Charlotte Thanksgiving takeout?

southerngurl Nov 20, 2007 10:04 AM

As much as I love to cook, it's just not happening for my family on Thursday. Any recommendations for good takeout open on Thanksgiving? The closer to Ballantyne the better. Thanks in advance!

    Not to close to Ballantyne, but Mert Soul Food does a take-out fried turkey dinner that's supposed to be really good. And seriously, if you really, really don't want to cook, I've heard otherwise credible foodies talk about Bojangles. I have a friend who is a vegetarian and can't handle a raw turkey (I barely can). She gets them for her folks.

        I think Bojangles is switching this year to oven roasted turkeys. I have heard their fried turkeys were excellent
