Tyler Tx, (KETK) — Super Bowl Sunday is coming up! And where are you going to be watching the big game? There are a lot of sports bars and restaurants you can hit up on Sunday.
Sports Zone downtown, Clicks, Buffalo Wild Wings and a lot of these places have great Super Bowl specials. But, the majority of East Texans that we talked to are going to watch the game at home.
"At home. Great big TV, I got my kitchen close by, I got my cocktail bar close by and I'm ready to go."
"At home in my den."
"At a friends house."
"At my best friends house. She has a few of us over every year."
So, a lot of people will be staying put for the game. These East Texans tell KETK they would rather stay at home to avoid the bar crowds and of course if there is drinking involved they don't have to drive.
And a lot of these people will order out. Texas Roadhouse tells us 30% of their business on Super Bowl Sunday is take out orders.
"People like our ribs. You can cut them into two or three bones they make good rib sample platters. All of our appetizers, boneless wings potato skins, homemade rattle snack bites," said Executive Partner Dave Deffenbaugh.
But, others like cheering on their favorite team at sports bars. And lots of them have Super Bowl specials like Clicks. With, 13 TVs, and lots of Super bowl specials, the bar attracts about 150 people every year.
"This year, we're doing a bunch of drink specials, 50 cent wings stuff to bring people out and have a good time," said Clicks Manager Drew Massey.
