Does the thought of preparing a turkey and all of the side dishes send you into a panic?

This year, why not ditch the kitchen, and treat yourself (and your family) to a Thanksgiving dinner from 916 Riverside?

Jake Burgett has been running the restaurant for the past eight years – but he has been around the food industry for much his life. The space was previously home to Castaways Riverside, which his father founded in 1994 (Burgett often helped out around the restaurant).

The Thanksgiving dinners have been around for as long as 916 Riverside. Burgett said they have grown every year, and some of his customers purchase one for those in need.

Each meal feeds six to eight people, and includes: a 12-14 pound turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, dinner rolls, a tossed salad, and an apple or pumpkin pie. And no preparation is needed at home – Burgett said everything is hot and ready to put on your table. Reservations via phone are required, and must be received by the Sunday before Thanksgiving. 916 Riverside will also offer a buffet and a family style dinner (minimum of four people) for those wishing to dine at the restaurant instead.

It’s one thing off your plate this holiday season.
