Featured: Thanksgiving at 4J's Family Restaurant

Thanksgiving dinner is a big production in anyone's kitchen, but let's face it: Sometimes, eating out is just a better idea – no shopping, no leftovers, no mess. This year, head to 4J's Family Restaurant, which is only a couple of miles south of Palestine on Hwy. 287 toward Elkhart, where they'll have a full menu of meats, side dishes, and desserts for $14.99 per person, and kids eat for half-price. Call 903-948-8849 for information.
