Your Thanksgiving dinner options this year:

Okay, Aunt B's, always your best bet, will be open Thanksgiving day from 10:30 to 3:00.


There will be no discounts of any kind.

The reasonable, AYCE holiday prices will be:

Ages 11 and up:$14.99 ($16.04 with tax).

Ages 4 to 10:$5.99 ($6.41 with tax).

Ages 3 and under eat free.

My suggestions: PLEASE take the time to get to the bank and get cash before close of business Wednesday. The line will move a lot faster if the cashier is not tied up processing credit cards. Using nothing larger than a $20.00 would also help. They do not accept checks. Calculating your exact total bill and having exact change ready would be sublime!

Oh, and could you carry on the protracted post-meal chit chat out in the parking lot or back at grandma's house. Folks will be backed up out the door with hungry kids and needing your table.

Oh, and one last thing no, two. Please don't light up right outside the restaurant as you're leaving or standing in line, for that matter. Finally, please don't slather on a gallon of Eau du F. W. Woolworth. I like to be able to smell my food, not your cheap cologne. No, there's one last thing: PLEASE keep the front door closed. The AC cannot keep up if you hold the front door open. Technique: When you get to the door, do not open it until you can clearly see that there is enough room at the end of the line inside the door to open it, get your entire party inside at one time, then close the door behind you. Simple, really.

Please don't forget to tip your waitress generously. 15% would come to $2.40 on an adult meal. Be a sport - go for at least $3.00 per adult meal.

How about at least $1.00 for each kid. The "free" kids can be a real mess to clean up after.

Other Thanksgiving options:

Borrell Creek:

11:30 'til 2:30.

"Plated ham and turkey with dressing and a dessert."

Adult $15.99 Child $7.99

The Mill:

Noon to 5:00

"Complete turkey dinner."

Adult $8.49 Child $3.99

(Info extracted from ads in Friday's T&G. )

As you were! I just phoned The Mill at 5:30 PM on Tuesday, 11/23. After a lot of rings, you get a recording in which a young woman apologizes for the fact that they have closed again and suggests that "for information about the store", you call Linda Cagle at such 'n such a number. Apparently, they've already re-opened and closed in about a week or less!


Open from 6:00 to 4:00 (not sure when they will start serving Thanksgiving dinner.)

"Complete turkey dinner."

Adult $8.49 Child $3.99

Note: Both The Mill and Steffens are owned by Linda Cagle. My guess is that everything will be cooked at Steffens then some of it will be transported over to The Mill.

When I went to ga tech in Atl, awful wafel was the place to go. So many people live in appartments and condos they do not cook. I went one year and it was very nice. Does the wafel house do thanksgiveing here???
