“Want to hear a joke about paper? Nevermind; it's tearable.” If you've heard this joke before, you've probably heard it from a dad. Across the board, dads are known for their cheesy jokes. As much as we may roll our eyes and groan, deep down, many of us appreciate a dad being a dad. This Father's Day, show the pop in your world some love – not just for his jokes, but for being "dad." Trying to come up with some gift ideas? Here are some local Lubbock spots that he might not see coming...

  • Brisket and ribs and sausage...oh my! All day long, the DJ's Smokin BBQ truck serves up mouth-watering meat. Let Dad have a break from working the grill this Father’s Day, and let DJ’s fix you up.
