This Sunday is a favorite day for the Food Adventure Crew because it involves some of our favorite things… Parties, Foods and Drinks!
Super Bowl Sunday is this week, and many people will find themselves enjoying, or being dragged to a party of some sort. Others will stay home, and yet more will go do something entirely unrelated to the big game.
But this traditional weekend has developed more and more into a food fest.
So let’s say you have decided to venture out and about Dayton for the big game.
Considering comfortably, food, crowds and TV locations, we have come up with a few of the BEST places to eat and watch the game …..
THE 10 BEST RESTAURANTS IN DAYTON TO WATCH THE SUPERBOWL:
1) WINGS & RINGS in CENTERVILLE:
The place has the best TV’s, incredible hand breaded chicken tenders, and is NEVER crowded. This is a PERFECT secret place to watch the game. We don’t understand why this place isn’t packed constantly. Prices are lower than BW3 and the craft beer choices are great. This is THE biggest secret in where to watch sporting events in the Dayton area.
894 S. Main Street, C, Centerville, OH 45458
2) LOCK 27 BREWING COMPANY – CENTERVILLE:
Again, sit at the bar and you have the HUGE HD TV’S practically to yourself… oh and you have an entire brewing facility at your fingertips with the gastro-pub food that makes this place so special. Good Eats, Good drinks, Big TV’s and not wall to wall crowds of screaming fans. Try the smoked wings and cheese plate, with a Whipple Tree Beer.
1035 S Main St, Centerville, OH 45458
3) SUBMARINE HOUSE in BEAVERCREEK:
The Beavercreek location has all the TV’s you need, but not an overfilled atmosphere. The food and beer selection is top notch. Get an Ohio beer and a half Super Duper Cheesesteak with the works. This should hold you ’til halftime.
3195 Dayton Xenia Rd, Beavercreek, OH 45434
4) ELSA’S BAR DINING AREA in CENTERVILLE:
In the bar area, there is a big projection screen and a half-dozen flat screens around. Time for some Bad Juan’s and Jamaica Jerk Wings. Try the crunchy beef tacos too. Endless popcorn with endless nacho chips.. you will be in football heaven.
6318 Far Hills Ave, Dayton, OH 45459
5) BENNETT’S PUBLICAL in MIAMISBURG:
Perfect spot for good TV views and great food. They have a nice craft beer selection too. This place is a well-kept secret, that the people of Miamisburg know about. It is time other cities know how good food and fun is. Get yourself an Ohio brewed beer and a gorgonzola encrusted filet mignon steak. Or go for the Beer Battered Fish ! Either way it is a touchdown.
67 S Main St, Miamisburg, OH 45342
6) MILANO’S ATLANTIC CITY SUBMARINES in BEAVERCREEK:
You can get a light crowd on this night and get one of the HD TVs to yourself. Best bet here is a sub or some pizza. The beers on tap are a decent list, always. Good stuff near the Fairfield Commons mall.
2260 N Fairfield Rd, Beavercreek, OH 45431
7) EL RANCHO GRANDE on 725:
Right near the bar are a few TV’s in this place that is a perfect escape to watch the game. The menu is nice and reasonably priced. Let us recommend some Corona Lights and the Del Mar Trio. Get some Chile Rellenos as well.
1020 Miamisburg Centerville Rd, Washington Township, OH 45459
8) BUNKERS in VANDALIA:
No frills sports bar with enough elbow room, that maybe the crowd wont be so bad. Get wings, because the sauces are great. – Get burgers, they are delicious. Scan the beer menu for some good craft beers. They have a good selection here and
893 E National Rd, Vandalia, OH 45377
9) SPINOZA’S in BEAVERCREEK:
They have some TV’s by certain tables and not many would think of coming here for Super Bowl Sunday. This is a perfect time for yet another great beer selection and some of the best pizza in town. We would suggest a pepperoni, onion, green pepper and mushroom pizza with a local brew. The salads are great too.
2727 Fairfield Commons Blvd, Beavercreek, OH 45431
10) ARCHER’S KETTERING, INDOOR PATIO AREA:
The most versatile menu of the bunch. The secret here is to get a seat on the indoor patio by one of the huge HD flat screen TV’s. Once you do that, tune into the game and get a burger. If you try the sweet and sexy wings, you can’t go wrong. In the mood for pizza? They are surprisingly great here.
2030 E Dorothy Ln, Kettering, OH 45420
Again, realize the above list is because we believe these places will not be uncomfortably packed and you wont be fighting for a TV spots or tables. Plus the food, drink and TV situation is good.

—The largest cheesesteak ever assembled was in Philadelphia and was the length of a football field.
—The first cream cheese is made in New York in 1880. Philadelphia is adopted as the brand name because Philadelphia was considered at the time to be the home of top quality food.
