While, sure, Super Bowl Sunday is supposed to be about football, it is also all about indulging in food and drink. Austin’s bars and restaurants are as excited for the big sports occasion, rooting for either the Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Rams, by hosting parties and offering game day food and drink specials.

Prep for a full day of football and eating while taking your pick from any of these Super Bowl watch parties, like chicken wings and beers at Hold Out Brewing, the Bengals watch party at the Dogwood, an all-you-can-eat buffet at Jester King, and more.

Super Bowl LVI and everything below takes place on Sunday, February 13 (which also happens to be the day before Valentine’s Day), with kick-off beginning at 5:30 p.m. For those looking to keep the party at home, here’s a guide on the best Super Bowl takeout available, and for other options, check out the city’s chicken wings and barbecue

As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Be sure to wear a mask, tip well, and, if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the restaurants themselves.

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; it may pose a risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial COVID transmission. The latest CDC guidance is here; find a COVID-19 vaccination site here.
