If you’re serious about Super Bowl Sunday and already making plans, here’s an event you won’t want to miss. Salty Sow and Roaring Fork have teamed up to offer you dinner on the house the night of the big game, February 1.

Even the biggest sports fan has to admit that food from a sports bar can be pretty dreary. At Cover 3, you don’t have to choose between a delicious meal or the big game. This upscale dining spot recently added a downtown location to its roster and invited us to check it out.

These days, the Austin pizza scene is ever growing and now includes Las Vegas import Due Forni.

Dine Big for the Super Bowl

No matter which team you’re rooting for on Sunday, it’s always more fun to watch it with a crowd. Even if you’re not into sports, it’s a good excuse for a night out! If you don’t already have plans, here are our choices for places to dine on Super Bowl Sunday.


Celebrate American athleticism by eating everything on a donut at Gourdough's.

Gourdough’s Public House

What better way to celebrate American athleticism than by digging into decadent donuts? Gourdough’s Public House is currently selling tickets for reservations at both the original Lamar location and the new West 6th Street spot. Sure you have to shell out a few bucks for a table, but you’ll also be getting a free round of wings to get you started. Both locations also have 6 TVs indoors and 8 outside in the biergarten. We recommend grabbing an Ode to the Trailer (an updated Frito Pie) to share and a Drunken Hunk (Bacon wrapped meatloaf, a potato pancake, and fried egg served on top of a donut) for yourself. Go big or go home, right?

 Cover 3 

There are plenty of screens to watch at Cover 3.

While there’s plenty of TVs to catch every play, at Cover 3 you can get craft cocktails and upscale food. Perfect if you’re more of an eater than a sports fan. If you think this is where you’d like to park it, you’ll definitely want to make a reservation. With the opening of the new downtown location, there are even more tables available. Try sharing an order of chicken tinga nachos and then digging into one of our favorites, the brick chicken mac and cheese.

Due Forni

Due Forni is a trendy downtown pizza spot and not your typical choice for game night. They don’t even have TVs, but hear us out. They do project Spaghetti Westerns on the walls and on Sunday they’ll be projecting the Super Bowl instead. Plus, pizza is a great shareable meal and these neapolitan style pies are a rarity in Austin. You can also choose from a few pasta dishes and salads.  

Which restaurant do you plan on watching the game at?
