I think most dads can attest to the fact that the way to their hearts is through their stomachs, which means they deserve nothing but a feast for dinner on Father's Day to show just how much you love and appreciate them. If you're stumped on what to cook up this year, we're here to help. We put together three easy yet extra-fun menus to choose from. Whether your dad is craving a classic steak dinner or just a few good slices of pizza, he's sure to love these dinner ideas.
A Classic Grilled Steak Dinner
For many dads, Father's Day isn't Father's Day without a big, juicy piece of steak. Embrace grilling season by making the whole dinner on the grill — even the appetizers (stuffed mushrooms and oysters) and dessert. Just don't forget to serve him an Old Fashioned before firing up the grill.

A Festive Taco Night for Dad
Or celebrate your dad by cooking up a celebratory taco feast, complete with coleslaw, corn salad, all the fixings like guacamole and salsa, and a spicy and refreshing margarita. Leaning on your slow cooker to make the juicy chicken for the filling means you have more time to spend out and about with Dad on his day.

A Pizza Party on the Grill
Turning Father's Day into a pizza party won't just make Dad happy — it will make everyone around him cheer. Since it's summer, it only makes sense to take the party outside (this also prevents you from heating up the kitchen) and grill the pies. A few bites, like zucchini roll-ups and stuffed peppadew peppers, will keep Dad happy while he's sipping a Negroni. Finish the night off with ice cream sundaes.
