Simply having a wonderful Christmas time? Good, we thought so. Now here's a list of places you can go on Christmas if you don't have the time or the energy to cook something yourself.
No shame here, I ate tacos last year and they were delightful. (FYI: Taqueria Pico de Gallo was also open on Christmas Day, but I wasn't able to reach them to confirm their schedule this year.) Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and have a special Festivus for the rest of us!
— Chef Wang, 356 E. Grant Road, will be open both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. They'll be serving their full menu with more than 150 dishes, so you can eat like Santa Claus.
— Fatman Kitchen, 2610 N. First Ave., will serve their homemade noodle dishes and Sichuan stir fries from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Here's an idea of what they serve.
— Sher-E-Punjab, 853 E. Grant Road, is open on Christmas Day! It will serve its regular menu, which includes classic entrees like chicken biryani, $8.50, and palak paneer, $7.75. 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. lunch buffet, and 4 to 9 p.m. dinner service.

— The Buffet, 538 E. Ninth St., is open its regular hours 6 a.m. to 2 a.m. every day of the year. Maybe grab a snack before they open though, because they're not doing a potluck this year.
