Update: Originally, Golden Corral was included in this list. While nationwide, many Golden Corral restaurants were open, the Fort Wayne location was closed. We apologize for the inconvenience. 

With all the hustle and bustle that accompanies the holiday season, you may consider giving your hosts a break from cooking and suggest hitting the town for a nice dinner out. Who knows, you may even start a new family tradition. And don’t worry, I promise you’ll have a better experience than the poor family in A Christmas Story.
