We love you, Dad, just not as much as Mom. Just kidding — of course we love you as much as Mom. More, maybe — let’s prove it with a guide to just a few of the good things kids can treat the old man to this Father’s Day, which officially occurs on Sunday.

Off the Strip dining

Andre’s Bistro & Bar Now, unless you’re British, you may not be too familiar with afternoon tea, but it’s a tradition that ex-pats like to indulge in when they find a place. On Saturdays and Sundays get afternoon tea for $26 per adult and $15 for children, with tons of tea choices, sandwiches, French pastries and English scones. Mommy may just want to join in, too. Limited seating, make reservations at

Bandito Latin Kitchen & Cantina If dad’s big on Mexican food, haul him out to Bandito’s, a cool cantina that just celebrated its first anniversary. Grab some gourmet Barbacoa tacos, or chicken tinga tacos and a Michelada. Cheers, pops! 325 Hughes Center Drive, No. 100 (702) 857-7550

Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse Las Vegas The popular chain offers two specials on Father’s Day — 16-ounce prime rib for $45 (20-ounce for $55), or the Double Eagle Steak, a dry-aged bone-in ribeye that measures up at 3 inches high for $125. 3925 Paradise Road, (702) 796-0063

Hawthorn Grill If your 3-year-old would like to spoil Daddy for a change, head to the Father’s Day Brunch here. Dads can enjoy draft beer, omelets, seafood and a dessert buffet. Seatings are 9:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Cost is $59 per adult, $28 per child. Kids under age 5 eat free! JW Marriott, (702) 869-5955

On the Strip dining

Tom’s Urban Brunch is served from 7 a.m.-4 p.m., and you might want to indulge in cornbread pancakes, while Dad indulges in a 40-ounce Big Ass mug filled with a good draft beer. Aah, yes. New York-New York, (702) 740.6766

Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer Maybe Dad just wants to go out for a burger and a beer — that’s fine, if he doesn’t specify, treat him to The Boss Burger, a behemoth of a double bacon cheeseburger and a craft beer, for $21. The special is available June 15-17. The Venetian, (702) 414-2337
