Where to Get Great Takeout for the Super Bowl

We all know the best part of the Big Game is the food, right?

We’ve cheered for our teams. We’ve stayed up way too late on Sundays. And for some of us, dedicated fandom has paid off. That’s right: I’m talking about Super Bowl LVII coming at us on Sunday, Feb. 12. In a face-off between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs, there can only be one winner.

OK, but real talk. I know next to nothing about sports, aside from SEC football (go Gators). What I do know is that the Super Bowl means snacks. So many snacks. So much food. So happy. If you’re the kind of person who throws a big party for your friends every year, I’m sure you have your menu planned. But for those of you who aren’t hosting or want to keep things small this year, I’ve put together a list of some great places to get takeout to celebrate all things Super Bowl.

Food + Beer


With five convenient locations around the Sarasota-Manatee area and a menu full of munchables, Food + Beer is an obvious choice. Tuck into a giant Bavarian pretzel or homestyle nuggets for finger food that won't distract you from the game. For Eagles fans, there's a Philly-style cheesesteak called "The Jawn" to give you a taste of home.

Origin Craft Beer & Pizza Café


Origin Pizza Café boasts several locations around the area for maximum access to football-friendly food. Pizzas with an assortment of creative toppings dominate the menu. But we're here for the wings. They are huge, well-seasoned and the juiciest in town. Don't forget the extra napkins.

Reyna's Taqueria

935 N. Beneva Road, Sarasota, (941) 260-8343; 8201 S. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota (941) 271-4624, reynastaqueria.com

Hear me out: I want a big box of tacos while watching a football game. Tacos are a perfect football food, handheld, customizable, heartburn-inducing. At Reyna's, the tortillas are fresh-made and the salsa steals the show. Throw in some street corn for good measure.

Solorzano Bros

3604 Webber St., Sarasota, (941) 927-4992, solorzanobros.com

Not to be confused with other pizzerias of a similar name, at the Solorzano Bros on Webber Street, I like the centrello pizza (white pizza with onions, spinach, tomatoes and basil), but I would never tell you how to order your favorite pie.

Tsunami Sushi & Hibachi

100 Central Ave., #1022, Sarasota. (941) 366-1033, tsunami-sarasota.com

I know no one thinks of sushi when they think of football, but Tsunami's takeout game is on point. Why not switch up your order this year? If sushi isn't your game, Tsunami has great appetizers like chicken tatsu-age (thin pieces of fried chicken served with spicy mayo) or gyoza.

Brick's Smoked Meats

1528 State St., Sarasota, (941) 993-1435, brickssmokedmeats.com

I had to throw in some barbecue for the Chiefs fans out there. While Brick's skews Texas-style, you can still get a mean rack of ribs. Bust out your favorite barbecue sauce or try something new. And don't forget the sides. The pimiento mac 'n cheese is the stuff of dreams.

Clarabell Cookies

2661 Mall Dr., Sarasota, clarabellcookies.com

Don't forget dessert. Swing by Clarabell Cookies in Gulf Gate to find out why I think these are the best cookies in town. Opt for an assortment so you can try all the different types they offer. Calories don't count on Super Bowl Sunday.
