Where to Treat Your Pops on Father’s Day in Dallas

The ultimate daddy-o of all time.
The ultimate daddy-o of all time.

Father’s Day is nigh (June 16 to be exact), which means you have <2 weeks to start thinking about your old man’s gift. Your life will probably be easier if you just take him out to lunch or dinner. Whatdyathink? Then he can spend the rest of the day in front of the telly with his watermelon belly, full and happy. Yeah. My idea is brilliant.

I have a tiny, tiny list of places to take your pops, but I’m sure more restaurants will want me to add them in later. Keep checking back. You know the drill.
