Fathers. The backbone of a family, the ones who make sure there’s always food on the table and coins jingling in our pockets. The ones you’d go to for advice on pretty much anything, and you know they’ll always be there to listen. They’re wise, ‘funny’ (at least they like to think they are), strong, and caring in their own way.
Father’s Day is coming up this Sunday, 19th of June, and your dad (or the father figure in your life) definitely deserves a treat for everything that he’s done for you. In appreciation of dads everywhere, the following restaurants are serving free meals to dads, so you won’t have to stress too much if you’re on a budget. Check out this list to plan your Sunday dinner with your beloved father:
If your dad is a carnivorous eater and a fan of big, hearty dishes, why not treat him to a free grilled lamb steak at TGI Fridays? There’ll be no doubt that you’ll all be full to the brim at the end of the meal. For the icing on the cake, finish off your meal with their famous molten chocolate cake or red velvet bundt!
Free grilled lamb applicable with purchase of one main entrée.
