T'giving dinner for seniors

Due to some family machinations, my dad and my uncle (both in their 80's) want to go out for T'giving dinner. Any suggestions on a place where they would be comfortable (non-trendy) and that has decent food that's a decent value?

We're in the Glendale/Pasadena area.

  1. Mimi's Cafe in Los Feliz has a wonderful, traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Reservations are a MUST ... and at Thanksgiving there's usually a half hour wait. The food is good, fresh, and the price is right!

    1. Black Angus Steakhouse is open

          1. For the truly decrepit amongst us I'd suggest Tam O'Shanter in Los Feliz or Beckham Grill in Pasadena. Both offer traditional Turkey Day meals with the typical safe & bland sides. Plus they've got decent prime rib roast for those who despise big bird. They could be booked so call ahead.

            Cafe Bizou is also open, but the crowd in Pasadena tends to be younger than the Sherman Oaks location. I'm not sure if the Derby in Arcadia is open, but I've had older coworkers suggest that for a quiet American supper. And you might want to check and see if the Westin in Pasadena is having a Turkey Day buffet.
