Thanksgiving is Thursday and TNT Diner readers are looking to avoid cooking a bird (you know who you are).

From the TNT Diner reader e-mail bag:

What restaurants in the Tacoma area will be offering a special Thanksgiving menu on Thursday? Which ones are most recommended?

I know of just a few restaurants serving Thanksgiving dinners (click the read more button to see the list).

Your mission:

Readers: Tell us where you’ve eaten out for Thanksgiving. Was it any good?

Restaurant owners/chef types: Post your menus, hours and prices for Thanksgiving dinner. Tell us what you’ll be serving.

For those making turkey at home, don’t forget to get recipes and advice from our Thanksgiving page here.
