Dad can always go to a steakhouse. This Father's Day, take him someplace different. Like -- a gas station? Chef Point Cafe in Watauga hit the big time this week. The tiny Conoco gas station-cafe on Watauga Road made The New York Times, days before dads hit the door in search of crab cakes or duck a l'orange and maybe a quart of motor oil to go. The Times liked seeing diners in the convenience store, "flipping through old issues of Auto Trader and trying not to upset the racks of beef jerky as they waited at least an hour for the hostess to tell them their table was ready." The wait will get shorter by fall, when Chef Point expands. For now, chef Franson Nwaeze offers a Father's Day menu for dine-in or takeout. Features include steak and lobster ($39), stuffed flounder with crab ($19) or duck a l'orange ($20). Chef Point is open 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Sunday. It's open daily for lunch and dinner and Saturdays for breakfast; 5901 Watauga Road, east of U.S. 377, 817-656-0080, www.chefpointcafe.org.
