Theis darn near upon us, people. Whether you're hopping on the Rams bandwagon or pulling for the underdog Bengals, we can all generally agree that having good eats is the most important thing on any given Super Bowl Sunday. If you're looking to amp things up a bit from that "signature" chili you make every year, there are some super foods that'll bowl everyone over and make your Sunday prep a breeze.
The online eats you'll find below require very little work on the part of the host, and best of all, they'll be delivered right to your door which is definitely extra handy these days. Grocery shopping has been anything but predictable lately and ordering what you need beforehand will ensure that you've got all the goods to put out a crowd-pleasing roster of football favorites.
Just follow this game plan below and scan our favorite online food and drink vendors for the easiest game-day spread ever.
Note that at the time of writing, all purveyors had express shipping options available to ensure timely delivery before Super Bowl Sunday. Please make sure to check with the individual vendor before placing an order.
Having Shake Shack at your watch party is the perfect way to stick it to any In-N-Out scarfing Los Angeles Rams fans. If you love the Shack but don't love waiting in the lines, Goldbelly has a perfect fix with this 16-burger kit you can get delivered for $89. That should be plenty of Pat Lafrieda beef, potato rolls and Shack Sauce to feed your game day crew.
In case you're wondering, the meat comes uncooked (that's a good thing, trust me) so you'll need a big cast-iron skillet or griddle if you want to replicate Shake Shack's cooking style. An outdoor grill works fine, too.
Seeing as Kansas City is back in the Super Bowl, it'd be fitting to serve up some authentic KC-style BBQ. Goldbelly allows you to order sauce-soaked eats from some of the most iconic BBQ joints in Missouri, and many will still arrive before this weekend. We're especially digging the KC Sunday Dinner package from Jack Stack BBQ, which serves four to six people with baby back ribs, pork burnt ends, beef burnt ends, hickory pit beans, cheesy potato bake, Jack Stack barbecue sauce and a triple chocolate brownie.
If you order it today, Goldbelly can deliver it by Friday.
Or just go whole-hog and lay out a pile of succulent pulled pork for sandwiches, nachos or just to eat with a fork. You can snag enough pulled pork from Jones' Bar-B-Q in Arkansas to feed four to six people for $79 and have it delivered by Friday.
Wings are an undisputed Super Bowl star. You can keep things simple and throw them in the oven with a salt and pepper rub or crank up the heat with a classic Buffalo treatment.
Get 5 pounds of quality Wild Fork Foods frozen chicken wings for just $13. Or grab a 2.5-pound order of organic wings for $10. Plan on about a pound of wings per person, especially if they are the main dish. Wild Fork has cooked wings too if you don't feel like busting out the air fryer.
Old-school butcher Schaller & Weber has been a New York institution for over eight decades and its house-made sausages have become the stuff of legend. You can't go wrong with the classics, but for the biggest sports day of the year you'll want something extra special and these juicy pork bratwursts made with German lager courtesy of Mikkeller NYC would certainly earn the approval of Bill Swerski and his fellow Super Fans.
Mouth charges $12 for shipping so you might want to tack on a few extra packages of brats or any of the other hundreds of tasty eats available on this sprawling vendor.
This Super Bowl-ready Man Crate will take care of appetizers while the chili or pulled chicken finishes in the crock pot. The sampler includes three six-ounce sausages: rabbit, venison and pork, venison and pork and pheasant and pork. Plus two Terrapin Ridge mustards, Cooper's jalapeño cheese straws and an Opinel No. 7 folding knife.
New York may not be in the Super Bowl but its pizza should definitely be at your Super Bowl party. Joe's is one of those iconic NYC pizza joints that in normal times has a one- or two-block line out the door, but you can get those tasty thin-crust pies delivered in time for the game through Goldbelly. No line-waiting required.
If you're not the beer-and-nachos type and are looking for a more refined game day experience, may I introduce you to this charcuterie sampler from D'Artagnan? It has six salty and savory pregame snacks including dry-cured pork and duck sausages, French garlic sausage, smoked chicken breast, duck rillette and black truffle butter.
Who's going to take home the Lombardi Trophy this year is anyone's guess, but serving nachos at your watch party is a sure bet, especially if they're courtesy of Memphis BBQ legend Charlie Vergos' Rendezvous. Beyond the chips, cheese dip and pickled jalapenos, this cheat day-worthy package that serves 14-16 people is highlighted by two pounds of the restaurant's famous pulled pork shoulder, along with its signature barbecue sauce and seasoning blend (napkins, however, are not included). The fully loaded spread is guaranteed to have your guests all shook up.
