10 Popular Restaurants To Thank Your Parents At On Parents’ Day

What is Parents’ Day about?

Every fourth Sunday in July, families in the US celebrate Parents’ Day recognizing and thanking the efforts and sacrifices parents made to bring their children up.

How do I celebrate Parents’ Day?

Most families choose to celebrate by enjoying an exceptional meal in a great restaurant, or for some, they prefer to order takeout from the best restaurants and enjoy the meal at the comfort and privacy of their homes. Well, not everybody is comfortable sharing their embarrassing childhood memories in a public restaurant after all. For some, Parents’ Day makes a great reason to take your parents out on a weekend trip to another state/city. What if you are unfamiliar with that area and need to decide on an awesome restaurant (to show your resourcefulness) quickly?

For a start, we have compiled 10 highly popular restaurants in 10 biggest cities in the US. You can’t go wrong with those! As a little extra, we have included what others said about their orders and the restaurants from Find Dining’s reviews!
