The big game against the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is going to be another big sporting event that will look different due to the pandemic. One thing that will remain the same, though, is the eclectic food spreads at home. If you aren’t a huge football fan, the snacks are what’s really important.
When planning out your snack line-up for the super bowl this weekend, look to Metro-Detroit restaurants like Penny Red’s, Bobcat Bonnie’s, City Wings and more for the best ways to fill up on nachos, wings, pizza, beer and high-calorie comfort food. And a major plus to keep in mind? Detroiters can get cocktails to go. Keep that in mind when placing an order!

BUFFALO WILD WINGS
Place an order for wings to eat during the game – or see how the game plays out and (possibly) get free wings on February 22! According to the press release stating “OT almost happened last year. The game was tied going into the fourth quarter, and America was 15 minutes away from winning free wings – but then the GOAT did his thing and mounted a touchdown drive to unknot the game. So we’re running it back this year: if the Big Game goes to overtime, Buffalo Wild Wings is giving everyone in America free wings” be on the lookout for overtime!
