Restaurants open on Thanksgiving Day

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Spending the holidays with family and friends is what most people prefer to do, that is certain. However, we know it’s not always possible, due to illness, travel, work, or other circumstances. If that’s the case for you, here are a few places that may be open on Thanksgiving Day 2018. As always, we recommend calling ahead to make sure chains in your neighborhood are participating with their company’s policy on opening for the day, and whether hours will be shortened.

Applebee’s - known for its combo deals (such as two entrees and an appetizer for $20). So Thanksgiving can be affordable as well as effortless. Many locations will be closing early, so check hours in advance.

Buffalo Wild Wings -the perfect place to watch the three NFL games that are scheduled for Thursday.
