There is nothing more enjoyable than eating a home-cooked meal with your favorite people and that is what you will find and enjoy at Mama’s Farmhouse in Pigeon Forge.

If you have a big appetite, the Alamo Steakhouse is going to be the place for you on Thanksgiving Day. With a wide variety on their menu, there is something for the whole family to choose from.
