Every November, families across the country sit down to enjoy a Thanksgiving menu. While the holiday may look a bit different this year, we all look forward to the food, family, and fun. But sometimes things don't go according to plan. What if disaster strikes, the feast falls through, and suddenly you're faced with hungry people? You need to act fast—and where can you go to get a quick, cheap meal that everyone will enjoy? McDonald's, of course! But wait—before everyone jumps in the car and heads to the Golden Arches, you're going to need to know McDonald's Thanksgiving hours. So, is McDonald's even open on Thanksgiving? Well, that's where it gets a little complicated.
"Ninety-five percent of McDonald's restaurants are independently owned and operated, so the holiday business hours will vary by location," a representative for the restaurant has previously told CountryLiving.com. "The best way to determine hours for your local McDonald's is to call ahead of your visit to confirm their hours."
Well, that's pretty good news. All it takes to find out if your local McDonald's is open on Thanksgiving is a quick phone call or Google search. You just might might be able to satisfy your fast food cravings on Thanksgiving, whether it's for a Big Mac or a McFlurry.
Along with McDonald's (possibly) being open, there are actually a handful of other restaurants open on Thanksgiving day you can dine at too. Of course, we all have our fingers crossed that things will go swimmingly on November 26, but it's always good to have at least one backup plan. Because no matter how hard to we try to make the day perfect, sometimes things go awry with the Thanksgiving recipes you have planned. Maybe you accidentally left the roasted turkey in the oven too long, or your family just didn't like the taste of your uncle's bird and they're still hungry. And if your grandma forgot her famous apple pie at home, well, McDonald's Baked Apple Pie is there to curb your Thanksgiving pie cravings.
Of course, possible menu malfunction isn't the only reason to go out to eat on Turkey Day. If you're hosting this year's event, you're going to have to wake up early and stay up late to make sure everything gets done. (All those side dishes and Thanksgiving desserts aren't going to make themselves—although we wish they would!) And with all the cooking and cleaning that needs to be completed, you're definitely going to need some sustenance to get you through the day—even if it's just running to McDonald's for a quick lunch or coffee.
Just remember: No matter what happens on Thanksgiving, you have the option to let someone else make a meal for you—and hopefully that fact will alleviate some of your stress.
