For the Super Bowl, food is a basic requirement for a good football viewing party at home, especially when it’s the biggest game of the year or if you’re a fan of the half-time show performers Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, and Eminem or just watching for the commercials and movie trailers. This year’s Super Bowl — pairing the Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Rams — takes place later than usual on Sunday, February 13 starting at 5:30 p.m. (which also happens to be the weekend right before Valentine’s Day).
Luckily, Austin restaurants and bars are offering stellar Super Bowl takeout options for those at-home watch parties. From grill-it-yourself meats from Dai Due to football-shaped pies and pigs in blankets from Tiny Pies to chicken wings from Hold Out Brewing to lobster roll kits from Garbo’s, these Austin restaurants will have every Super Bowl party need all squared away. Be sure to place those orders soon.

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.
