For many Americans, Super Bowl Sunday is a holiday. There are rules and rituals to follow, guacamole quotas to meet and commercials to scrutinize. One ubiquitous feature of the Super Bowl experience is food. What you eat during the game is often as important as the teams themselves. So whether you’re rooting for the Seahawks or the Patriots this Sunday (or cheering for neither because you’re busy bitterly sulking that the Eagles aren’t in playing), we’ve got you covered with deals from around the city to make your day a culinary success no matter how your team does.

Of course if you’re attending or hosting a Super Bowl party, we’ve got your catering options covered as well.
