OK we all know the HarBowl (err… Super Bowl) is right around the corner. But why cook when you can just as easily have your feast catered? After all, unless you're a 49ers or Ravens fan, the Super Bowl's all about watching funny commercials and pigging out. Football is secondary. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the pre-game festivities, because these five spots are catering all types of delicious eats on Super Bowl Sunday. Better bring your appetite.
Hooters: People who have never eaten at Hooters may associate it as "that place with the scantily clad waitresses." That may be somewhat true, but if there's one thing Hooters knows how to do well, it's chicken wings. Flavors range from mild to the extra spicy 911, and all orders come with plenty of blue cheese and ranch dressing for dipping. Because who doesn't love freebies? Wings come breaded, but those trying to watch their figure can also request them naked. Stock up on a 100 wings for Sunday's game, with a side of their famous fried pickles. Never had fried pickles before? Well, there's a first time for everything.

Hot Wings Cafe: Located on Melrose Avenue (of all places), Hot Wings Cafe is the spot you go to on gameday. Not only are their hot wings consistently ranked the best in town, but they've also got plenty of flat screen TVs for watching sports, as well as a long list of beers and wines. But as we all know, the Super Bowl is usually watched at a house with friends. That being said, if you plan on hosting a party, Hot Wings Cafe has just about everything you'll need, including all types of sides, like curly fries and mozzarella sticks, along with an enormous 50-piece wing platter. Their wings come in all types of flavors too, like lemon pepper, BBQ, mild, hot and extra hot. Order your Super Bowl feast online by visiting www.hotwingscafeinhollywood.com.

Baby Blues: Since the Big Game is in New Orleans this year, why not make you're eating experience legit with some authentic Southern-style cooking? Baby Blues may call itself a "hybrid" barbeque joint, specializing in ribs and rubs from all over the country. But any place that specializes in Memphis-style pork ribs, beef brisket, and a sweet and tangy sauce, is about as Southern as that familiar good ‘ol boy with the last name Clinton (perhaps, you've heard of him?) On game day, you can't go wrong with their famous "Elvis in the Building" barbeque package. It comes with chicken, Memphis-style and baby back ribs, pulled pork, beef brisket, and up to four sides. It's a meal fit for a king… and about 10 of his servants.

Big Mama's and Papa's Pizzeria: What separates Big Mama's and Papa's from the other pizza joints in town? How about a massive, 36-inch pizza with your choice of any of their toppings, from sausage and pepperoni, to jumbo shrimp and BBQ chicken? That's right, Big Mama's and Papa's makes quite possibly the largest pizza in L.A. – if not the state – with enough to feed a small army of guests. Seriously, you're going to need extra table space if you plan on ordering the 36-incher, along with an extra wide door to get it in. Aside from pizza, Big Mama's also has sandwiches, burgers, pastas, calzones, appetizers, desserts, and salads. You can place your order online by visiting www.bigmamaspizza.com.

Dan's Super Subs: Forget those six-inch snacks at Subway. At Dan's Super Subs in Woodland Hills they make sandwiches fit for a Super Bowl-sized appetite! Their six-foot party sub feeds 25 and comes packed with assorted fresh meats, cheeses, and veggies. Traditional sides include chips, macaroni salad and cole slaw, and all of Dan's famous subs are warmed up in a pressure steamer prior to delivery. Other subs that Dan's offers include the Flying Dutchman, which feeds eight people, as well as a 24-inch Italian sub called the Mamma Mia. That one also feeds eight.
