San Francisco Thanksgiving Takeout and Delivery Guide
Thanksgiving is pretty much the best holiday there is since it doesn’t involve anything other than hanging with people you love, watching football, and eating so much yummy food. And you know what makes it even better? When you don’t have to cook any of that yummy food. Whether you’re celebrating Thanksgiving with family or doing a Friendsgiving with friends, these San Francisco restaurants and markets will do all of the cooking for you. And some will even deliver the food right to your door. Slaving away in the kitchen is so 1621.
