Here’s your guide to everything you need to know about our holiday meals.


Cooked Dinners

If you would like to purchase one of the holiday meals from our deli, we have a few options to choose from to suit you and your family. Over the years, we’ve had a lot of questions about these meals, so we’d like to answer some of them for you right now. Here are some of the most commonly asked questions and answers about our deli holiday meals:

  • How long do these meals take to make? Some of these meals take up to 2.5 hours to heat. All heating instructions for the items are included with the meal. For your convenience, if anything happens to your instructions, we’ve included the links below.
  • Can I just buy the meat without buying a full meal? You may!
  • Can I just buy the sides without buying the meat? You may!
  • Can I buy the turkey de-boned? You can, but there is an extra charge. For a 10-12 pound turkey, the price is an additional $10, and for 16-18 pound turkeys, the price is an additional $12.
  • Is my meal meant to be cold? The meals are sold cold in our stores and need to be heated at home. The packaging comes with heating instructions for you to follow. One quick note! We’ve had a lot of questions about the turkeys that come with the meals. When you pick up your turkey dinner, the turkey should be cold, thawed and a bit icy, but shouldn’t be frozen.


Our website is the perfect place to check out all the different holiday meal options available right in your local deli.
