Top 7 Places in Houston for Halal Turkey

My family does not celebrate Thanksgiving Day but my girls wanted to try some halal turkey this year. I decided to look for some options in the Greater Houston Area since I was not in a mood to cook an elaborate meal at home.

These are some places that I found which offer roasted halal turkey as part of a complete Thanksgiving dinner menu. These include both Take Out as well as Dine-In options for lunch/ dinner.

I must state that since I am yet to try any of these`places, I have not ranked them in any particular order.
