So with Father’s Day this Sunday my good friend Kevin from Kevin’s BBQ Joints, put together this great list of barbecue restaurants that you can take your dad to. Hopefully this will be a good base for those wanting to take their Dad’s out. Kevin’s BBQ Joint Website does a great job of listing barbecue restaurants in your area and around the country. Kevin just added a really cool feature to his website where you can now rate and review barbecue joints [after reading our reviews of course!] and to top it all off, Kevin just started to do put together for you custom barbecue joint trips FREE of charge for anyone who wants one! I know that the next time I go out of town, I am going to contact Kevin for him to put together a trip for me!
Take Your Dad Out this Weekend to a Barbecue Joint
“You should take your father to a BBQ Joint for Father’s Day. I implore you. It just makes the most sense. I feel there really is no better way to say “I love you, Dad” other than by you and your Dad getting your hands dirty eating some incredible brisket, ribs, or pulled pork. So I thought I would contact my friends at various BBQ Joints around the country because I thought it would be a natural for them to have barbecue specials just for dear old Dad. Surprisingly, even though they are open on Father’s Day, a majority just don’t need to offer a ‘special’. Most likely because many of them will be sold out of meat by 2 or 3 in the afternoon since that is what a regular Sunday brings for them.
So I quickly changed course and will be providing a list of BBQ Joints that are having specials as well as 20 great BBQ Joints to take your Dad on Father’s Day across the United States (and because I had to widdle this down to 20 I apologize in advance if I left your favorite BBQ Joint out).
