Super Bowl Sunday has become a national holiday, and great food is a must, even for mellower viewing plans. During the pandemic, health officials are discouraging people from hosting gatherings. And even as restaurants and bars resume limited dining in phase two of Washington’s reopening plan, takeout is still prevalent in Seattle. Here are some of the top options around the city for the big game between the Chiefs and Bucs (game time scheduled for 3:30 p.m. PT February 7 on CBS), with locations listed from west to east.

Though all the restaurants and bars on the list offer takeout, a number have resumed limited outdoor or dine-in service as well, per current guidelines. The level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the King County’s COVID update page. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.

In anticipation for the Sunday rush, Magnolia’s Lebanese restaurant has opened up pre-orders on a selection of a la carte snackable items, including beef kafta Meatballs with tzatziki, twice baked potatoes with labneh, za’atar popcorn, and other dips and pita chips. Details are on Tock.

Chef Eric Rivera is a huge sports fan, and typically brings the heat for game days. This year, the Super Bowl package features wings, baby back ribs, 7-layer dip, Sazon plantain chips, a Cubanos sandwich kit, and a 12-pack of Rainier, along with an array of sides and sauces. There are also wings a la carte on the Addo 206 menu.

Windy City Pie

The popular Chicago-style pizza purveyor — known for its crispy caramelized crust —features satisfying pies such as the Mamma Mia, topped with roasted garlic, meatballs, and sport pepper. Best to get those orders in early, though (the website lets customers select a date), since Sunday will likely be slammed. Those in South Seattle can try sibling restaurant Breezy Town.

Katsu Burger

With multiple locations around the city and surrounding areas, the popular fast-casual chain serves a slew of panko-breaded, deep-fried meats for its burgers. While beef, chicken, and even tofu are options, pork is the classic way to go, fantastic with mayo and tonkatsu sauce. Add nori fries and green tea milkshakes to wash it all down. All outposts feature takeout.

Linda's Tavern

Copy Link

The Capitol Hill dive has some cook-at-home nachos, with salsa and pickled jalapeños, beans, and sour cream. Drinks include bottled old fashioneds and Boulevardiers, with Jell-O shots for those who don’t have work the next morning, and there are growlers of beers on tap for takeout. Call ahead at (206) 325-1220 to place orders in advance; walk-ins accepted as well.

Crawfish King

Copy Link

The International District’s Viet-Cajun restaurant has $55 Super Bowl platters available for takeout. They include fried snow crab claws, crawfish (naturally), scallops, popcorn shimp (and chicken), plus “lots” of Cajun fries and sauces. Ordering available via Chownow.

The fancy Capitol Hill restaurant from chef John Sundstrom is all about pub fare for the Super Bowl. That means Wisconsin cheese curds, brats, chili, Kansas City barbecue pork ribs, and Buffalo wings in one big package, with chocolate chip and snickerdoodle cookies for dessert. Ordering available via Tock.

Carnitas Michoacan

Copy Link

This is one of South Seattle’s top destinations for an array of wonderful tacos at wallet-friendly prices. At the neighboring butcher shop, there are lots of prime cuts and the tortillas are also available to take home, for those who want to do sort of a DIY taco bar. Make sure to swing by the sauce bar to stock up.

Wood Shop BBQ

Copy Link

Owners Matt Davis and James Barrington bring flavors from their Texas and Kansas childhoods to the masses with meat that’s hickory-smoked in a custom Texas-built smoker named Brad Pit. Must-have sides include the mac and cheese topped with 12-hour pulled pork and jalapeño cornbread. Takeout available via Chownow.

Stan's Bar-B-Q

This Issaquah spot is one of the best (only?) Chiefs bars in the area, which some fans consider “Arrowhead West.” The barbecue is also Kansas City-level good, with brisket, baby back ribs, hot links, and smoked turkey served by the pound with an array of satisfying sides. Best to call ahead, since takeout orders will likely go fast. And there’s now limited indoor dining.
