Top 10 Thanksgiving Day Dinners in Vegas

It’s Thanksgiving and you’re in Vegas. Maybe you planned a holiday vacation or maybe you’re just passing through. Whatever the occasion, you’re going to need turkey and I’m here to help.

There’s a lot of variety on this list — from an AAA five-diamond restaurant to a sports bar and everything in between. One of my favorite things about dining in Vegas is you can get a complete Thanksgiving meal for $16 and across the casino floor have an entirely different experience with a $160 meal. Whatever your budget, whatever your taste and wherever you are, you can definitely find the right hot dinner on Nov. 24.

From traditional to original, here are my picks for the Top 10 Thanksgiving dinners in Vegas.
