Local eateries offered specials throughout the day for parties and smaller groups watching the NFL's biggest contest.

"The Super Bowl is always a big day for us," said Rob Watterson of Nick's Pizza, where many of the pizza and 6 ft. hero orders were called in for between 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. to ensure delivery by game time. "We made  thousand of wings last year, and this year was the same."

Mara's Cafe & Bakery enticed customers to come in for $10 unlimited wings.
