A few restaurants open for Christmas Day
By Deirdre Parker Smith
Are you looking for a place to eat on Christmas Day? It isn’t easy to find a restaurant that is open, but a few around Salisbury will be serving during the day.
Thelma’s at West End Plaza will be open Christmas Day, serving from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. You’ll always get a warm welcome and plenty of down-home food at Thelma’s.
Chef Santos, at 123 E. Fisher St. is usually open Christmas Day.
China Buffet, at 205 N. Arlington St., will be open 11 a.m.-9:30 p.m. Chinese restaurants are a popular place for Christmas meals in larger cities.
As the folks at Waffle House say, “We’re always open.” There are two locations in Salisbury, at 936 Jake Alexander Blvd. W. and at 501 E. Innes St.
Other national chains iHop and McDonald’s should also be open on Christmas Day, as well as Applebee’s.
K&W Cafeteria will be open until 4 p.m. on Christmas Eve, but closed on Christmas Day. Cracker Barrel closes at 2 p.m. on Christmas Eve.
Domino’s will not be delivering pizza on Christmas Day, either. Most Papa John’s locations are closed, too. Marco’s is generally closed on Christmas Day
And there will be no “hot doughnuts now” on Christmas Day — Krispy Kreme and Dunkin’ Donuts are closed, though both will be open on Christmas Eve until late afternoon.
Most restaurants that will close do so to give employees time to spend with family.
