Where to Eat on Father's Day

Treat Dad to Something Sweet and Something with Meat.

On the Menu

Unlike Mother's Day, Father's Day is not filled with champagne and mimosa brunches or frou-frou breakfasts in bed. But that doesn't mean you can't take your dad out for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even cupcakes this Sunday.

Show Dad how much you love him by filling his stomach with delicious food from one of these many Houston restaurants offering Father's Day specials.

Mention the phrase “Burgers for Dad” this Father’s Day and your dad can enjoy a complimentary 1/3-pound burger from The Counter.
