For many of us, the truth is Super Bowl Sunday is as much about where and what to eat as it is about the game itself. As the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos gear up for tackles and touchdowns, the only fumble we're concerned about is squandering one of the year's great gustatory opportunities. Lucky for us, many Houston restaurants and bars are taking on the challenge of hosting Super Bowl parties featuring mouthwatering game day food and drink specials. Below are a few of the most delicious destinations at which to huddle up with your team .
