What would you cook for your dad's 50th birthday?

My wife's dad is turning 50 years old next weekend. He's been in a wheelchair for the last 10 years due to the car accident. We are throwing a surprise party for him at our house and need some idea on what dishes to prepare. He LOVES the old fashioned barbecue, filet is his favorite. We have over 30 guests coming. What would you cook for the guests, most importantly the dad, if you were us?
