Are you transplants to the Treasure Valley like my fiance and I?  Let these restaurants make you feel at home this year! 

With a week to go to Thanksgiving and no invites sent out to our annual Friendsgiving, I'm guessing my fiance doesn't plan to go over the top this year like he did in 2016.  He lives for being in the kitchen on Thanksgiving Day. (Seriously, we ended up with three different types of turkey last year.)

I'm ok with that, because he has a milestone birthday this year and it falls on Thanksgiving Day. We'd probably prefer a lower key holiday this year without having to cook and clean up after 20 people.

Are you looking for the same type of turkey day?  These restaurants are happy to do all the hard work for you!
