Where’s The Turkey?
by Theresa King

Recipes will return next month.

With the changing season, it can be challenging to figure out who’s open and when for dining out in Moab. But do not despair, most of Moab’s restaurants stay open year-round, but they adjust their hours to meet public demand. Each month“Moab Happenings” endeavors to call around and update the restaurant guide to reflect this seasonal metamorphosis. This month I called around and as a service to those who would like to treat themselves, friends & families to Thanksgiving Dinner without the fuss of cooking and cleaning up after, (as of press time) here’s a run-down of who is serving on this special day.


Buck’s Grill House
Traditional Thanksgiving menu. Reservations highly recommended. Buck’s has been serving dinner on this special day for years and it’s always packed. Serving from 3:30 - 8:00 pm.

Denny’s
Moab’s only 24 hours a day restaurant will be serving a Thanksgiving dinner along with their regular fare.
