McGonigle’s Market

McGonigle's is great because they have options. You might have family bringing different sides and desserts, so you just need to get a turkey. You can either buy it and cook it yourself, or they can cook and slice it for you. All you have to do is pick it up and re-heat on the day. They also offer an entire Thanksgiving dinner with all of the sides for a hassle-free meal. You can pre-order it all online and pick it up between Nov. 25 and 27.

If you don't mind putting in a little more work to cook your own turkey, the Broadway Butcher Shop is also a great choice to order from. Their turkeys are $3.99 per pound, and they sell a brining kit for $5.

Hereford House

Maybe the traditional turkey isn't your family's favorite. Go with a classic Kansas City barbecue meal instead! Hereford House offers barbecue pork ribs and chicken as the entree with mac 'n' cheese, barbecue beans and all of your other favorite fixings on the side. You can select which items you want from the group order menu, but if you go for the whole meal, it serves up to 12 people. They only require 24 hours notice for regular group carry-out packages, but we recommend calling sooner as they'll be extra busy for the holiday.

Zarda Bar-B-Q

Combine the traditional turkey with your craving for KC hickory smoke, and you get Zarda's hickory-smoked apple harvest turkey dinner. For $125, the whole meal comes with a 14-16-pound turkey, cornbread stuffing, a cheesy potato bake, green beans with bacon and onions, dinner rolls and a bottle of the special Zarda Apple Harvest Bar-B-Q Sauce that you'll want to use again and again—if you have any leftovers! They are receiving orders until Tuesday, Nov. 19, and there are only 50 meals available at each location, so get your order in fast! Pick-up is on Wednesday, Nov. 27 by 8 p.m.
