With Super Bowl Sunday approaching, football and fried food fans alike are gearing up to watch the biggest game of the season. Eateries everywhere will celebrate the Super Bowl with parties, specials and giveaways, as well as catered trays for customers to take home and enjoy in their own living room. This year, the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs will battle it out for the Super Bowl LIV title. While neither team is particularly popular among us New Jerseyans, you can still watch the game, laugh at the commercials and, most importantly, eat.
Whether you are in it for the sport or the snacks, here is a list of five New Jersey restaurants going all out for the big game.
Spring Lake Tap House
The Superbowl special menu at Spring Lake Tap House offers personal pizzas, wings and drinks for $5 or less. If you plan to feed a whole crew, try the $60 “pigskin platter” with enough bar-food staples like chicken tenders and mozzarella sticks to serve a little something for everyone. Wash it all down with pitchers, buckets or even towers of beer—all on special. Prefer to watch at home? Check out Spring Lake Tap House’s extensive catering packages to take home. Spring Lake Tap House, 810 Highway 71, Spring Lake Heights; 732-282-1530.
Asbury Ale House Sports Bar & Grill
