Take home Christmas turkey, brisket & tamales this season from The Horseshoe Grill

This season, let the best gift of all be a meal smoked over mesquite wood.

It happens every year. You’re taking sips from your glass of eggnog, possibly watching a holiday-themed movie on TV, and thinking about how much time you still have to prepare a Christmas dinner.

In reality, the festivities with the family are literally days away.

So, if you’ve been lucky enough to inherit the cooking responsibilities for this year’s feast, and you’re a little on the overwhelmed side of the dinner table, don’t fret because The Horseshoe Grill is granting all of your holiday wishes.

From now until Monday, December 17, the east side restaurant is accepting orders to be picked up between the times of 11 a.m. – 8 p.m. on Saturday, December 22. This year, you’ve got your choice of turkey, brisket, or pasilla tamales — perhaps all three of the choices if you’re looking for a variety on the table.

Also, since it is a time to receive gifts, but more importantly give, the Horseshoe Grill is giving $10 for every $50 spent and also $20 for every $100 spent on holiday orders.
