Thanksgiving might still look a little different this year, but Central Ohio restaurants are offering take-home, pre-order options and day-of feats to fit your preferences.

Watch those order deadlines (soon, very soon!) and get ready to eat ALL the turkey and pie! (But there are two vegan options!)
