UPDATED: The Dine-In or Take-Out Guide for Super Bowl 2015 in Houston

Whether you're looking for a place showing the Super Bowl or just want to grab food to take to a party, there are plenty of places ready to help. We've divided these up by area of town to help you find something close to your part of town.

Downtown and East Side

El Big Bad, 419 Travis

This two-story, casual joint known for its infused tequilas and homey Mexican food is showing the game on television and big screen projectors. To keep fans energized, there's a special $10 Super Bowl menu that includes wings, ribs and loaded fries. $5 house margaritas are available the entire day and evening. Discounted beer and pitcher specials are offered, too.

8th Wonder Brewery, 2202 Dallas

8th Wonder has a new tasting room decked out Dome-style, so what better place to watch the Super Bowl? Also, what better day for the 2015 release of 8th Wonder's Brewston Pale Ale? Both Feges BBQ and the golden Eastsie Boys food truck will be dishing out the eats. The place can get crowded, so get there early. Noon.

Brennan's of Houston, 3300 Smith Have you ever seen nachos that cost $100? Well, they do when they are topped with an ounce of Petrossian caviar! Brennan's of Houston is having some fun by offering Blue Crab and Caviar Nachos with Fire Roasted Corn, St. Andre Queso, Alligator Pear (avocado), Mirliton Pico de Gallo and Lime Crema--an upscale take on a typical game day snack. The Super Bowl will be playing on the television at the bar or and the "777" happy hour means select appetizers, cocktails, and glasses of wine for $7 each. 2 to 7 p.m.

The Heights

Two Games In One At D&T Drive Inn, 1307 Enid

If one game just isn't enough, aim to watch the Super Bowl at D&T. There, you'll witness chefs from D&T, Down House, and the forthcoming Bernadine's, Hunky Dory and Foreign Correspondents restaurants battle for the title of Chicken Wing Champion. Graham Laborde of Bernadine's will put his Smoked Jerk Sauce with Poblano Ranch to the text, while chef Benji Masson will attempt to battle back with Lemon Drop Pepper Hot Sauce. That's just two of many that will be around to try. 12 wings will put you back just $10. There will be New England and Washington beer flights to choose from as well. The wing throwdown starts at 4 p.m.

The El Cantina Superior, 602 Studewood

If you haven't been over to El Cantina Superior lately, visit again, as it's under new management and there's been a complete menu changeover with excellent results. The top recommended item for takeout is the Nine Layer Dip. Sure, a classic recipe to make at home, but when was the last time you were able to just buy it from a restaurant and take it to-go? 832-203-5180.

The Chicken Ranch, 6500 N. Main

The little chicken shack on North Main is making it as easy as can be to place an order. All you have to do is text them what you want and when you want to pick up on Sunday.
