The Big List: Restaurants, Diners and Fast Food Open, or Closed on Thanksgiving Day 2022

Restaurants, Diners and Fast Food Open Thanksgiving | I-80 Exit Guide

Not all of us will be home for Thanksgiving, or comfortably seated with friends and family for a Thanksgiving day feast… some of us will be on the road.

Travelers looking for a holiday meal can find it a little difficult. You’re tired and hungry so you jump of an exit only to find that every restaurant is closed.

An increasing number of chain restaurants are choosing to remain open during the holidays, or at least opening for limited hours to meet customer demand.

Here’s out list of most chain restaurants that are open, or closed for business on Thanksgiving Day 2022. Local holiday hours may vary by location so call ahead and confirm opening and closing hours. (This listing will be updated as additional information becomes available.)

(Restaurants located at Interstate Service Plazas and Welcome Centers may be required to stay open.)
