Ches’s open for Thanksgiving
By LYNETTE SOWELL
Covites looking for a place to have Thanksgiving dinner without the cooking or cleanup will have an option in Copperas Cove.
Ches’s, located at 1807 E. Bus. 190, will be open for special hours on Thanksgiving Day, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., with the last seating for Thanksgiving dinner at 4 p.m.
Desiree Henderson, who along with her husband, Justin, own the restaurant, said it wasn’t a hard decision to open on the holiday.
“We have been so busy with the catering orders and will be cooking those anyway, so we said, ‘Why not just open the restaurant on Thanksgiving Day, too?’”
The restaurant will be open for breakfast and start serving Thanksgiving dinners around 11 a.m.,
In addition to the regular menu, Ches’s is offering a special menu just for Thanksgiving, Henderson said.
“The Thanksgiving combo dinners with both turkey and ham will be $14.99, and the turkey or ham only dinners will be $10.99. Children’s plates under 12 will be $6.99,” said Henderson. Meals include two sides, along with a slice of pie, and tea or coffee included in the price of the meals. Additional sides are $1.29 each. Sides include cornbread dressing, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole and carrot soufflé.
Thursday’s meal will be a family affair, Henderson said, with the employees who work being able to bring their children to the restaurant with them. On Tuesday, the tables in the back room of the restaurant were already decorated and waiting for the families.
In addition to being open on Thanksgiving Day, Ches’s has been selling catered carryout Thanksgiving dinners and is accepting dinner orders through 5 p.m. on Wednesday. For more information about the Thanksgiving Day menu or catering, call (254) 238-8232.
