9 Macho Meals for Father’s Day in Westchester County

Father’s Day is just around the corner! Instead of honoring dad with another tie or grill spatula, why not celebrate him with food?

Looking for something special to treat dear old dad? These over-the-top macho meals are a perfect way to say “thanks, dad” on Father’s Day or any other day of the year in Westchester County.


1 Kent Pl, Armonk; 914.273.3535

Every fast-food pizza joint makes a meat lover’s pie, but for Father’s Day, you need something better than a delivery chain. At Amore, the carnivorous pie gets a quality upgrade with five meats — sausage, meatballs, ham, pepperoni, and bacon — all from an authentic Italian butcher on Arthur Avenue.

Little B’s

49 Main St, Tarrytown; 914.631.2228

What’s more macho than burgers, bacon, and beer? At Little B’s, they’re raising the stakes on the bacon cheeseburger by grinding bacon right into the patty, then topping the burger with cheddar cheese and (what else?) more bacon. Of course, the Baconator is sliders, so you can feel good about the small portions, right?

Pizza Barn

471 Central Park Ave, Yonkers; 914.378.1400

Size does matter. We didn’t say it, Pizza Barn did! That’s why their world-famous SuperSlice is two-feet long. If you are an avid pasta lover, indulge in the bestselling penne ala vodka SuperSlice. If you like meals that are out of the ordinary, try a SuperSlice topped with Flamin’ Hot Cheetos or cheeseburgers and fries.

Pizza and Brew Scarsdale

851 Central Park Ave, Scarsdale; 914.472.1032

You can’t bring back the NFL playoffs in June, but you can give pops a taste of Sunday night right here in Westchester. At Pizza and Brew Scarsdale, the homemade fried mozzarella sticks are large and in charge, with an appropriate side of marinara. Available in individual or family-size portions, this classic finger food won’t disappoint.

Sugar Hi

380 Main St #1821, Armonk; 914.273.4777

For human-garbage-bin dads who devour leftover birthday cakes, scrape cookie dough out of the mixing bowl, and nibble at pretty much everything else in the house, Sugar Hi’s cup of Cake Scraps is the perfect dessert. This indulgent treat features the heavenly yellow cake and heaps of cookies and cream filling. Best of all, if an important father in your life lives a little too far from this adorable bake shop, Sugar Hi can ship its scrumptious and creative delicacies nationwide.

X2O Xaviars on the Hudson

71 Water Grant St, Yonkers; 914.965.1111

Make no mis-steak, sometimes all you need is a sprinkle of salt and pepper. But this Father’s Day, you need macho. At X2O on the Hudson, the 2.5-inch ribeye on the bone (40 ounces) marinates in dark brown sugar and cayenne pepper longer than dad can stay awake watching the news (three hours minimum). The exterior is grilled to charred perfection and served with caramelized shallots.
