Thanksgiving is just around the corner and, let's face it, the holidays are stressful as people are preparing for family and friends to come over to throw down some turkey and dressing. Maybe this year, you're just not really up to having to cook and clean, then clean again after everybody leaves. So, instead, maybe you want to skip all of the stress and let somebody else cook for you. Never fear, there are restaurants in Abilene serving Thanksgiving dinner.

    Golden Corral

    Golden Corral is one of my favorite places to throw down mass quantities of grub. They have just about everything in the world on their buffet. So, it makes sense that they'll be serving Thanksgiving dinner. Golden Corral will be open from 10a.m. to 8p.m. on Thanksgiving Day and, in addition to their normal food, will be serving up all of your traditional favorites like turkey, ham, dressing and all of the fixins plus they will be serving their regular food as well. The buffet will cost around $12.99, plus $1.99 for your drink. Golden Corral is located at 4101 S. Danville Dr.
