These popular Stockton, California eateries are pulling out all the stops to create amazing meals that you can take home for a delicious Thanksgiving dinner.
If one thing is certain, it's that this year has changed the way we do pretty much everything. So if everything is already turned on its head, why not change the way you do Thanksgiving dinner while also helping a local restaurant stay in business? It's a win-win.
Just because everything is distanced doesn't mean you can't see friends and family. Imagine if everyone in your extended family ordered the same takeout meal and then ate together virtually over Zoom or another video option.

Of course, you have other options. If you don't want to cook but aren't in the mood for a Thanksgiving-style meal, we have more than 145 restaurants on DineStockton.com that do take out, so your choices are pretty much endless.
