There's no getting around the fact that the food consumed the night of February 2 is every bit as important as the actual game being played. Whether your flying solo or hosting a party, there are absolutely essential foods for any Super Bowl party. 

You are more than welcome to go all-in and make dip, buffalo wings, tater skins, sliders... and everything else people expect while watching football. Your party will be way better because of it. However, that's pretty damn time-consuming. The alternative is to take advantage of the loads of food deals available on Super Bowl Sunday. Restaurants in just about every US city are offering deals to make your Super Bowl viewing experience both delicious and stress-free. You'll find deals from Buffalo Wild Wings, Hooters, Olive Garden, and many other restaurants. (If you're looking for the best Super Bowl pizza deals, we've got those in a totally separate post because there are so many of them.)

To keep things easy on a busy day, we've collected the best food deals available for the Super Bowl. You're going to have to bring your own paper towels and/or Hunger Harness, though.
