A Dozen Dining Destinations for Dad

When we think about Father's Day in our house a few things come to mind: Sports, in particular golf. This year the US Open final is on Father's Day. We also think of food, in particular beef.

When I think of Father’s Day and food one image immediately comes to mind…the perfectly grilled steak. What could be better?

    Hey jack, love your reviews! DOn;t forget the ALl-Time best for Dad, lee Roy Selmon's. They are giving Dad's a $10.00 gift card when they dine in the restaurant to return -- now that is a great Father's Day meal- best ribs, brisket and fried green tomatoes around!!

    I'm definitely taking my Dad to Lee Roy Selmon's! He loves the 'Twisted Chicken' and the 'Hall of Fame Ribs'! Maybe I'll just have to order him both :)
