Dear PoPville,

I’m looking for a recommendation for a good place who does the turkey and fixings for take out on turkey day. We tried Georgia Brown’s last year and it was ok, but I wondered if there were any other recommendations out there. Do the good folks of PoPville have any suggestions?

There are a few recommendations in the forum but I also like the looks of the Hill Country options:

“We’re all about the turkey at HCDC for Thanksgiving. Deadline to place your pre-order for whole pit-smoked turkeys, our traditional sides and homemade desserts is tomorrow. We have full meal packages or order a la carte. Call 202.556.2044 or email [email protected] to order today!”

And don’t forget Three Little Pigs as well.

  • The National Museum of the American Indian’s Mitsitam Cafe offers a take home Thanksgiving meal. (You can pick it up on Wednesday, or on Thursday morning.) You can check out their order form here: http://www.mitsitamcafe.com/content/menus/holiday%20take%20home%202012.pdf

    I did Boston Market a couple years ago and I loved it.

    Try Scratch DC. A little bit of prep is involved, but they deliver.


    • I second scratchDC. We have already ordered our Thanksgiving meal and I am very excited about it.

      • I was just going to suggest Scratch! So good!

    Greek Deli on 19th St. They may already have closed orders for next week, but if not, trust me. It’ll be delicious.

    I love Hill Country’s sides, but their barbecue has a really fake-tasting liquid smoke flavor to it.

  • We certainly will be offering a Thanksgiving meal! The spread includes: Apple Cider & Sage Brined Turkey Breast, Rosemary Stuffing, Creamy Redskin Mashed Potatoes, Roasted Root Veggies in a Ginger Dijon Glaze and Pumpkin Cookies!

    Everything chopped, measured, marinated, ready to roast and delivered to your door Wednesday evening for just $50!

    Our order cut off will be 10pm on Sunday evening so get em in ASAP!

    try Oohhs and Aahhs on U Street. YUM!

  • OP here. Thanks everyone for your recommendations. We’ve decided to go with Whole Foods this year. Hope it tastes as good as it looks!
