Craving Chipotle After Thanksgiving Dinner?

I mean, nothing sounds better than a giant burrito for dinner after a Thanksgiving Day feast.

Nothing screams Thanksgiving like a giant 2-pound burrito, am I right? I kid, I kid. Whether you’ve decided to skip turkey day this year, or find yourself hungry again in the evening after your Thanksgiving Day feast, you might be craving a classic Chipotle burrito. Friends, I’m sorry to say that if you’re hoping that Chipotle is open on Thanksgiving, you will be sorely disappointed. Chipotle is closed on Thanksgiving, according to

But wait! Even if you can’t get Chipotle burritos on Thanksgiving Day, you can still get some sort of Mexican food on this holiday of thanks. According to, Del Taco is open on Thanksgiving, as well as Qdoba.

Places that may give you more of a traditional Thanksgiving meal vibe that are open include Cracker Barrel, Boston Market, Marie Callender’s, and Bob Evans, where for only $7.99 you can have a turkey, all the trimmings, and desserts. They even have a Thanksgiving breakfast.

And doesn’t a nice coffee sound delicious after a good meal, whether that be Thanksgiving dinner or burritos? Dunkin’ and Starbucks have you covered for all your major holidays, including Thanksgiving. Just be sure to tip your barista like a champ, OK?

No matter where you grab dinner on Thanksgiving Day, I hope you feel grateful to be there.
