Where to pre-order your 2022 Christmas meals in Charlotte

It’s the holidays, there are a million things to do and the last thing you want is to add on one more thing on your to-do list: the Christmas dinner shopping and cooking. We feel you.

Instead, pre-order a takeout meal from a Charlotte-area restaurant. You’ll be making your Christmas a little easier and helping out a local business at the same time. That’s a win-win.

Options include turkeys, beef tenderloin, brisket and more. And unless you want to make an exception for a famous mac and cheese recipe, you can order that — and all the other sides you’re craving, too.

Here are some of the Charlotte-area restaurants offering Christmas pre-orders, and be sure to check back for more as the holiday season continues:
