Father's Day is on Sunday, and several of Wichita's most man-friendly restaurants are advertising brunches that include barbecue, steak and other dishes dads like.
Good news: For some reason, brunches are typically much cheaper on Father's Day than they are on Mother's Day, so you can celebrate dad and save some cash. He would probably approve.
Some may require reservations:
