12 Spots for BBQ, Beers, and More for Father's Day in Metro Phoenix

Categories: Events

Roaring Fork
Big Ass Burger, featured on the happy hour menu

Father's Day tends to pale in comparison to May's Mother's Day, but there's no reason not to go all-out for both -- especially if that means taking Dad to a metro Phoenix restaurant (or comedy club!) for beers, BBQ, and bar food. There's a lot to enjoy on Sunday, June 16 in the Phoenix area, including a patio grill with games like mini golf, steak dinner specials, and plenty of boozy brunches.

Roaring Fork

Hit up this all-night happy hour at the Saloon & Patio with discounted appetizers like the Big Ass Burger, rotisserie chicken flatbread, and pork wings with Dr. Pepper BBQ sauce. For a more substantial dinner, the restaurant will have a special selection of hearty fare like bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin with cheese grits, sugar-cured duck breast with onion jam and sour cherry mustard, and rainbow trout sautéed with brown butter, roasted almonds, capers, and green beans. Pair your entrée with a specialty cocktail for only $5. For reservations, call 480-947-0795.

Salut Kitchen Bar

Dads can chow down on a free entrée on Father's Day at this new Tempe restaurant. Simply make a reservation for four or more and mention this promotion, and Pop can pick grilled filet mignon, pistachio-crusted salmon, honey-bourbon-glazed pork loin, or a sandwich like the Brie-Hive Panini (warm brie, prosciutto, arugula, and honey butter on sourdough). And if Dad's on a diet, the Sun Devil turkey burger will be a tasty compromise, topped with poblano peppers, avocado, pepper bacon, lettuce, tomato, and chipotle aioli.

Father and Daughter Tea at The Ritz-Carlton

Served from noon to 3 p.m., afternoon tea offers little girls the perfect setting to spend time with Dad on Father's day. Daughters will receive a bouquet of fresh flowers, and dads will get to take home a framed photo capturing the special celebration. Tea time includes finger sandwiches as well as fresh-baked scones and mini pastries. This holiday offer is $38 plus tax and gratuity. Reservations required; call 602-468-0700.

Go Lb. Salt

Arizona's local salt artisans have gourmet gifts and culinary classes just in time for Father's Day. If your papa likes to prepare home-cooked meals from scratch, choose from the DIY Dry-aged beef kit for $50 or a Makin' Bacon curing kit for $10 in flavors like applewood & maple, chocolate, coffee, and savory herb. Or, enjoy quality family time at one of two upcoming classes. The Sea Salt Tasting & Pairing class will be on June 20 ($45 per person), and the BYO Beef class on June 27 will cover the theory and practice of dry aging at home ($110). Check out the company's website to reserve a seat in class, or arrange to pick up your gift kit at a local farmers' market.

I would add Whole Food Market in Chandler for some great BBQ and beers as a destination.
