If you’re looking to avoid Thanksgiving cooking, hosting guests and the cleaning and entertaining that comes with it, you’ve found the right page… and the right city. Overland Park has several options open on Thanksgiving that offer cuisine options for everyone (even if the traditional turkey dinner isn’t for you).

Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ

This fun dining experience is a great option for a unique Thanksgiving meal. Each table comes with a personal grill and you become the chef (don’t worry, their staff will guide you). Check them out for lunch or an early dinner because they plan to close around 6 pm on Thanksgiving.

YaYa’s European Bistro

Let’s be honest, Thanksgiving is all about the food and what’s better than an all-you-can-eat full Thanksgiving buffet. They will be open from 10 am to 4 pm with all the fixings including smoked salmon, prime rib, shrimp cocktail and more. Make sure to get your reservations for this Thanksgiving feast.


ABC Cafe

Check out ABC Cafe for their familiar and authentic Chinese dishes. Order for yourself or get dishes to share for a family style meal.  Their classic ABC chicken is a favorite but don’t skip on the egg custard and coconut buns.

Joy Wok

Thanksgiving, Christmas, New year… Joy Wok is open.  You can order online to eat in the comfort of your own home or dine in for the full experience of the all-you-can-eat super buffet. They also offer sushi and hibachi.


You know it, you love it. Garozzos is a Kansas City classic with a location right in Overland Park.  Fettuccine and spaghetti sound like a pretty good Thanksgiving meal to us but they will have a full Thanksgiving meal for those that want the staples.


BrewTop OP

Want a casual bar and grill atmosphere where you can grab a drink and watch the game? BrewTop in South Overland Park will be open Thanksgiving Day to help you out.


If you’re looking for more modern Italian, Maggiano’s in South Overland Park is the spot for you on Thanksgiving. Order on their app or dine in for their “Mom’s Lasagna” or their famous rigatoni. They will also have a Thanksgiving meal and reservations are required.


Maloney’s Sports Bar

Put off the cleaning one more day and enjoy Thanksgiving evening at Maloney’s in downtown Overland Park. They will be open from 5 pm to 2 am so head over to this sports bar for a drink and take advantage of the long weekend.  P.S. This is also a great spot to hit up on your way home from the Kansas City Plaza Lights Ceremony.


Maloneys Food


Let Houlihan’s cook for you but don’t expect their typical menu. They create an alternative Thanksgiving Day menu that has all of your favorites but the best part… you don’t have to make it!
