All in, the chain estimates that it will serve 652,000 pounds of turkey on Thanksgiving Day.

Another Grand Slam for Denny's!

Select regions offer online ordering and delivery — yes, you might not even have to leave your house.

Golden Corral

4610 Garth Road

Baytown, TX 77521

Known for its insanely comprehensive buffet all year round, it's no surprise that this chain goes all out during Thanksgiving.

Kids meals run from $7 to $9, depending upon the child's age.

5001 Garth Rd.

Baytown, TX 77521

Hours: 24 Hours

Turkey might not be the typical go-to order at the International House of Pancakes, but the Roasted Turkey Dinner is classic comfort food on a plate: carved roasted turkey breast topped with turkey gravy and served with a choice of two sides. Bonus: It’s on the 55+ menu, which means seniors age 55 and older get a discount on this meal, which is served year-round, so every day can be Turkey Day.  Head to IHOP before you hit the road to Grandma's house and treat yourself with their seasonal favorite, Pumpkin Spice Pancakes.

Hours: 11:00am - 8:00pm

Baytown, TX 77521

Hours: 6:00am - 6:30pm

Sip on a toasted white chocolate mocha or a chestnut praline chai tea latte or munch on the seasonal candy can whoopie pie and a gingerbread loaf this Thanksgiving Day, because Starbucks is serving holiday goodness from 6am-5:30pm on Garth and 6am-6:30pm at Garth/I-10.

Waffle House

7203 Garth Rd.

Baytown, TX 77521

Hours: 11:00am - 8:00pm

Does this chain ever close? Not unless there's a major storm! Every single Waffle House restaurant is open 24 hours, 365 days a year, but there's actually no turkey being served here on Thanksgiving Day. However, they will be serving up classics from its everyday menu, like Papa Joe's Pork Chops. Most importantly, Waffle House has pecan pie and triple chocolate pie.
