AUSTIN (KXAN) — Picture this: You wake up at 4 a.m. to start cooking your famous annual turkey so it’s ready in time for your mom’s 1 p.m. Thanksgiving dinner. You wake up from an unregulated mid-afternoon nap to the sound of the Bears at Lions game and something burning.

You did it, you burnt your bird. But you don’t need to show up empty-handed.

Yelp put together a list of “Best Places for Thanksgiving Food in Texas” and several Austin restaurants made the list.
