The weatherman predicts that this Mother's Day (May 13) will be warm and sunny—not cloudy with a chance of meatballs—but with these delicious Mother's Day meal specials available, we think you'll be plenty hungry nonetheless. Whether Mom prefers a mimosa-accompanied brunch or a hearty dinner, these eateries are sure to hit the spot.

Though there's no kids' menu here, little ones will be happy to share the Mother's Day prime rib special: a 38-ounce prime rib chop on the bone, marinated in herbs and served with fresh veggies and roasted potatoes ($70.50, feeds a family of six).  For dessert, everyone can munch on the heart-shaped chocolate brownie that comes topped with whipped cream, chocolate-covered strawberries and strawberry sauce ($15).
