Try something a little out of the ordinary.
Your dad will toast to you for bringing him to this resto that serves up hearty Southern American comfort food. But what’s the real deal here are the unique twists on classics such as the Mac and Cheese Burger (only available for brunch) and its popular 3-course Family Style Dinner (only available for dinner). And, of course, its take on a fast food staple, the Beast Burger that is (in their words): “1.6 pounds of juicy beef patty, 1 pound of slow cooked pulled, 1 pound of Southern buttermilk fried chicken and a good serving of slaw, lettuce and tomato wedged between a custom-made 9 inch bun, served with a bucket of fries.” Heartburn.

On 16 June, Dad gets a complimentary two glasses of alcohol or non-alcoholic drinks and a free-flow of cheese wheel risotoo (available only for lunch on that day)!
