However, all is not lost. If your dad doesn't need a new tool set or has enough ties to open up his own eBay store (and make a decent profit), give him a gift that will never go out of style: food. This Father's Day, several restaurants will be offering dads across the country all sorts of treats at no extra charge. Yes, that's right — your dear papa can reap the benefits of free food just for being the wonderful father that he is!

Below, we've rounded up the best Father's Day food freebies. Unless noted, these offers are valid on June 16 only:

The Spaghetti Warehouse

Freebie: Mamma mia! Dads who dine at The Spaghetti Warehouse for lunch or dinner can enjoy a free Lasagne or Original Recipe Spaghetti via this printable coupon. Each meal also includes sourdough bread plus a choice of bottomless salad or soup. Buon appetito, padre!


Freebie: This family restaurant will be offering a Father's Day Buffet featuring meatloaf, ribs, garlic shrimp, and other goodies. Dads can indulge their sweet tooth with a free Hot Fudge Cake when they present this printable coupon.

Boston Market

Freebie: Tell your dad to step away from the grill and let someone else do the barbecuing for him on his special day. Redeem this printable coupon at Boston Market for a 2-for-1 BBQ Ribs Meal deal. Yes, that's two heaping helpings of ribs for the price of one. (And maybe dad will even share.)


Freebie: If your father fancies himself a froyo aficionado, take him to a participating TCBY for a free frozen yogurt (up to a 6-oz. cup). Visit your nearest participating store for details.

Buca di Beppo

Freebie: To paraphrase a famous line from The Godfather: Leave this printable coupon; take the cannoli (at no extra cost).
