Oven Roasted Turkey Special ($19.99)

Thanksgiving is only four days away, but don’t worry about getting caught with your (turkey) pants down. If you forgot to make dinner plans, Big City Diner can save your holiday with a magnificent Thanksgiving Big Meal To Go.

For only $99.99, Big City provides a Thanksgiving dinner with delectable trimmings, some of which are distinctively local. The package begins with a Fresh Roasted Half-Turkey, with a cooked weight of 5-6 pounds. (Think you’ll need more turkey? Get the entire bird meal for a total of $144.99.)

Next, your party will enjoy 1 1/2 pounds of Portuguese Sausage Stuffing, 2 pounds of Big City’s famous Garlic Smashed Potatoes, and 2 pounds of Homemade Giblet Gravy to top it all off. A pound and a half of Baked Cane Sugar Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes, plus Sweet Roasted Corn and Cranberry Maui Pineapple Relish are perfect accompaniments for this savory meal. And, for an ono Thanksgiving dessert: eight pieces of Grandma’s Macadamia Nut Pumpkin Crunch.

Big City Diner can help with your Thanksgiving feast.
