No need to cook a Christmas dinner, here are the restaurants open on Christmas.  

Sometimes on Christmas you just need to grab a bite to eat between holiday events or, you don't want to cook at all. Either way here are some restaurants that will have their doors open this Christmas.

The Crew: Endless cups of coffee and amazing deserts will be open from 8 am to 8 pm on Christmas.

Denny’s: The Americana staple promises to be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including Christmas.

Dunkin’: Some locations will be open Christmas Day, but many will be closing early (generally 1 p.m.). Many locations will also be closing early on Christmas Eve, as well. So call your store to check the hours.

IHOP: Many 24-hour locations will be open on Christmas, but hours vary by location. Check out this year’s seasonal Grinch menu.

Macaroni Grill: Open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Christmas Eve and 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. Christmas Day.

McDonald’s: Hours (and whether they’re open at all) varies widely by franchise, so call ahead. Expect hours to be reduced for locations that are open. Note that locations inside Walmarts will be closed, as Walmart is closed on Christmas.

Starbucks: Many locations stay open for limited hours on Christmas, so you can get your pre-Christmas party buzz. But not all locations will be open, so call ahead. Note that Starbucks locations inside Target will be closed, as Target is closed Christmas Day.

Enjoy Christmas and a great meal! Happy Holidays!
