Sunday is the day to thank the parents and offer them a meal.
To help families celebrate their dad and save some money, several restaurants offer treats and free discounts.
And this Father's Day should break records.
According to the National Retail Federation's annual survey, Americans are expected to spend around $ 16 billion in gifts for their father this year, more than ever and an increase of $ 15.3 billion last year.
The gifts that parents can enjoy with the family, such as outings and meals, are gaining popularity and the federation estimates that almost 47% of consumers have planned a way out.
The restaurants should be busy on Saturday and Sunday, said Brad Plothow, vice president of brand and communications at Womply, a software provider for small businesses.
"Although not as important as Mother's Day, Father's Day weekend is one of the busiest days of the year for local restaurants," said Plothow. "So, if you plan on bringing dad on a Saturday or Sunday, make sure you call ahead and make a reservation."
