Thanksgiving Grub Guide 


The holidays are right around the corner! If you’re wondering how to make this year even better, we have a few suggestions!

Spend time with who matters this year and let someone else take care of the rest! Want to miss the crowded grocery store? Skip the prep and clean up? Don’t know how to cook? Want to spend more time with family and less time worrying about dinner? No matter the reason, you’re in luck! Some of Williamson County’s best eateries are offering dine-in and carryout options for Thanksgiving Day! They have options for turkey or ham, traditional sides, desserts, and even complete meals!

Get your eat on without the fuss this year! Kokopelli Restaurant will be offering their Thanksgiving buffet by reservation! Several local chain restaurants (Cracker Barrel, Applebee’s, etc.) will also be open to serve their regular dining menus! If these options appeal to you, we suggest looking online or calling ahead as many restaurants will be observing the holiday!

You can also enjoy a delicious meal in the comfort of your own home! Whether you need a few sides, a turkey, a few pies, or all of the above, the pros will make it happen. Choose any of the listed catering options for a dinner to remember!

Community dinners will be offered in Marion, Herrin, and Carterville. There are limited deliveries for those that are unable to leave their homes.

Happy Thanksgiving from the visitSI team to our wonderful communities!
