Father's Day is coming up and what better meal for Dad than a big ol' plate of meat? Here's a few suggestions where Dad can get his fill of beef and pork in CNY.

1. Piggy Pat's BBQ

Piggy Pat's has a long history of pleasing carnivores in the Utica-Rome area. Their beef brisket and pulled-pork are local favorites.

2. Bone Yard BBQ

One of the area's newest options for BBQ. If Dad loves ribs, the reviews of Bone yard BBQ's ribs are full of praise.

3. Kirby's Grill and Taphouse

If it's been a while since you've been to Kirby's on Commercial Drive, time to head back. Aside from their amazing cuts of steak, burgers and even fantastic lobster tail, Kirby's now serves a ton of local beer on draft.

4. Copper Moose Ale House

If Dad loves burgers and comfort food, give the Copper Moose a try. With daily specials on everything from appetizers to prime rib, Dad will leave in a food coma. Try the Smoked Pork and Mashed bowl.

5. Big Bet Burger Challenge at Mr. G's (Vernon Downs)

Want to make sure Dad has one of the best burgers around all while making sure he definitely gets his fill? The Big Bet Burger Challenge features a 1 pound burger, 8 strips of bacon, 6 onion rings, 2 fried eggs, 4 slices of cheddar cheese, 2 pieces of lettuce, 4 slices of tomato, 2 slices of red onion, 2 pickles, 1 pound of french fries, and of course a milkshake to wash it all down for just $20. Take that Dad's stomach!

Happy eating and Happy Father's day to all the Dad's out there. And thanks for teaching us how to eat.
