Atlanta has been abuzz about the big game for years, and we cannot believe it’s finally here! In just a few short days we’ll welcome one of the biggest sporting events of the year to our area. Local bars and restaurants are pulling out all the stops while the city itself braces for sports analysts, big-time celebrities, football fanatics, and of course, all the locals who are headed to Mercedes-Benz, too. There are tons of events, happenings, places to watch, and food to eat, but we’re breaking down a few of the most frequently asked questions right here. From where to watch to how to get there, you’ll learn our recommendations with plenty of time before kick-off!
Where to find Big Game eats: Mom’s Table, Roswell
Hosting a crowd but don’t want the cooking clean-up (or the pressure)? Look no further than Mom’s Table. Located right on Canton Street in Roswell, Mom’s Table offers tons of ready made meals for all of your needs. There, you can find everything from Cranberry-Pecan Chicken Salad to banana pudding, but the real rowdy crowd pleaser is the Brunswick Stew. Pick-up a few pints (along with cornbread of course), and serve it up piping hot with a bevy of fun toppings. Keep your eye on Mom’s Table’s Facebook page for even more Big Game treats especially for the event. Last year’s menu included not-so-sloppy-Joes and buffalo chicken dip!
The Pre-Game Event you Shouldn’t Miss: Super Bowl Experience, Georgia World Congress Center
Self-described as an interactive NFL theme park, 2019’s pre-game experience is sure to be fun for kids of all ages. For one week leading up to the game, visitors can immerse themselves in interactive games, snap selfies with the Vince Lombardi Trophy, mingle with NFL legends, see (and shop) memorabilia, and even experience what it’s like to train as a professional football player. Tickets are $20 and Monday, January 28 through Wednesday, January 30, the purchase of one adult ticket can get you up to 3 children’s tickets for free! Find all the details here.
How to Get to the Game: MARTA from North Springs
If you’re among the lucky ones who will be within the stadium walls for all of the hoopla, we have one word for you when it comes to transportation: MARTA. Our MARTA system may not always be the most convenient resource, but when it comes to huge area events, it’s definitely something to consider. Lucky for north metro-Atlanta residents, the North Springs MARTA station is nearby. Simply park and let the train whisk you into the thick of it all!
Where to Watch the Game: Houck’s Grille & Loyal Tavern
On the flipside, if you’re not attending in the stadium, but are still seeking a thrilling viewing party, we cannot recommend a few area restaurants enough. First, is new comer Loyal Tavern. Bountiful booths and plentiful televisions make this spot an ideal place to catch everything from the National Anthem to the trophy presentation. The menu is simple, and the food is perfect. Burgers and wings? Sounds like gridiron menu gold to us. Our other recommendation is Houck’s Grille, a local favorite since 1986. With a family friendly atmosphere, Houck’s is hard to beat for a Big Game shindig for all ages. One tip: make a reservation ahead of time, so you have a guaranteed seat!
The convenience of our area makes historic events like these even better. If you’re looking to move to the north Atlanta suburbs, let us know. The Wright-Clinkscales Team can help you find your new home with plenty of time for next year’s gridiron match up. Cheers to the Big Game and may the best team win!
