Thanksgiving dinner takeout in Pasadena

For a number of reasons, we aren't able to cook for Thanksgiving this year. Any place that you would recommend for the turkey and the side dishes in the Pasadena area? I'm willing to go to several different places for different things if need be. There will be about 15 of us.

    1. Bristol Farms is great, but so is Gelson's.

      1. Thanks. I glanced at their menus online. Gelson's seems more basic and possibly more cost efficient, while Bristol Farms has more choices and may be more expensive. Have either of you actually eaten the food off of the Thanksgiving menu? Do you know how the portions run? Thanks again.

        1. re: norton44

          We have used both as both a close to my parents home, mom stopped cooking the turkey 15 years ago or so. We usually get the turkey alone and order sides separately.

        2. Auntie Em's in Eagle Rock. Just a hop/skip from Pasadena, and they're GREAT.
