San Diego's TOP 5 Restaurants Open on Thanksgiving Day 2015

Thanksgiving is all about traditions, Thanking anyone or everyone who made a difference in our lives, and a way to say thank you to all the blessings we have received. We traditionally do all of this by preparing a Thanksgiving meal and invite our family and friends to celebrate with us. One thing is for sure, nothing can compete with a home cooked meal, right?! Some families even have their own recipe handed down from one generation to another.

However, times are changing and so are traditions. I guess what I'm trying to say is that thanksgiving is best spent with family and friends, but it doesn't mean that you always have to cook or do it at home. There are times where we want some changes with the routine that we have and we don't have to cook, wash the dishes or setting up the table, and have a Thanksgiving meal prepared by a chef!

I guess, it doesn't matter where we eat or what we eat on Thanksgiving, what matters is who we spend our time with and how we can make it special for them. With that being said, I decided to list down San Diego's TOP 5 Restaurants Open on Thanksgiving Day 2015.

Again, here is San Diego's TOP 5 Restaurants Open on Thanksgiving Day 2015. Enjoy!
