Who really wants to cook on Christmas day? I know I don't! Here are six restaurants that will be open on Christmas. 

Let's face it: Opening presents is exhausting (there's no denying that), and nobody wants to have to cook on top of it all. Since everyone has the day (or week) off, your goal should be to just focus on relaxing and spending time with your family!

Want to go out to a nice place and let someone else do the cooking for you? You're in luck because these six places are open on Christmas in Hampton Roads. 

Quick and easy sit-downs:

IHOP is always a great location to take the family! They offer a variety of dishes for every meal of the day -- the current special is a Grinch meal with green pancakes! Prices are very reasonable (between $3-$12), and to help you save extra money, they're offering a free kid's entree for every adult entree -- what a deal! Locations can be found all over Hampton Roads.
