I love when people message me asking for advice. This question comes from Jennifer via my Facebook page.

“Love all your stories and lists! They are such a life saver! I am curious if you have one for restaurants open for Christmas Day in the Twin Cities?”

Jennifer, ask and you shall receive!

If hours aren’t listed below, I was not able to verify the information with the restaurant. If there’s a restaurant I should add to this list, email mike@givemethemike.com

Additional resources

If you want food from a chain restaurant, this list might help. Today reports that some Applebee’s, Denny’s, Buffalo Wild Wings, and Domino’s will be open on Christmas Day, however, I couldn’t confirm Christmas Day hours for Minnesota locations online.
