Want to enjoy a delicious Christmas dinner while skipping all the prep and cleanup? I'm not a cook, but I know cooks... and from the outside looking in... looks like it can be a lot of work and takes up too much time for me. If you agree, take no shame in opting to eat out on Christmas Day! RetailMeNot went ahead and rounded up a list of the best restaurants open on Christmas Day--some of these restaurants are even offering special promotions and special menus to keep you feeling the Christmas spirit.

Below is a list of restaurants open Christmas Day 2019:

Start a new holiday tradition of devouring plates of flavor-packed buffalo wings! The wild restaurant will be open on Christmas Day this year, but hours may vary by location. So be sure to check with your local restaurant first. Enjoy!

Celebrate Christmas with Cracker Barrel’s heat-and-serve meals. You can order online and pick up a day or two before Christmas Day. NOTE: Cracker Barrel isn’t open on Christmas Day; the restaurant recommends ordering at least 24 hours in advance of planned pickup. And meal pickup is available 12/21–12/24 (until 1 p.m.). Plus, holiday meals come complete with ham, delicious sides and your choice of pie. Yummy!

Want breakfast for Christmas dinner this year? Go crazy with some pumpkin spice pancakes! Denny’s want you to enjoy a stress-free meal with family and friends this holiday season. Choose from multiple special options, such as their turkey and dressing dinner pack, cinnamon roll pancake breakfast and pumpkin or pecan pies.

Let early morning pancakes give you the energy to get through the day! Luckily, it’s easy to grab your fix before heading over to Grandma’s house because IHOP restaurants are open Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. But hours may vary by restaurant location, so check with your local store first.

Stay caffeinated on Christmas Day with a latte or Americano from your favorite coffee chain: Starbucks! The popular restaurant will be open all day long. To make it even better, Starbucks will likely have some sort of sale during the holidays, whether it’s BOGO drinks or limited-edition Frappuccinos. Java good time!

Not surprising from a restaurant that’s known for never closing, Waffle House will be open 24/7 on Christmas Day. So stop by anytime you like for your breakfast-food fix. Don’t forget to pour on lots of syrup!
