1. Bob Evans
Bob Evans is open until 8 PM on Thanksgiving Day, which gives you the option to get dinner to go or eat there and save on the mess, too. Their entire Thanksgiving menu is affordable and even has meals just for the kids.

Whether you’re feeding a small family of 4 or going big with 12 people, Boston Market not only delivers different packages to make your holiday dinner perfect, but they also give you the option of roasted turkey or ham.
Whichever meal you choose, it will come frozen, so make sure to give yourself enough time for thawing and about 2 hours for heating it up before enjoying it.

We sure love Costco and even more now that we know you can score an entire Schwan’s Thanksgiving Meal for 8! And to top it off, they’ve already cooked it all for you so upon arrival, all you have to do is thaw it out. It’s like Thanksgiving Day magic!
Many reviewers even stated that after feeding 6 adults there were plenty of leftovers, so make sure to have all your guests come hungry this year! Make sure to order ahead, because their Thanksgiving Meal takes about 3-5 business days to be delivered and doesn’t ship over weekends.
Oh, and did I mention it’s only $89.99?! 😱

Last year, they were offering up this 40-ounce Turkey and Stuffing en Croute for just $12.99. This dish featured a turkey tenderloin & sweet cornbread stuffing, hand-rolled into flaky, buttery puff pastry with a sprinkling of herbs on top and it even came with turkey gravy and cranberry sauce!
I’m also patiently waiting for them to launch their large Trays of Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Pecans for just $4.99! Oh, and did I mention that it only takes 4 minutes to heat up?! Oh, I love you Trader Joe’s!
8. Whole Foods Market

Their dinners can feed anywhere from 2 up to 12 people. You can spend as little at $40 for just you and your honey or feed the whole family an Organic Roast Turkey dinner for about $170.
