The Super Bowl has come once again. Tampa Bay and Kansas City will face off on Sunday, February 7. Meanwhile, viewers will be face down in food. Aside from the actual game, continuous munching for the entire day is the other main event. We hope you keep attendance to your immediate household.
Maybe you’ll have queso in the crockpot. Maybe you’re planning to go with a fancy charcuterie board this year—hey, you can assemble the crackers into “L” and “V” shapes.
There is no lack of takeout options—we do have a full list here. Still, we’ve got your back with a few deals and a few favorites that’ll help save you from fussing in the kitchen all morning. Psst. Get our orders in early!
Bryan Street Tavern
Not only are the pizzas coming out of this East Dallas favorite good, they boast toppings you won’t see just anywhere. Behold, the Dalton: spicy buffalo chicken and chunky bleu cheese delivered on a pizza. Two game day foods in one. Genius.
Greenville Avenue Pizza Company
The Super Bowl sampler takes all the guesswork out of feasting during the game. The $55 meal includes a dozen garlic knots, a dozen toasted ravioli, and a dozen pizza poppers. Call either the Greenville Ave. or Peavy Rd. locations to place your order by February 5 at noon.
For that vera napoletana flavor, you have to go with the wood-fired, charred crust from Cane Rosso. There’s soppressata with habanero honey for the spice seekers or pies crowned with Luscher’s Red Hots. Throwing some arugula intermingled with shaved prosciutto counts as “getting in your greens” for the day, trust us.
This pizzeria by Fair Park makes big, round hearty pies that put the thin-crust counterparts to shame. While the dough is light on flavor and intrigue, the toppings—from Jimmy’s Italian sausage to habanero peppers to a cheeseburger in pizza form—make up for it ten-fold. The garlic knots are the greasiest, best knots in town. (For those who must know, Pie Tap’s knots with parmesan cheese dip is a close runner-up.)
Speaking of thick pizza, the burst of Detroit-style pie in Dallas has truly uplifted the pizza scene. Among them, Thunderbird Pies is a standout. The tall sides of the pizza have a caramelized cheddar exterior. Meanwhile, what’s on top ranges from fried chicken and ricotta to meatballs and parmesan.
The recent Dallas arrival has whole game day meal packs ready to go. The EndZone Wings comes with a dozen chicken biscuits, mac and cheese, and corn meal fried okra. Most meal packs are around $100.
Lovely plated food may spring to mind when you think of this Matt McCallister restaurant, but make no mistake, Homewood knows how to do homey fare, too. Just check out Sunday’s Super Bowl to-go meal with a dozen chicken wings (either classic or gochujang sauce), barbecue pulled pork sliders, loaded tater skins (bump up the bougie level by adding caviar), bacon-wrapped jalapeños with cream cheese, and onion fritters. Orders are $65 for two very hungry people. For another $30, throw in some cocktails by the quart (marg, old fashioned, or daiquiri). Call 214-434-1244 or email [email protected] by February 5 at 5 p.m. Pick February 7 between noon and 3.
Ten Bells Tavern
The wings at this Oak Cliff tavern have spawned a loyal following, and for good reason. Its garlicky secret sauce with beer, brown sugar, and Frank’s Red Hot produces a deep crimson sheath for a plate of drumettes.
Mighty Chick Beer Chicken
Last year, two Korean transplants from New York opened a restaurant out in Watauga, slinging a whole menu of chicken dishes, including wings (get them extra crispy, Nashville hot, or cheesy snowflake, a popular Korean-style chicken cheese powder seasoning) and nuggets, aka “chicken bombs” that come in barbecue soy garlic, Seoul hot spicy, sweet and spice, crispy, and cheesy flavors.
While Louisiana-style seafood and other NOLA food favorites reign at this restaurant, don’t sleep on the hand-battered wings marinated in Cajun spices. Get them dry-rubbed, with lemon pepper seasoning, or served alongside various sauces—the “Hella OMG Spicy” sauce is certainly for the heat lovers.
The South Korean fast-casual chain serves its much-hyped fried chicken from its location in The Colony. Platters of crispy bird arrives coated in signature sauces like a spicy gochujang and soy garlic, alongside parmesan-dusted crinkle cut fries. (Bonchon has another location coming to Addison with plans to open this month.)
LB Wings and Babb Bros. BBQ
This is a two-in-one wings and ‘cue team up between two Trinity Groves spots. Get a feast of 16 wings, 16 chicken tenders, one and a half pounds of pork with slider buns, three sauces, plus toppings ($55). Order online by Friday, February 5 at 5 p.m., pick up on Sunday, February 7.
One90 Smoked Meats
Grab a barbecue smorgasbord that will cover all the snacking bases: a pound of sliced brisket and pulled pork, one rack of ribs, salmon dip, and a pint of queso. Preorder for $100 by February 5 at 5 p.m.
At this den of Central Texas barbecue, you can order for a horde or just for you. Either way, you’ll be set come Sunday. Find smoky chicken, sausage, pork chops and ribs. You can choose the fattiness of your brisket or go for the should clod, brisket’s leaner cousin, if you’re not trying to overdo with rich foods. As always check the specials on Lockhart’s Facebook page (most recently it featured the three p’s: prime rib, pulled pork, and peach cobbler).
Terry Black’s Barbecue
The Deep Ellum ‘cue joint has small and large family packs that are, well, packed with meat (choose from chopped beef, pork ribs, sliced brisket, and more) and sides, like cream corn, mac and cheese, and pinto beans.
Smokey John’s Bar-B-Que
The “Big Game” pack boasts two pounds of ribs, three pounds of smoked chicken wings, a half-gallon of brisket queso, and a gallon of Smokey John’s sweet tea or lemonade. This order is not for the faint of heart. Get it all for $100.
