Are restaurants open on Thanksgiving? McDonald’s, Starbucks, Taco Bell


People tend to celebrate Thanksgiving, which will be November 24 in 2022, with a big party surrounded by friends, family and loved ones, and many Americans will wonder which restaurants are open on the national holiday.

While many federal offices and public institutions are closed on this day, most restaurants are privately owned or franchised, meaning they can choose whether to keep their doors open.
