It’s finally here; the one day of the year where everyone and their mother is a diehard football fan. Super Bowl 50, our nation’s unsung holiday, is this Sunday. If you’ve got the biggest flat screen in your group of football fanatics, you’ll be expected to host a party worthy of the celebration. And, if you’re like me, you’ve been putting off getting food for your awesome party until the last possible moment.
But this year is different. Our fellow football fans deserve better than greasy pizza and cheap beer. After all, there are no losers allowed in Super Bowl 50, so why buy the standard poker-night food for the game of the half-century? This year, why not treat your partygoers to some food that’s actually worth eating?
Plan the perfect party with these terrific food delivery services worthy of your Sunday feasting festivities, so you can dine like kings before the coin flips.
Apps That Deliver The Full Nine Yards
GrubHub – When you need food fast, GrubHub offers a straightforward system that’s easy to use. Just type in your address and you’ll be given a list of nearby restaurants. Pick what you want to eat and they’ll bring it straight to your front door. With a fantastic list of filters including pricing and delivery estimates, it’s easy to find what you’re craving and order it fast. Place your order an hour before your party and have all the food you need by game time. Worried about the delivery bill? You can switch your order to “pickup” with ease and grab it yourself.
Foodler – Foodler is another amazing app that’ll save you from doing a food run during halftime. Serving over 4,182 cities, Foodler lets you pick out what food you want and delivers at no extra cost! Type in your address, browse their full menus, and place your order! Done. You won’t even miss one commercial. Better yet, you can pay with credit, cash, or Bitcoin. Foodler isn’t everywhere yet, so make sure you have a backup plan if it doesn’t serve your area.
Those apps are great if Sunday morning comes around and you still haven’t prepped for the pre-game munchies. But, in honor of fifty years of football madness, let’s turn it up a notch and get some classy cuisine for our rabid revelers.
