Dads are the best and what better way to treat dad than with our house-made Original BT Burger? Or maybe Dad is a Fork-tender Short Rib fan, served with creamy mashed potatoes and seasonal veggies. He can wash it all down with nearly 140 wines to choose from our temperature controlled cellar.

What all American dad doesn’t love pizza? (If there are some out there that don’t, its okay, this deal will still work for them!) Fired Pie will be running a buy one entrée get one free, just for dads. (This deal won’t work for third party deliveries like Uber Eats and the like or call in orders.)
Why Dad Will Love It | If you have the kind of dad that isn’t eager to get dressed up and don that new tie you got him (and seriously, why are we still getting dads ties?!) this is the deal for him. When you head over to Fired Pie, there’s no need to get dressed up and we know there are some dads out there that are going to appreciate that!

There is a ton for Dad to do at the resort for Fathers Day. He can get a little vitamin D from the four acre water park or 18 hole putting course. He can also expand on his ‘que skills with a grill master class where he can make his own signature dry rub while getting valuable tips on smoking meats and grilling his own lunch at the Hole-in-the-Wall restaurant ($25 on Thursday from noon until 3pm). The resort will also feature a special Huss Brewery beer dinner at Rico’s American Grill for $45 per person on Thursday at 6:30pm. You can get a complete rundown on the resort website.

“While most restaurants you might encounter a wait of 45 minutes or more for a holiday occasion, Scramble’s quick casual approach affords you the ability to dine and sit with dad as long as you like as our tables turn really fast,” said Co-Owner Clay Moizo. Your entire dining experience can take 45 minutes to an hour instead of waiting that long just to sit down. Once you’re seated, we invite you to stay awhile, relax and enjoy time with family.”
Why Dad Will Love It | One word: Breakfast! Dads love breakfast and there are options for every taste. We suggest the Santa Fe Benedict for dads that like a little heat!

5101 N. 44th St. | Phoenix | 85018 | 602.271.4400
June 18th | Beginning at 11am
This year treat dad to a Sunday where he can step away from the grill and choose from an array of dishes that are sure to surpass even his own grilling standards. Dads can enjoy steaks and chops that are responsibly farmed and wet aged 28 days. The meats are then hand cut in-house by a master butcher to ensure a mouthwatering experience. Some of the savory favorites perfect for Dad include NY Strip, Bone-in Filet Mignon or Ribeye, Domestic Wagyu Filet, or Bone-in KC Strip. All entrées are offered along with a wide selection of sides to choose from including the Roasted Sweet Potatoes, made with Bourbon and topped with torched marshmallow or Alaskan King Crab & Rock Shrimp Mac and Cheese served with lemon butter, provolone and Tillamook cheddar.
Why Dad Will Love It | They get to step away from the grill! No matter how serious your dad is about his pit master duties, it will be a real treat for him to have someone grill for him for a change. There’s no better team to take over those responsibilities that the folks at Steak 44.

Why Dad Will Love It | If the free dessert doesn’t have you sold, Dad can really sink his teeth into The Big Daddy; a 16 ounce hand cut, choice, aged NY strip steak smothered in sautéed onions for only $26.95.

You know we have mad love for tacos and for all of the heart behind the menu at Wadaa. Turns out they have mad love for dads and will be offering a free taco just for dad.
Why Dad Will Love It| C’mon! Tacos! The steak taco here is the closest you will get to an authentic street taco this side of the border!
