Phoenix Thanksgiving Deals: from Dining in to Taking it all Home
The holiday season has arrived and the big meals are lining up. I have a big-ish family, in that it’s all a little fragmented so when it comes time for family meals, I have at least two. At least.
So this year, if you find yourself with an array of plans or people that need to be entertained, we have a variety of options for you. Whether you are looking for a brunch, a dinner out or a place to pick up a complete (or a la carte) meal to take home, there are a number of Valley locations that have exactly what you are looking for.
Looking for Scottsdale locations? Check this out!
Bobby-Q Great Steaks & Real BBQ
8501 N 27th Ave., Phoenix
Thanksgiving Dinner to Go
Now through 11/26/2014
Hand-rubbed with a custom blend of spices and then roasted, slow and low over almond and mesquite wood, Bobby Q’s turkeys are incredibly moist and flavorful. Each 12-15 pound turkey (precooked weight), serves 2-4 people. It can be purchased a la carte for $45 or packed with a quart of mashed potatoes, a quart of fire-roasted corn, a pint of gravy and eight versions of cornbread for $65! Also available by special order only will be Smoked Walnut Stuffing and Smoked Turkey Gravy (stuffing and gravy only available on Wednesday, November 26). Turkey orders need to be placed a minimum of 72 hours in advance of the pick-up date and re-heating instructions are provided. Keep in mind that the turkey is completely cooked, and only needs to be warmed! However, since the turkey is smoked, it will have a distinctive pink smoke ring when carved. One taste of Bobby Q’s smoked turkeys and you’ll gobble “Thank Q for smoking.” A limited amount of turkeys will be available for only a short period of time.
Make sure to call in advance to order yours today.
