering their Heat n’ Serve Holiday Family Meals To-Go. Simply order online and they will have it available in 2 hours or less. Their Thanksgiving Meal Kit comes chilled and ready to heat and serves up to 10 people. The meal kit includes: Two Oven-Roasted Turkey Breasts, Cornbread Dressing, Turkey Gravy, Cranberry Relish, Choice of 3 Country Sides (each serves 10), Sweet Yeast Rolls, Pumpkin Pie (while supplies last) and a Pecan Pie. Cracker Barrel recommends ordering at least 24 hours in advance and will be available for pick up from November 17 – 25, 2018. Prices run from $69.99 – $109.99.


Luby’s is probably the most flexible of these holiday meals because it allows you to build your family feast as you’d like. You can select from a classic roasted turkey, smoked turkey, sliced roast beef or a ham. You can then select all your traditional sides including broccoli casserole, and even candied yams. You can also choose from a variety of pies along with trimmings, cranberry sauce and a selection of gravies. Luby’s can accommodate family meals for couples up to a family of 12 ranging in prices from $69.99 - $159.99.

Happy Thanksgiving!
