Picking up a hot turkey on the Westside
We are having our thanksgiving luncheon here at work on 11/20 and in the past have been able to pick up a turkey dinner that is hot when we pick it up & ready to serve from Koo-Koo-roo. But they aren't doing it this year & most of the groceries have turkey dinners but they must be heated up which is not something we want to have to do.
Office is in Gardena but boss lives in Brentwood so anywhere on this side of town would be appreciated....
Dinah's restaurant on Sepulveda near Culver City (off the 405) makes a fried whole turkey (~$50). My husband tasted it at work and thought it was great -- moist, not dried out. (Dinah's has the big chicken bucket sign.)

If none of the grocers -- Ralph's, Pavilions/Von's, Bristol Farms, Gelson's -- can do a hot pick-up meal a couple days before Thanksgiving -- try The Main Course on Pico in Rancho Park. They specialize in turkey dinners for take-out all year round. You might also consider Honeybaked Ham -- they do a turkey breast with that crackling glaze that is excellent, and they offer complete meals as well. (Coupon insert in Sunday LA Times.) Another option -- Boston Market.
