Best Places for Truckers to Get Thanksgiving Dinner

Are you one of the many truck drivers who will be on the road this Thanksgiving making a pick up or delivery instead of sitting down for a turkey dinner with your family? This list of places to get Thanksgiving dinner is for you.

With the giving holiday season quickly approaching, it’s no secret that this is a busy time of year for carriers. In fact, with the limited capacity the transportation industry is currently experiencing, right now is a good time for truckers to make money.
If you’re going to be one of many truck drivers braving snow, ice, and/or traffic this Thanksgiving and would still like to have a turkey dinner, check out this list of restaurants and truck stops open on Thursday, Nov. 22. Stop in and enjoy a meal with an extended family.

If dining out isn’t for you, join Meals for 18 Wheels on Facebook. This awesome volunteer squad focuses on bringing meals to drivers who are on the road and gets bigger every year. Drivers fill out a form if they want to be included in meal delivery. In addition, this incredible community helps truckers in emergency situations. Volunteer or let them know you’ll be driving!
