And by golly I'm going to repeat the info for y'all, because:
1) I like the burgers at The Counter
2) Any discount there is good since their food is kinda expensive when you think about it.
The deets are this: You have to get your dad, or yourself, or whoever wants to pass as a father, to say “I want the BFD!” during the day of the promotion. (BFD = Burger For Dad). The offer is limited to one “standard burger with included toppings per customer accompanied by a paying guest. Additional and premium toppings such as extra cheese, avocado, fried egg and honey cured bacon are extra.”
If you're treating your dad, you probably want to spring for a glass of beer to make up for that tie you got that he's never going to wear. You did get his burger for free after all.
