Thanksgiving is less than a week away and with rising COVID-19 cases around the U.S., many people are staying in and celebrating the holiday in their own homes. While some might not feel comfortable eating out or going to the grocery store to pick up items for the dinner, there are a few chain restaurants around the country that are offering to-go dinners, or some that are completely free to pick-up. Here are six spots that are included:


Denny’s is open on Thanksgiving for those that want to dine-in, but it’s also bringing back the Thanksgiving take-out meal, too. Guests can pre-order their meal that comes with carved turkey breast, stuffing, turkey gravy, red-skinned mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce, all served family-style. Guests then have the option to choose between broccoli or sweet petite corn. This meal serves four and is $39.99.

Pick-up to-go orders are from Saturday 11/21 to Thursday 11/26, and orders must be placed 24 hours in advance.


In order to get a completely free Thanksgiving dinner, customers must go through the Ibotta app, not directly through Walmart. The app allows customers to redeem their receipts and the items they purchase for reimbursement. They’ll get nine free products and then receive cashback through Ibotta.

The exact items include Campbells Cream of Mushroom Soup (10.5-ounce can), a 2-liter bottle of Coke, a Butterball Turkey Roast (3-pounds of $9.98 cash back on whole turkeys), a McCormick Gravy Packet (0.87-ounce package), French’s Crispy Onions (2.8-ounce package), Idahoan Mashed Potatoes (8-ounce package), Great Value Stuffing (6-ounce package), Great Value Cranberry Sauce (14-ounce can) and Great Value Frozen Green Beans (12-ounce bag)
