Where to Dine In or Take Out on Super Bowl Sunday

Yeah, the New England Patriots aren’t competing in this year’s Super Bowl, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t eat (and drink) like champions. Where to dine in or take-out on Sunday, straight ahead.

Dine In:
Here’s where you’ll find throngs of displaced Steelers fans rooting for their chosen team. Good beer selection, student-y crowd, and an array of specialty pizzas. Heckle and drink with abandon!

The Banshee
This Dorchester pub has 12 high-def televisions, and under normal circumstances, it’s a great year-round soccer bar. It’s also where Packers fans have been known to congregate. Get there early.

Canary Square
Visit the newish JP tavern for jerk wings, beef jerky, and other pubbish snacks. They’re also selling 100 Super Bowl squares for $5 each and donating the proceeds to charity Neighbors for Neighbors.

Church is doing a fun $7 slider special, featuring buffalo chicken, beef sliders with gorgonzola and truffle aioli, and pulled pork; they’ll also have $5 drink specials.

They’ll offer $6 appetizers from their bar menu all night including their signature prime burger, sweet chile calamari, and jumbo shrimp cocktail.

Poe’s Kitchen at the Rattlesnake
We told you all about their pre-game Burrito Bowl, in which various Boston chefs will compete to make their favorite team-themed burrito. Visit Poe’s the following day for the actual Super Bowl, and enjoy the winning burrito for $10.

Take Out:
Bakers’ Best has an extensive Game Day 2011 menu, complete with deviled eggs, quesadillas, pizzas, chips, dips, sliders, and even Whoopie pies. They need 48 hours notice to prepare your order.

Visit Formaggio Kitchen on Saturday to snag pulled meats, ribs, and sides for take-out. (They’ll be grilling outside; hopefully it stops snowing by then.) They’ll also have a beer-tasting inside featuring game-friendly swills.

Flour’s offering a special game day menu for takeaway; order by tomorrow and pick up on Saturday or Sunday. Wow your guests with pan-seared chicken wings, homemade guacamole, bacon-wrapped shrimp, and more.

We can always count on Redbones to deliver on game day. (Well, their Super Bowl menu is actually available for pick-up, but you get the point.) Call the restaurant by Saturday with your order. They’ll have pork ribs, beef ribs, mac and cheese, brisket … all the artery-busting goodies you crave! Also, their downstairs restaurant, Underbones, will be tuned to the game.
