Dining-out options aren't exactly plentiful on Thanksgiving, but there are definitely places to grab a quick bite. Here are some choices for you if you're on the road and need a pick-me-up on Thursday, or if you're simply opting not to cook, host or deal with all the planning frenzy.

Denny's will be open all day, sticking to its 24-hour schedule, so whether you need something at 4 a.m. or 4 p.m. or a late-night pick-me-up, there you go.

Now you're (not) cooking. Stop at Boston Market for sides, main dishes and sweets and forget about dishes and all the hassle. They're open from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Be advised: It's better to pick up dinner earlier than later.

Craving pasta? Steak? A burger? Ribs? Anything but turkey? (Though they'll have something turkey on the menu, too.) Consider stopping at Ruby Tuesday, open from noon-10 p.m.

Coffee fiends will be grateful that Starbucks is open much of the day, perfect for giving thanks for that Pumpkin Spice or Eggnog latte, or for that jolt of potent brew to get you through all the celebrating.

If coffee is essential to your day — Thanksgiving or otherwise — you'll be grateful to know Caribou is open 7 a.m.-5 p.m., so you can get through the festivities with a cappucino, latte, or holiday concoction, or something sweet, too.
