Ultra-Casual, No-Reservations on Thanksgiving?

Any ideas? Yes, I'm aware of chains.
I'll be out strafing the streets on my motorcycle (they're almost empty on Thanksgiving!) and will get hungry at some point. I don't need traditional Thanksgiving, but I do want something good to eat.
Think downtown LA and radiate northwest, west and southwest from there, all the way to the ocean.
At the Pantry I think it could get busy if it's near the lunch or dinner hours, otherwise I don't think it's a long wait if your flying solo. I actually enjoy sitting at the counter at there or there's that long table they seat mixed groups at. Maybe 30 years ago I went by myself for Thanksgiving there and it was a good meal.
Not sure about Canter's. I happened to be at Canter's the other night and a lady came out of the dining room side (next to their bar) and said they were having Thanksgiving dinner all day there. In all the years I've gone there I never sat on the dining room side.
Don't know if you're into Chinese food, but everything in Chinatown and the Chinese restaurants in the San Gabriel Valley will all be open.

Thanks for the suggestion. Went there today and the turkey dinner was great. Wasn't too crowded. $9.99 for the dinner w/ mashed potatoes, stuffing, veggies etc.
Everybody was having a good time and the service was friendly. If you were looking for a place to go today, this is a great choice. And I almost went to Campanile....
