Our Story and Menus

Our Story

We’ve got what America’s hungry for…Fresh roasted turkey, carved by hand. Steaming hot stuffing, fragrant with celery, onions and spices. Tangy cranberry sauce. Thick slices of freshly baked bread. Giant spoonfuls of real mashed potatoes. Homestyle gravy, simmering hot.

Our fresh turkeys are slow roasted to perfection each day. Our breads are baked and delivered each morning by local artisan bakers. Each of our ingredients and every recipe is carefully chosen and constantly evaluated. At The Original Turkey, we refuse to compromise on quality. It’s a difference customers notice.

Customers come for the variety of gourmet sandwiches, for the hot turkey platters, for the delicious array of breads and side orders–from our famous stuffing to the real mashed potatoes to baked macaroni and cheese. Real Food. Comfort Food.
