The Super Bowl is officially set: New England Patriots versus Los Angeles Rams, Tom Brady versus Jared Goff, Bill Belichick versus Sean McVay, you get the picture. All this means is that it's time to start planning our game day menu. Below, I have compiled my top 5 Sewanee eats for Super Bowl Sunday. The best part? Everything listed is under $15 (and for some, "pub bucks" are an acceptable form of payment), so you won't spend more money on food, than people are spending for Super Bowl tickets (unless you go to these restaurants more than 533 times). And remember, most of these are standard menu items so after the Super Bowl, they will still be available to order, in case you want to try them all. 

5. The Sewanee Inn

Located at:

1235 University Avenue, Sewanee, TN 37375


Sunday 12 pm - 10 pm 

While the Sewanee Inn isn't the first place that comes to mind when I think of game day food, it makes the list for its' unapologetically, Southern dish and convenience factor. The TV at the Shakerag bar also makes for a good view of the game.
