“Father’s Day Approved” Lunch Spots: Father’s Day is just around the corner on June 16th! And what better way to celebrate dad than with a delicious lunch in his honor? Below are our three favorite “Father’s Day Approved” lunch spots.
- Sauced BBQ and Spirits: Father’s Day and barbequing seem to go hand in hand. But don’t let dad do all the work on his special day! Instead, head on over to Sauced BBQ & Spirits for some good old-fashioned, authentic BBQ with classics including sliced brisket, pulled pork, ribs, and chicken. Oh, and don’t forget the sweet honey cornbread, mac n’ cheese, and crispy fries. With plenty of flat screens and a fun and social environment just across the street from the Golden 1 Center, dad won’t be disappointed.
- Bacon & Butter: Does dad have brunch on his mind? Pay a visit to Bacon & Butter. This popular farm to fork brunch spot now has two locations – one in East Sacramento and the other in Tahoe Park. And it’s no wonder! Their brunch dishes are out of this world. Not sure what to try? For starters, get a side of their crispy bacon. Their grilled cheese benedict is another dish that you can’t go wrong with. Just make sure to arrive around opening time as their locations pack up quickly!
- Crawdads on the River: With beautiful weather and plenty of sunshine ahead, take dad to a lunch spot that not only impresses with its food but also with its killer views. We’ve recommended Crawdads on the River before, but it makes for such a fabulous Father’s Day lunch spot that we had to give this place another shout out. Guests can come by car or boat to enjoy a casual, laid-back atmosphere with fresh seafood, a cool beverage, and mesmerizing views. For starters, try their famous “Crawdad Chowder Fries”, a creative dish that is made up of French fries, clam chowder, cheddar cheese, bacon, green onions, and parsley. It may sound like an odd pairing but trust us when we say it’s delish! If you prefer something lighter, you can’t go wrong with their fresh “Shrimp Cocktail”. For a main, dive into their “Blackened Fish Tacos” or their simple yet mouth-watering “Fish & Chips”.
