Not in the mood to cook this Thanksgiving? Here are some selections of Thanksgiving dinner specials from local grocery stores and restaurants, including Publix, Chicken and the Egg, Magnolia Thomas Restaurant, Ted’s Montana Grill and Cracker Barrel.
This year, why don’t you consider a new Thanksgiving tradition? Save Mom from slaving over a hot stove for days and take her out! The very suggestion may create emphatic “Nos” from some; but on behalf of Moms everywhere, I am suggesting that for just one big holiday give Mom, as well as the rest of the family, an opportunity to be able to eat and enjoy. I’ll bet her level of gratitude would increase greatly and give her more energy to buy Christmas presents on Black Friday. Wink, wink. There are many tasty ways to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner without Mom’s help and still maintain important Southern cuisine traditions. Both Kroger and Publix offer complete family dinners unde $60. Chicken and the Egg, Magnolia Thomas Restaurant, Ted’s Montana …

This Whitlock Avenue restaurant offers delicious food and great service.
I was looking for somewhere to eat in Marietta and thought I had found a really cool place - until I realized they didn't have anything vegetarian on the menu and couldn't do anything to accomodate my dietary restriction. Since I was hungry and it was lunch time, my husband and I decided to try out Chicken and the Egg because, well, it was close. And, it had a really cool name. Let me tell you, it was the best mistake I have ever made. We live in Cartersville, but we've already said we will make the drive to Marietta to eat here again. And again. It was that good. Service: We were greeted by a very friendly hostess who took us right to a table, which I was pleasantly surprised by since it was high noon. Our server was fantastic. She came …
