With the company’s “Dine Out at Ben’s” option, patrons can completely relax and let Ben’s provide the ultimate “holiday without the headache” experience. On Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22, seatings are available for 1, 2:30, and 5 p.m. in all locations (7:15 p.m. seating is available at Woodbury, Carle Place, Greenvale, Bayside, and Boca Raton). Thanksgiving Day patrons will be treated to Ben’s delicious “Roast Turkey Dinner,” a prix fixe ($26.99) meal complete with stuffing and gravy and a choice of two sides, as well as bottomless soft drinks and a choice of homemade soup. A prix fixe ($9.99) “Children’s Turkey Feast,” which includes turkey, stuffing, a choice of two sides, dessert and fountain beverage, is available for children ages 12 and under. Large parties are welcome, though reservations are encouraged to guarantee seating. To ensure there is a little something for everyone, some locations will also be showing the football games, and drinks and desserts can be purchased at an additional cost.

For those hoping to host the party but prefer not to cook, there is also the “Ben’s Thanksgiving Feast” catering option (for a price of $249.90) which includes one whole roasted turkey (15-pound average), Ben’s homemade stuffing and gravy, and a choice of two select sides. All feasts also include one quart each of cranberry-pineapple compote and fresh-cut cole slaw, along with an assorted relish tray.

As a bonus, all Ben’s Friends Rewards members who order a catered feast ordered by Monday, November 19 will receive two bonus BUY-1-GET-1-FREE meal coupons (up to $50 value).

“Our guests are our family and there’s no other way we’d spend the holidays than by accommodating our guests for whom we are thankful,” says Ben’s Owner and Founder, Ronnie Dragoon. “We want them to be able to focus on spending time with their loved ones, rather than how much longer the turkey should be kept in the oven.”

For those simply looking to complement their Thanksgiving Feast, whether it’s all from Ben’s or primarily crafted at home — or are hoping to bring a dish as a guest — Ben’s also offers a variety of appetizers, sides, and desserts. Phone-in orders are welcome and Ben’s takeout counter is open all day on Thanksgiving for any last-minute needs, be it a quart of gravy or an extra tray of stuffing, among other items.
