the perfect time to show dad how much he is loved by serving his favorite steak. While all dads are different, your dad's personality may actually determine what steak he enjoys most. Whether he is a mild-mannered filet mignon loving man or a take-charge dad who always orders a strip loin, a big juicy steak on Father's Day is sure to please.

Filet Mignons are mild-mannered, tender-hearted, meticulous and enjoy simple elegance.
Ribeyes are even-tempered, strive for balance in life and have laid-back attitudes with a bit of a maverick spirit.
Strip Loins are passionate and somewhat indulgent, with strong personalities and take-charge attitudes.
Top Sirloins are mainstream with down-to-earth attitudes and a "what you see is what you get" philosophy of life.
