Father's Day is just around the corner, and the last thing you want is for Pops to go hungry on his big day. The good news is you don't have to cook — and you don't have to look hard to find hot deals on food and drinks this Sunday, June 21.
Here are 15 Father's Day food and drink specials to get you started.
If you're looking for a western Father's Day brunch option, Perk Eatery will be offering a special dish for dads (and others) on Father's Day. The restaurant will serve a "cowboy" steak and eggs plate ($15) featuring filet medallions and rosemary potatoes; the regular menu will also be available, and brunch is served until 3 p.m.
Casino and hotel restaurants are generally a pretty safe bet for holiday meals, particularly when it comes to pleasing fathers with luxurious steaks and endless buffets. Casino Arizona will be no different, as the venue will host a buffet with all of the usual fare ($30), a pair of prix fixe menus at Cholla Prime Steakhouse ($29) and Willows Restaurant ($22), and a few other Father's Day specials beginning at $7.50 each.
Maybe your dad isn't into big fancy brunches. Maybe he's just a sucker for a breakfast burrito and a good "manmosa" — a twist on a mimosa that swaps hefeweizen beer for champagne in a traditional mimosa. Maybe you're not celebrating Father's Day with the family, and just want a breakfast burrito and manmosa for yourself, who are we to judge? In any case, it you head to 32 Shea before noon, you'll be able to snag one of their New Mexico burritos and the mimosa's masculine cousin for only $10.
If dad's not worried about balling on a budget this year, Marcellino is definitely one of the options to keep in mind. Aside from the usual Italian cuisine, the restaurant will also serve a bevy of deluxe grilled options such as rib eye ($50), veal chop ($54), and filet mignon ($43). Each one is served with potatoes and vegetables, as well as a complimentary tiramisu for dads.
Paul Martin's American Grill
Whether you're doing Father's Day brunch or dinner, Paul Martin's has got you covered. For brunch, you'll have options including French Toast, Eggs Benedict, and an omelet, all of which will be served with biscuits and fruit ($16 each). And in the evening, the restaurant will offer a single dinner special: prime rib with mashed potatoes, salad, and a dessert of homemade ice cream ($25). The regular menu will also be available for purchase.
Sauce Pizza & Wine
Does pops want something on the lighter side? Well, you and he can split a Summer Sampler at Sauce, where you'll be able to get a salad (including the summer-specific watermelon salad), a 12-inch pizza and two glasses of wine for only $20. While it might not be the fanciest Father's Day meal, it'll let him save that tie you bought him last year for another occasion.
Nellie Cashman's Monday Club Cafe
Nothing says Father's Day quite like beer and brunch, so this restaurant inside of the Westin Kierland Resort has decided to throw a beer brunch for dads and their families this year. The brunch will include beer-themed dishes such as oatmeal stout braised short ribs and Shiner Bock braised mussels, as well as non-beer items such as lobster macaroni and cheese and a variety of other seafood options. Dads even receive a complimentary beer with the $37 brunch.
Speaking of restaurants inside of hotels, Zuzu will be offering both Father's Day brunch and dinner specials this year. At 3 p.m., the menu switches over from breakfast specials including braised pork Benedict ($15) to dinner options including pan-seared salmon ($30). The dessert specials are served all day, and include peach cobbler and German chocolate cake, each for $8 a piece.
Cibo e Vino
For those dads who live in the far north Valley, Cibo e Vino will be serving up a handful of Father's Day specials. The Italian restaurant will have seafood options such as pan-seared swordfish and pistachio-crusted sea bass for fathers and their families. If you're not into seafood, they'll also have specials includling four cheese risotto and lamb shank in addition to the restaurant's standard menu for the day.
Chandler's Social Box will be offering dads some great deals on their traditional menu this Father's Day. For those who are really pinching pennies, $8 will get you the SoBo Burger Basket with fries and a draft beer, while $14 scores you the SoBo Steak Sandwich, fries, and a draft beer. Of course, if your old man isn't into drinking, there are also non-alcoholic drink options included for the same price.
While we're on the topic of burgers and drinks, Roaring Fork will be offering up a similar deal, with a more famous burger. Their signature Big Ass Burger will be available with a drink for $15 after 4 p.m. on Father's Day, and the drink list isn't too shabby either. Cocktail options include everything from mojitos and margaritas to martinis and manhattans. There will also be wine available, for those who aren't into hard liquor with their massive burgers.
For Father's Day LON's will have the same delicious brunch that they always have (plus a rib eye option), but the real festivities start at 6 p.m. when the restaurant's BBQ kicks off. The three-course meal is centered around the BBQ sampler entree, which features brisket, suckling pig, bratwurst, and much more for $45 per person. You'll also get two sides, an appetizer and dessert, plus $6 draft beers all day.
Rusconi's American Kitchen
If you're not a dad, there's really no reason to go to Rusconi's on Father's Day. If you are a dad, there's a lot of reason to go to Rusconi's on Father's Day. Beginning at 4 p.m., Rusconi's will be doing a special for dads (and dads only) in addition to their regular dinner menu. For $39, dads will get their choice of any appetizer or salad, a 12 oz. rib eye steak, and a dark chocolate bread pudding. No word on whether non-dads will be allowed to share the pudding, but we don't blame dads for not sharing this time around.
What do dads hate more than anything else? Missing major sporting events. Luckily, at Padre Murphy's, you can have the best of both worlds. There will be sports on more televisions than you can count at the restaurant, and Father's Day food specials to go along with the games. Aside from the regular menu, there will be a rib eye steak ($16), shrimp jambalaya ($10), and lasagna ($13). Since no game is complete without a drink, there are plenty of alcohol specials to go around as well.

Soft drinks are free, but alcohol and ice cream will cost you extra. Those pizza buffet places sure know how to charge for the finer things in life.
