Thanksgiving is just weeks away, and with Dallas having been named Restaurant City of the Year by Bon Appétit magazine, we certainly have a lot to be thankful for.
As one can expect, many restaurants will be offering their own Thanksgiving specials.
While you won’t be hard-pressed to find the signature turkey day fixings, some restaurants will offer items to keep you feeling thankful to live in a unique food city this month.
