Norma’s Continues Free Thanksgiving Tradition


This year, Norma’s Cafe, Dallas’ dining icon that has served DFW home cooking for more than 63 years, continues a 31 year long tradition as it opens its Oak Cliff doors on Thursday, Nov. 28 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for its annual free Thanksgiving dinner.

Guests taking part in the free Thanksgiving dinner will be served a feast of holiday favorites, including turkey and dressing with giblet gravy and cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, English peas, salad, rolls, fruit and dessert. The free meal will only be available at the original Norma’s Cafe Oak Cliff location on 1123 W. Davis Street in Dallas. Guests are encouraged to arrive early, as thousands of meals will be served between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

“It’s humbling to work with members of our community who have such a great passion for giving back to our Dallas neighbors who would otherwise be alone on Thanksgiving,” said Ed Murph, owner of Norma’s Cafe. “It’s hard to believe we served 100 free meals 31 years ago when we started this tradition, which has now turned into more than 8,000 free meals to individuals, families, local homeless shelters and houses of worship. We truly could not accomplish this level of giving back without the incredible community of team members, partners and volunteers who have stood beside us throughout the years.”
