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

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.


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, they’re giving this carnivorous pie a quality upgrade with five meats — fennel sausage, meatballs, ham, pepperoni, and bacon — all from an authentic Italian butcher on Arthur Avenue.

Broccoli’s Luncheonette

23 Cedar St, Dobbs Ferry; 914.693.8000

Forget everything you know about the five-dollar foot long, Broccoli’s Luncheonette is serving up something epic. House made pork sausage, chicken cutlet, and hot peppers served on a roll, wedge, or gluten-free wrap. The signature chicken scarp sandwich is perfect for anyone in a time crunch or looking for a takeout option.

The Countryside Kitchen

493 Route 6, Mahopac; 845.803.8420

If you cannoli make it out for breakfast, Countryside Kitchen has an assortment of monster-sized pancakes welcoming Westchesterites across the county border. The house famous Holy Cannoli pancake — coming in at 12 inches tubular — is a fluffy and unforgettable buttermilk pancake stuffed and topped with cannoli cream.

The Dog Den

1 Main St, White Plains; 914.328.3288

The Dog Den really knocked it out of the park with this one. This signature hotdog is topped with French fries, shredded cheese, BBQ sauce, bacon bits, and chopped onion. They call it The Grand Slam and it is a game changer! With over 50 signature hotdogs, every macho man is sure to find the hotdog of their dreams.

Fogo De Chão

253 Main St, White Plains 914.697.8600

Looking for a way to make this Father’s Day an experience to remember? The continuous tableside service of fire-roasted meat from Fogo De Chão is guaranteed to make even the macho-est man feel like a king. Signature cuts of filet mignon (tenderloin), cordeiro (lamb), picanha de Porco (pork picanha) and more, are paired with traditional Brazilian side dishes that will have your tastebuds dancing like its Carnivale.

The Hudson Creamery

55 Hudson Ave, Peekskill; 914.293.7811

What makes a manly dessert? Chocolate, stout, and whiskey! At The Hudson Creamery this decadent sundae features chocolate ice cream, Guinness-chocolate reduction, Jameson caramel sauce, almonds, and a Cadbury Flake Bar. If bigger is better, the Hudson Sundae — five scoops of ice cream, five toppings, and either a cookie or a brownie — is massively delicious.

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, they’re sliders, so you can feel good about the small portions, right?

NY Firehouse Grille

63 Welcher Ave, Peekskill; 914.788.0808

Wings just might be the quintessential dude food. If you like them spicy (really, really spicy), you’ve got to order the Waiver Wings at NY Firehouse Grille. The name says it all: They’re so hot you have to sign a waiver before you eat them, but you can also choose from more than 50 other varieties.

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 their 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, they can ship their scrumptious and creative delicacies nationwide.

X20 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 X20 on the Hudson, the 2.5-inch rib-eye 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.
