5. Christie’s Sports Bar

Christie’s large TV screens, game-day drink specials, and bar snacks will be a great place to spend Super Bowl Sunday, but if you’re planning to bring a big party of 10 or more make sure to make a reservation.

6. The Nodding Donkey

Aside from this popular sports bar and grills amazing drink specials, the restaurant will be featuring the game on every flat screen TV in the house. Besides their highly recommended appetizers and snacks, the Nodding Donkey Want also has giant Jenga, Connect 4, and beer pong to keep you interested and engaged.

If none of these seem like the right place to beat out your best friends couch and endless drink supply feel free to go to the closest Hooters, Buffalo Wild Wings or if your in the Denton area check out Lucky Lou’s sports bar or East Side’s rustic bar.
