Going out to eat on Thanksgiving


MASON CITY, Iowa – If you didn’t feel like cooking a turkey dinner, several restaurants in the area were open.

Butcher’s Steakhouse in Mason City opened its doors for several hours to welcome customers. Owner Laurie Buchanan says people had to have a reservation. They were booked as of last week, so she had to turn some people away today.

Buchanan says she enjoys doing this for people in the community each year.

“The people that come on holidays are very appreciative,” she said. “A lot of people are just thank you, thank you for being open, thank you for taking your time out of your holiday.”

Butcher’s served up Thanksgiving classics like mashed potatoes, turkey and pumpkin pie.
