50 million Americans expected to dine out for Father's Day

About 50 million adults will dine at a restaurant this Sunday to celebrate Father's Day, the National Restaurant Association projects.

New NRA research shows that dinner will be the most popular meal time on Father's Day, with 67 percent of Father's Day diners saying they plan to go to a restaurant for dinner on June 19. Twenty-four percent plan to go out for lunch, 10 percent for brunch, and 11 percent for breakfast.

On choosing where to eat: Sixty percent of patrons said it'll be Dad's favorite restaurant, whether the restaurant has Father's Day specials or not. Fifteen percent will choose a kid-friendly restaurant, 13 percent plan to go to a restaurant Dad hasn't been to before, and 6 percent will choose based on Father's Day food and drink specials.

The research is based on a survey of 1,000 adults. Get more details here.
