Feeling Lazy? These are the 10 Best Places to Order Christmas Dinner

Christmas is right around the corner, and with the way this year has gone, you might be thinking about switching things up for Christmas day dinner, especially if it’ll just be your household. Maybe you want to order Christmas dinner for pickup or delivery this year. Or, maybe you want to order all of the supplies and prepare dinner your way. No matter what, you’ve got options. These are the 10 best places to order Christmas dinner in 2020.

Omaha Steaks

This year, order up a few of your favorite cuts of beef from Omaha Steaks or try its Butcher’s Classic Holiday Collection, which comes with filet mignon, filet mignon burgers, oven-roasted chicken breast, chicken fried steak, kielbasa sausage, beef meatballs, potatoes au gratin, caramel apple tartlets and signature seasoning. It’s everything you need (and more) to have a great Christmas dinner at home.

Fulton Fish Market

Fulton Fish Market has been serving up fresh seafood to customers in The Bronx since 1882, but did you know you can have fresh seafood shipped directly to your door from the famous market? Choose from Christmas favorites like crab legs, scallops or even a Seafood Lover’s Box.

Your favorite local restaurant

The restaurant industry is having a tough time this year, so ordering a full meal from your favorite spot is a great way to ensure it’ll be around for a long time to come. Rakuten Dining has more than 10,000 restaurants to choose from in the App, so chances are, your local eatery is listed. You’ll earn 5% Cash Back on every order.

Blue Apron

If you’re into preparing meals at home but don’t have the time to grocery shop or just want to try something new this Christmas, give Blue Apron a look. The popular meal-in-a-box service will send you everything you need to make a complete meal for up to four people. Just pick your meals from the current offerings and they’ll take care of Christmas dinner delivery.

Get Maine Lobster

Few things beat wild-caught Maine lobster, especially when it’s sent straight from the source. Get Maine Lobster does just that in the form of tails, whole lobsters, lobster rolls and more. There’s even a Holiday Party Pack that looks especially good for Christmas dinner or appetizers.

Chicago Steak Company

From USDA Prime Wet Aged steaks to tomahawk pork chops and everything in between, Chicago Steak Company makes it easier to put a whole holiday dinner together easily. I’m eyeing the Surf & Turf, which is perfect for a family of four. You can even get desserts and sides if you want to get all your shopping at one stop.



Breakfast for Christmas dinner? Why not? It is 2020 after all. You can get all your favorite breakfast fare at IHOP, including the new Holiday Family Feast, plus classic dinners available if you’re wanting to mix and match. Or, maybe order a couple different dishes to pass around and breakfast items for the day after Christmas.

Boston Market

I covered Boston Market in a recent post about restaurants open on Thanksgiving day, and Boston Market was offering a complete Thanksgiving meal to go. The chain will be offering similar options for complete Christmas dinners to go this year. You’ll need to check your local store’s hours, but most locations should be open on Christmas Day.

Buca di Beppo

Buca di Beppo offered a complete Thanksgiving meal this year in its family-style format, and it’ll do the same for Christmas day. Check out the Holiday Party and Catering menu, with which you can get a free half tray of Mini Cannoli with any $100 or more catering order. Most locations are open on the 25th; however, you should check with your local restaurant to be sure, especially with different state regulations.

Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar

Fleming’s is open on Christmas Eve for dinner service (where available), but you can order curbside or takeout delivery and serve it up on Christmas Day instead. Your options include a three-course Family menu To-Go or Large Party Menu, available for pickup starting at 12 PM on Christmas Eve, or Holidays with Hall, a four-course Hall Virtual Wine Dinner Experience, which includes dinner for two and two bottles of wine to pair with your at-home virtual meal. Call ahead to order.
