If you’re looking for some fast food option on Christmas, here’s a list of places that will be open and what places will be closed.
So your dinner went bust, or maybe family members got sick the morning of and had to cancel the festivities. Maybe your Aunt Ida made the ham this year and she made it out of tofu. There are a lot of reasons why you may need to go someplace on Christmas for food. Now you’re left wondering, “well, what’s open?”
And that’s a good question. Oh, you’re waiting for me to tell you? Oh, my bad.
Well according to Thrillist and Dellish, these are the restaurants that may be open nearest to you. Just a reminder, most of these are franchises, meaning they’re owned by smaller groups who operate their restaurants independently of one another.
So it’s possible that not only will they keep different hours depending on where you live but some may also be open whereas others are closed.
Christmas Hours 2022: What fast food restaurants are closed?
- Applebees (call ahead, most will be closed)
- Boston Market
- Buca di Beppo
- Buffalo Wild Wings
- Cracker Barrell
- Del Taco
- Domino’s Pizza
- Panda Express
- Waffle House
What do you do if those fast food places aren’t open?
Most of those chain restaurants are franchises, so the franchise owner of each grouping may decide to be open or close on Christmas depending on a variety of internal factors. So what do you do if you’re one of those people stuck in an area where they’re closed?
Well, most gas stations, complete with a kitchen will be open. So your Speedways and Wawa’s. If that’s not your bag, you can go to your local drugstore, as most CVS’s and Walgreens are going to be open and they offer a selection of frozen foods.
They’ll probably also have some canned foods for sale as well, like your run-of-the-mill soups and such.
