Thanksgiving can be stressful! The kids are home from school, we’re still adjusting to the early dark nights, and you might even have out of town relatives visiting and adding to the chaos. Sometimes it’s easier to outsource the cooking to somebody else. There are a ton of Long Beach restaurants that offer tasty Thanksgiving dinners to go. Here are some of our favs.
Fuego will be offering both dine-in and to-go options for Thanksgiving. Their to-go dinner includes Cocoa roasted turkey breast, butter Brussel sprouts, whipped Yukon gold potatoes, candied yams, and cranberry orange compote.
Fuego’s Thanksgiving dinner feeds 6 and costs $199. Everything I’ve had at Fuego is next-level gourmet and I’m sure their Thanksgiving family dinner will not disappoint. Must order by 11/21.
If you opt for dine in, you’ll want to make reservations. Fuego is located in a beautiful setting with water views and a gentle ocean breeze. It would make for a gorgeous backdrop for a Thanksgiving dinner.
The Attic has a Thanksgiving dinner with a multitude of sides, so bear with me here. The protein is organic roasted turkey breast and rosemary baked turkey leg rillet with turkey gravy. Sides include: Pommes Puree w/ roasted garlic, country bread stuffing, Brussel sprouts, Japanese sweet potatoes, market lettuces with lemon and parmesan, flaky butter rolls, and fresh cranberry sauce. Either a chocolate pecan pie or pumpkin pie with whipped marscarpone is also included. You can upgrade to a wild strawberry pie for $10.
The Attic’s Thanksgiving dinner feeds 4-6 and costs $250. Must order by 11/22 at 3 pm.
Saint and Second
Saint and Second has both dine-in and to-go options. Their to-go dinner includes turkey, ham, tri tip, sides, and a pumpkin pie. You need to call to pre-order (562) 433-4828. I couldn’t find a price or how many people it feeds on their website.
Their dine-in option includes spice-rubbed “range-grown” turkey, molasses and brown sugar ham, and smoked tri-tip. Sides include andouille, thyme, and brioche stuffing; creme fraiche mashed potatoes, sautéed green beans, maple mashed potatoes, turkey gravy, and classic cranberry and tangerine sauce. A pumpkin pie is also included.
Saint and Second’s dine-in Thanksgiving dinner costs $49/person or $19/person for people under 12.

Or you can create your own. There are way too many options to list, so I’ll give a few highlights. Some protein options are the apple cider and sage sliced turkey breast, chocolate espresso braised beef short rib, and more. Some side options include: roasted garlic mashed potatoes, candied yams with brown sugar and warm spices, brown butter green beans, and more. There are add ons such as brown butter rosemary nuts and creamy olive tapenade, and don’t forget about gravy and dessert!
I did not see an ordering deadline on their website but if you are considering ordering from them, it wouldn’t hurt to call and check to make sure you don’t miss out.
Urban Plates has a few different size options for their Thanksgiving dinners, including a dinner for 1 for $19.95, which is offered for dine-in or to-go. The larger options are to-go only, including a family dinner for 4 with herb roasted turkey breast, stuffing, roasted Brussel sprouts, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry relish, and rustic bread. The family dinners costs $79.
There is a larger Thanksgiving dinner they offer that feeds 6-8 that includes turkey breast, mushroom stuffing, gravy, cranberry relish, artisan bread, and a choice of 2 sides. This option costs $139.
You can also purchase additional sides that feed 3-4 for $14.95, and whole desserts to go. Dessert prices range from $19.95-$48. $48 may sound crazy for a pie or cake, but if you’ve ever had a dessert from Urban Plates, you know that they look and taste as if they came from heaven. Do not underestimate them.
Must order by 11/20.
The Carvery also has several options for Thanksgiving meals to go. You can opt for their signature prime rib with house-made stuffing, sour cream mashed potatoes, French style green bean almondine, and homemade gravy. This option feeds 4-6 and costs $199.
Also feeding 4-6 is the family signature turkey breast and sides for $109. This includes all the sides as the prime rib option, but with slow roasted turkey breast instead of prime rib.
If you have a large family, you can opt for the family whole roasted turkey and sides for $119. This option feeds 15-20 and includes all of the same sides as the other 2 (but more quantity), and the protein is a whole slow-roasted turkey.
You can add on additional sides for between $8-10.
I did not see a deadline for ordering, but again, it’s best to call ahead to be safe.
