Help! Affordable Thanksgiving catering for small family group.

  • 9

Hi - I am bringing my family to Miami (Kendall) to spend Thanksgiving with my 93 year old grandfather. He lives alone & can't do any shopping or cooking and we will not be arriving until noon on Thanksgiving day. I am trying to find someplace affordable who can deliver a traditional Thanksgiving meal to his house on that day. It's for 3 adults and 2 children, doesn't have to be anything fancy, just your traditional turkey, stuffing, bread, green beans, pumpkin pie, etc....

I have a quote from Mr Chef's for $150, trying to find something maybe a little cheaper if I can. Appreciate any suggestions!

      I live N of Miami so can't help but you might be able to find a deli or a restaurant locally who are making a T-giving lunch where you can go and collect it for less than $150

      try this, never been but I googled it for you

        I highly recommend Joanna's marketplace. They deliver and are in the Kendall area. Here's a link to their website. http://www.joannasmarketplace.com/

    2. I have ordered Thanksgiving dinner from Roasters and Toasters which is in East Kendall and it is always very good. http://roastersntoasters.com/Catering...

        You can't go wrong with either Joanna's or Roaster and Toasters.

      2. Publix will cater your Thanksgiving starting at $39.95. Only thing is you might have to arrange for someone to pick it up - I don't think they deliver.

        1. Whole foods has a takeout section-
          you will have to pickup

          You might also want to consider serving roast chicken or another non-traditional meal

          I am sure your grandfather will appreciate the thought of spending Thanksgiving with the 5 family members

          1. IMHO, $150.00 for delivery on Thankgiving day is a pretty good price. Otherwise, I'd contact a grocery store in the area and ask about pick up.

            1. Delaware Chicken in Hollywood has delicious chicken and turkey.
              I think they deliver for the Holidays
