Everyone knows the only thing typical Texas dads love eating more than Finasteride pills are huge hunks of meat—downed, of course, with an old-fashioned. Fortunately, Sunday, June 19, is Father’s Day, and there are plenty of bars and restaurants in Houston that are rolling out the culinary red carpet for area dads this weekend. 

Whether your dad is in the mood for a prix fixe meal at Ouisie’s Table or a succulent piece of a whole-roasted hog from Feges BBQ, we’ve rounded up some Father’s Day restaurant specials below that, if you treat your dad to them, will make you a shoo-in for favorite child status this year.
