It's Almost Game Day: DC's 7 Best Super Bowl Takeout Options

By Abby Dupes | February 4, 2021 | Food & Drink

Nachos from Mi Vida

Score a tastebud-touchdown by ordering from these local eateries on Super Bowl Sunday.

Mi Vida

For a Mexican twist on classic Super Bowl snacks like wings and chips, swing by Mi Vida. Partner the adobo-rubbed spicy chicken wings with build-your-own nachos for the perfect duo. Finish off the package with the make-your-own mezcal margarita kit—great for toasting the winning team, well, assuming you’re rooting for either the Bucs or the Chiefs.

Gonzo at Astoria

During the pandemic, chef Nicholas Olivas opened Gonzo: a Mexican, West Coast-inspired pop-up restaurant. For Sunday’s big game, football fans can find them at Dupont Circle's Astoria, where they’ll serve up carnitas tacos and churros for takeout.

Founding Farmers

Let Founding Farmers take care of the cooking while you watch the big game and hang out with your pandemic pod. On the menu, you’ll find fan-favorite snacks like mini soft pretzels and chicken tenders, as well as classics like a hot dog bar and a BBQ platter.

Nobu DC

If you’ve grown tired of the same big-day-bites, serve up sushi from the renowned Japanese restaurant, Nobu DC. Grab the sushi-to-share box with salmon, tuna, yellowtail, snow crab and California rolls.


Drink lovers rejoice, Bresca has you covered this Sunday. The resto’s “Memories of Greatness” punch—made with J Rieger Kansas City whiskey, Ten to One dark rum, sercial madeira, oolong tea syrup and house bitters—will have you dancing in the endzone by the fourth quarter. Virtually, of course.

Hank's Oyster Bar

Gear up for game day with a hearty seafood spread from Hank’s Oyster Bar. Think crab cake sliders, bacon-wrapped jumbo shrimp, Eastern Shore crab dip with tortilla chips and oysters on the half shell.

Alfredo’s Italia at Bread Furst

The bustling Van Ness bakery is rolling out something special for Super Bowl Sunday: a pop-up shop featuring Philly cheesesteaks with housemade rolls, wings, nachos and pizzas inspired by famous figures from history.
