Thanksgiving dinner/lunch for 8

We will be visiting DC during the week of Thanksgiving and staying near Dupont Circle. We would like to have Thanksgiving dinner/lunch somewhere not too far afield and without breaking the bank-not budget but a decent value. I'm looking for good food but not necessarily gourmet. There will be 3 children with us, ages 9-13. They are well behaved but a fairly family friendly restaurant would be best.

Your suggestions will be appreciated.

  1. Hill Country BBQ is doing a thanksgiving buffet--it's $35 pp for adults but probably less for kids. It's not going too fancy, but the food there has gotten pretty good reviews. It would be a short taxi ride or just a few stops on the metro (take the red line to Gallery Place and walk a few blocks south from the Arena exit) from Dupont.

    Carmine's is just across the street from Hill Country and did Thanksgiving last year--might be another option to check out if you prefer Italian-American to Southern food. When looking for their info, I found a couple years old but might be a good starting point.
