Not everyone’s heading to a Super Bowl party to watch the Eagles face the Patriots this Sunday. For those heading to a bar or restaurant to catch it, here are some of the best Food Network-approved spots for game-day worthy grub in the U.S.
- Good Dog Bar and Restaurant, Philadelphia - This place has been around since Prohibition, but the menu is far from old-fashioned. They serve upscale comfort food, with unique dishes like duck confit pot pie.
- DMK Burger Bar, Chicago - Just blocks from Wrigley Field, DMK serves must-try combos like the bison burger with blueberry barbecue sauce and fresh goat cheese. They’ve also got veggie, turkey, and fish options and a huge selection of homemade sodas and shakes.
- Anchor Bar, Buffalo - This upstate New York spot has been known as the “birthplace of the Buffalo wing” since 1964. Theirs are fried naked and tossed in a bourbon-brown sugar barbecue sauce spiked with ancho chiles and honey. Try the “suicidal” heat level, if you dare.
- Claddagh Pub, Baltimore - This watering hole is popular with locals and the city’s mayor recommends their New Zealand rack of lamb, and they have lots of other “upscale Irish cuisine” to choose from.
- Royal Tavern, Philadelphia - Food Network Magazine ranked their Angus Burger one of the top 50 best burgers in the country and regulars love it so much they’ve nicknamed it “The Royal.” Topped with bacon, caramelized onions, smoked Gouda, and pickled hot peppers, it’s perfect for game day.
