Restaurant open on Christmas in Mesa or surrounding area?

We are looking for a restaurant that would be open on Christmas Day for a large group of people (10-12) for dinner. We would also consider a restaurant or store that makes the meal, and we could pick it up and eat it at home. Any suggestions?

I will keep an eye on ads in the AZ Republic, but haven't seen much yet. Of course, there's always the Golden Corral...

I'm guessing the Arizona Golf Resort and Painted Mountain restaurants will be open, although they get mixed reviews.

All of the grocery stores (Fry's. Safeway, Basha's, Albertson's) will have precooked meals available. I've never done that so don't have any recommendations, although if I was doing it I think I would try Sprout's.

I would also recommend some of the hotel restaurants. Arizona Golf Resort, Marriott, Hilton, Holiday Inn, etc... http://tinyurl.com/7c3n97j

El Chorro is always open Christmas day and they take groups. Our neighbors go there every year. The sticky buns are to die for.

Sprouts prepares holiday meals. Probably run about $60 for up to 4 people.

My sister and I did that last Christmas. The info isnt on their website yet. I emailed them to ask.
