The 2020 NFL football season will likely go down in history as one of the strangest, most stressful seasons on record. From the mostly empty stadiums, to the bevy of last-minute game cancellations due to positive COVID-19 test results, it was a season rife with uncertainty.
But some things remain unchanged (Tom Brady being on the roster for Sunday’s game among them), and that includes the tradition of using the game as a perfect excuse for loosening the belt and packing in some game-day grub.
Here’s a look at some local restaurants offering special deals for the game.
Take-home meal kits include chips, guac, salsa duo, queso dip with chorizo, and 12 Valentina wings for $34, with a 6-pack of Mexican beer or Jarritos for an extra $10.
