Any suggestions for good yeast rolls for Thanksgiving?

I've bought rolls from Upper Crust the last few years and they are more dense than I'd like. Who sells good light/fluffy dinner rolls?

    Skip the upscale bakery and buy Sister Schubert's parker house rolls from the frozen section of the grocery store. You can get them at HEB, Central Market and Randall's for sure. I can make good parker house rolls, but haven't bothered much since I found Sister Schubert's.

        Second that recommendation. Load up on her cinnamon rolls as well.

          I bought and tried Sister's rolls for Thanksgiving. They were really good right out of the oven but once they cooled, they were pretty hard and kind of greasy.

          I'm still on the hunt to find good yeast rolls made locally. Thanks!

        I'm reviving this thread because I've been assigned to bring rolls to a office pot luck Thanksgiving meal. We don't have a kitchen at the office, so the rolls will have to be eaten at room temperature. The Sister Schuberts mentioned last year don't sound like they'd hold up too well once cooled. Any other suggestions for good pre-made yeast rolls?

            Rhodes also makes good ones as well. Also in the frozen section.
