if you are staying there, I can't imagine why you would not be able to eat dinner.....have you looked at the Tombstone pages here on Virtual Tourist:

scroll down a little, and on the right side are listed the top 5 entries for this location; so browse them. But since I see several hotels listed there, I would not think you'd have any problems.

Re: A place to eat for Thanksgiving

Tombstone's a really small town. Outside the tourist area, there is really almost nothing as far as restaurants. Try Johnny Ringos, but you should call them first to make sure they're open.
You may have to drive to Benson or Bisbee but, honestly, even those towns may not have anything open. Bisbee is probably more likely to have something open.
Are you flying into Tucson or staying here? I would just eat in Tucson then drive down to Tombstone, because there are quite a few places here that stay open all day, and especially for dinner, on Thanksgiving. Nothing will be open on Allen Street in Tombstone though, so there's really no reason to get down there earlier.

I had to look to make sure Big Nose Kate's Saloon was still there, and yes it is. They have dining both in the Longhorn Restaurant and Cafe Margarita, but as for the traditional Thanksgiving Dinner, I would venture to say yes, but cannot be sure. They are kid friendly too.

Travel Tips for Tombstone

Daily Activities

by painterdave

Tombstone will have attracted many types of tourists. During the day you might see a group of cowboy enthusiasts who will come from out of state, or even another country and they will act out gunfights and skits that they have practiced back home. Tombstone also has daily activities to keep the tourists there and occupied. The longer you stay, the more you open your wallet. You will get hungry, thirsty and your curiosity will encourage you to go visit some private exhibits. There is even a rattlesnake museum along a side street in Tombstone.
Handle with care and only after they have milked the snakes. Just kidding about the milking ......
But the rattlesnake museum is for real, no kidding.
Of course, you can just wander out in the bushes and stick your hand into a few holes or under a bush and find the real thing for free.
Or... you can drive to Tucson and visit the awesome Desert Museum just outside of town. This is one of the best exhibits on animals and desert life I know of. If you want to know more, go to VT my tips on Tucson, painterdave, Desert Museum.

Trinkets, knick-knacks and Mexican blankets

by zrim

If trinkets, knick-knacks and Mexican blankets are your thing--you don't want to take a pass on Tombstone. Personally, I hate kitsch and thus escaped town having spent only 50 cents on a bottled water.

Authentic Old Wooden Sidewalks

by Stephen-KarenConn

Karen and I thoroughly enjoyed strolling up and down Allen Street, the main street of Tombstone, on the authentic old wooden sidewalks. These lead for several blocks on both sides of the street, past saloons, restaurants, museums, gift shops and attractions.

In the olden days, and especially here in the desert where wood had to be hauled a long distance, these sidewalks served a very practical purpose. They lifted pedestrians up and out of the dust, mud and manure of the street. Imagine what it must have been like when there were thousands of horses in Tombstone, each answering the call of nature and leaving their deposits in the street. Let that mess bake in the desert sun, be stomped into dust by other horses and wagons, whipped by the western wind, and then when the rains came you could have a foot or more of manure soup. Thank God for elevated wooden sidewalks.

Wyatt Earp Impersonator at Big Nose Kate's

by Stephen-KarenConn

When we had lunch at Big Nose Kate's I noticed a man walking about the restaurant dressed like pictures I have seen of Wyatt Earp, the gunslinger who helped make Tombstone famous. I asked if he would mind if I took his photo with Karen. Not only did we get the picture, but he dressed Karen up a bit, propped her up on top of the upright piano, and took the pose seen here. Of course there was a spittoon on the piano for tips, which I gladly gave. We got a great souveinr photo of our visit to Tombstone.

Culture of Harley-Davidson

by matcrazy1

I expected to see very many motorbikes including the famous Harley-Davidson bikes on American roads especially in warm climate of the Southwest. I was mistaken. There are very few bikers in the USA. Why? Probably because of poor safety of a biker in case of any accident and thus very expensive insurance.

But as Harley-Davidson and Indian motorbikes are a part of Old Western America legend I could find a few bikers and their old and new bikes in Tombstone. There are also some stores selling Harley-Davidson accessories and items. Four bikes were put inside Big Nose Kate's Saloon and at the end of cowboy show their lights and engines were on.

Until the First World War, the largest motorcycle manufacturer was American Indian. After that, this honor went to Harley-Davidson, until 1928 when german DKW took over as the largest manufacturer. Crossing the continent the famous Route 66 by Harley-Davidson is an American legend. Later motorcycle gangs (the Outlaws, the Hells Angels) which followed the Old Western American outlaws are another legend portrayed in numerous movies like The Wild One from 1953, starring Marlon Brando.
