The Cincinnati Bengals face off against the Los Angeles Rams for Super Bowl LVI on Sunday, February 13. Even if the celebrations look different than in previous years, the menu should still be plentiful and hearty enough to last through pregame parties, the halftime show, and any postgame festivities.

While restaurants won’t be packed to the brim with screaming fans, they aren’t skimping on spreads to cater to at-home celebrations. From traditional fare like nachos and barbecue to offbeat options for Italian and French, here are takeout specials to meet all game day needs.

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; it may pose a risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial COVID transmission.
