Super Bowl Food Deals 2021: Where to Get Free and Cheap Food Today

Even if you’re watching alone, it’s still good to have a spread.

The Super Bowl is going to look quite different this year. Tom Brady is in the game and, uh, wait, I mean, Patrick Mahomes is in the game… Oh. Or, the game is going to be in Tampa for the… uh… fifth time?

Okay. Well, you know, people are going to be doing different stuff, like eating millions of chicken wings and ordering pizza like it’ll all be gone tomorrow. Whatever. There’s going to be a lot about this Super Bowl that’s familiar, even if it’s taking place in the middle of a pandemic. You’re going to want a big spread, even if you’re watching the game from home this year. Naturally, restaurants across the country look at the game as a food holiday and are offering loads of discounts and deals that will draw you to their restaurant. You’ll find deals from Applebee’s, McDonald’s, and dozens of other places.
