2014 Top 5 Thanksgiving Restaurants in Atlanta Area

I know it isn't quite yet Halloween in Atlanta, but I want to cover some of the top restaurants to dine at this Thanksgiving. I know we all get a little uneasy when we see the Christmas decorations come out when we haven't even carved our pumpkins yet, and I definitely feel the same. I hope this blog post doesn't give you that same, "Oh, are you serious?" feeling those early-bird decorations give me, but instead provide direction. Use this as your caveat to start your holiday planning a little early and get your excuses in your order when your relatives ask you why you aren't cooking this year.

Don't feel like cooking? Not looking forward to the miles of dishes, pots and pans piling up in your sink? Need a hearty meal before all that Black Friday shopping drains your spirit and wallet? Here are the Top 5 restaurants to dine at in Atlanta this Thanksgiving. HORSERADISH GRILL One of my favorite spots in Atlanta is now open on Thanksgiving!
