Family of eight = automatic gratuity. Mike Brady of The Brady Bunch ponders.

Father's Day, celebrated this year on Sunday, June 17, pays tribute to our dads, who, in one sweaty and heated moment, engaged in coitus with our moms and made us the people we are today. Yay, Dad.

But dads aren't all the same, especially when it comes to what they like to eat. So here's a handy little list that helps match the kind of dad with the kind of restaurant he might enjoy the most this Father's Day. And even if they don't match exactly, perhaps the lists will help to spark some ideas. As Dad would say, "Now that's usin' your noodle."

1.) The All-American Dad
He may be a bit clueless at times, but he loves his oddball cousin, holidays (especially Christmas), and will stop at nothing to take the family on vacation. He's not into fancy-schmancy restaurants; he just wants to have a good meal in a place where he can relax and have enough money leftover for another trip to Wally World.

Take him to:
- Beckett's Table, East Phoenix
- Chelsea's Kitchen, East Phoenix
- Liberty Market, Gilbert
- The Parlor Pizzeria, Central Phoenix
- Windsor, Central Phoenix

2.) The Meat-and-Potatoes Dad
He's a motivator, a supporter, and a coach of life's many lessons to his family. Sometimes his love is tough, sometimes tender, but it's always there when you need it. All of which makes him hungry for the food he loves most: good ol' steak and potatoes and, sometimes, a whiskey-flavored drink.

Take him to:
- Arrowhead Grill, Glendale
- BLT Steak, Paradise Valley
- Don & Charlie's, Scottsdale
- Donovan's Steak & Chophouse, East Phoenix
- Durant's, Central Phoenix
