Back at the beginning of this season, Eater rounded up team bars in Philly, and found that Smiths is the official hang for a sizable group of Pats fans. So if you're hoping to watch the game surrounded by New England fans, this is your best bet. (Or check that map for plenty of other solid sports bars you might want to check out instead — sadly, our research never turned up any dedicated Seahawks bars.)

2. Di Bruno Bros.

DiBruno Bros. always has a massive array of game-day catering options, from smaller a la carte options to fully loaded feasts featuring hoagies, wings, roast pork or meatball sandwiches, and pretty much anything else you could dream up. (Full buffets for up to 8 people go for $195-$225 depending on what you pick; customizable options range from $15 for a soft pretzel tray to $190 for an impressive six-foot hoagie.) For the Super Bowl, however, they've come up with a couple of themed packages: for Seattle, there's a coffee- and coriander-rubbed salmon taco kit, and for New England, a mini lobster roll kit. Orders must be placed by noon on Friday, January 30; pick-up options include their Rittenhouse, Franklin, or Ardmore locations. Here's the full menu and all the details.

3. Serpico

You can order wings for your Super Bowl party just about anywhere, but the only place you can get chef Peter Serpico's killer Korean fried chicken wings is at his eponymous South Street restaurant.

Visit Website
Thanks to new delivery service Caviar, you can order up a bucket of Kevin Sbraga's famous hot chicken for your Super Bowl party this year. OK, to be fair, we can't guarantee it'll arrive in a bucket, but you will get twelve pieces of the spicy fried chicken and all the crucial sides, delivered, for $100. (Sides include mac and cheese, collard greens, pimento cheese, and all the ranch dressing, bread, and pickles you need to dress up your chicken.) Pre-order here, at least 48 hours in advance.

5. Wursthaus Schmitz

For $5 per order, you can choose from Port Richmond tots (with sauerkraut, kielbasa, and spicy mustard), pizza tots (marinara and mozzarella), or chili tots (beef and bean chili). Select drafts will also be half-off throughout the game, though, so you might want to use those savings to just get all the tots.
