If there is one day of the year when sports bars and restaurants don't need specials to get people through their doors, it’s probably Super Bowl Sunday.
That said, here’s a list of specials bars and restaurants are offering to tap into the excitement of Super Bowl LII.
Buffalo Wild Wings
Wings, beer, sports and almost 70 TVs — who needs food and drink specials at B-dubs' two Delmarva locations in Salisbury and Rehoboth?
The Greene Turtle Sports Bar & Grille
This sports bar and restaurant chain's locations in Salisbury and Delaware are offering a $19.99 buffet on Super Bowl Sunday, plus a variety of drink specials.
The two Ocean City locations will also be offering Super Bowl food and drink deals.
The many Grotto's locations have offerings for the big game.
In addition to a two large pizzas for $20 deal, the pizza chain will offer a free mini pitcher (you’ll have to fill it up at home) to people wearing Eagles gear (ages 21 and over).
Also, those wearing a dog mask (a reference to the Eagles’ status as underdogs) will receive a free junior (personal-sized) pizza during the game.
(The mini pitcher and junior pizza promotions do not apply to the smaller location in Bethany Beach.)
