You know, life isn’t a Norman Rockwell painting. 

Sometimes insurmountable obstacles appear and sometimes you just want to do things a little differently. Either way, we’re all for celebrating Thanksgiving however you want, and if that includes pizza, even better. Pass the parmesan.

Here are some of our favorite restaurants that will be open on Thanksgiving day.


Capital Bar and Grill

Open 11 a.m.-9 p.m.

Ok, let’s start this list off right. This menu includes fried turkey breast with savory andouille bread pudding, sorghum-glazed bacon-wrapped green beans, cranberry-orange compote and we have to stop there because we’re drooling on our keyboards. 


YaYa’s Euro Bistro

Open 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

Open doors, smiling faces and a Thanksgiving Day buffet that will rival your own. Load up on turkey, ham, cornbread, pumpkin pie and lots more. 

Call for reservations: (501) 821-1144


Mimi’s Cafe 

Open 10 a.m.-8 p.m.

Oh, Mimi. Do you mind if we call you Mimi? Keep the turkey, sides and desserts coming and we’ll call you whatever you want.

Call for reservations: (501) 221-3883


The Pizzeria at Terry’s:

 Open 6-11 p.m.

There’s a reason this place is one of your favorites. Stop in for great pizza and choose from some of their seasonal drinks, like the unreal Pecan Pie Martini or the Flaming Candy Cane.


Arthur’s Prime Steakhouse

Open 10:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

Arthur’s is the kind of place you save for special occasions and Thanksgiving in one of them. You can expect the full holiday spread, including their regular top notch steak and seafood specials.

Call for reservations: (501) 821-1838


Flying Saucer

Open 5 p.m.-1 a.m.

You know what you need before you face Black Friday? You need a little liquid courage and the Saucer has you covered. Add that to their already fantastic menu and it’s like a Thanksgiving miracle.
