If you have procrastinated on buying a turkey and all the sides to feast on with your loved ones (we’ve been there!), there are quite a few places in the St. Louis area that can be your saving grace this year. Certain restaurants are offering to-go orders, delivery services or even dine-in options. We’ve rounded some up for you to choose from, but if we’ve missed a spot, let us know.

The menu consists of baked mac and cheese, butter salad, collard greens, buttermilk biscuits with pimento cheese and roasted Brussel sprouts. Peach cobbler is also available for those with a sweet tooth. Orders can be placed until November 18 and must be picked up on November 24 between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Order here.
