Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching. If you’re not into cooking for days, don’t worry, you aren’t alone.
Sometimes you can be the most thankful when you aren’t stuck doing 3 hours worth of dishes. There are great options in Columbus to dine out, and even some that you can take the food home to your own table.
So don’t stress! Here are some fantastic Columbus restaurants that are open on Thanksgiving Day.
