The Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles will vie for the Super Bowl LVII trophy at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on Sunday, February 12 starting at 5:30 p.m. Central Time. While it’s disappointing that the Houston Texans didn’t make it to the Super Bowl, we can take comfort in the fact that Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts is a Houston native, and Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is from Tyler.
Whether you’re watching at home or seeking a bar or restaurant for a more communal environment, Houston not only has plenty of options for both, but some places have special Super Bowl deals, too. This list is conveniently divided into places for watching the game and where to get dishes to get for home parties.
Houston Restaurants & Bars for Watching the Super Bowl
Feges BBQ, 8217 Long Point: The independent, local barbecue joint in Spring Branch is hosting a Super Bowl watch party with specials on wings, barbecue and beer. In addition, Feges BBQ is bringing back its Cracklin’ Nachos for the event. The restaurant is outfitted with a big screen for prime viewing.
Gatsby’s Grill, 2929 Navigation: The newest addition to the Gatsby’s restaurant group sports a spacious indoor bar and outdoor patio, which will be set up for your Super Bowl-watching needs. There are also some enticing drink specials, which include $8 margaritas, $1 or $2 off draft beers, and $3 specials on other select beers.

Henderson Heights Pub, 908 Henderson: This homey bar just off of Washington Avenue sports 22 TVs, so that means plenty of screens for watching the action. (The sound will be on, too.) Expect a party atmosphere with football decor, buckets of craft beer, pitchers of draft beer and five different Game Day Appetizer Samplers that are perfect for groups. Examples include a quesadilla sampler with cheeseburger, Porky The Pig and chicken, bacon and ranch dressing varieties and a bucket of five corn dogs with mustard.
