Dine In or Dine Out? Holiday Eating Trends in NEA
To dine out, or not to dine out? It is the question many in Jonesboro asked themselves this holiday weekend. The trend to ditch cooking at home and head to local restaurants for holiday feasts is growing in popularity. Several restaurants offered full-course Thanksgiving feasts, including favorites like turkey, dressing, green-bean casserole, mashed potatoes and more.
Corey's Place in Jonesboro was one of a few restaurants in downtown Jonesboro to keep its doors open on Thanksgiving Day. "We're trying to give moms and grandmas a break."
All-you-can-eat buffets, like Barnhills and Western Sizzlin' offered discounts for families and friends on Thanksgiving Day. Barnhills will offer their 'Family and Friends Giving Feast' for $14.99 for adults, and $13.99 for seniors. Western Sizzlin begins their holiday buffet price at $11.99.
Barnhills will offer their 'Family and Friends Giving Feast' with the same prices for Christmas, and New Years holidays.
