Melinda Sheckells, lifestyle and entertainment expert and editor of OffTheStrip.com, shares recommendations on what to eat and drink this week in Las Vegas.

Thanksgiving means great eating and this year will be no exception with last minute dinner ideas from three valley restaurants—whether you choose to dine in or takeout.

Mama Bird Southern Kitchen in Southern Highlands is offering a take-out Southern Turkey feast for $195 for 10 people or $99 for 6 people. This is a smoked turkey extravaganza with pimento cheese dip, wicked deviled eggs, candied jalapenos, their famous biscuits and Butterscotch cream pumpkin pie. Also stock up on meats like their brisket and additional sides so your Thanksgiving crew gets a taste of it all. Preorder and pick up @mamabirdsk.

And in keeping with the southern theme, if you are having a Zoom Thanksgiving with family and friends and need dinner for one or two try chef Bruce Kalman’s SoulBelly BBQ Thanksgiving available on SecretBurger.com. For $49 per person you get the complete meal. For an appetizer, dive into southern favorite pimento cheese dip with crackers, a slow-smoked turkey, cranberry chutney, mashed potatoes with turkey gravy, green chile and cheddar corn casserole with a slice of classic pumpkin, chocolate pecan or apple from PopNpies for dessert. Plus, Kalman is including a sandwich next-day-leftovers kit with Hawaiian rolls and aioli. Order by Tuesday at midnight and pick up Thurs., Nov. 26, between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m.

Classic Las Vegas steakhouse Golden Steer is doing takeout or dine in for parties of four.
