While it's thoroughly uncool that the San Francisco 49ers did not advance to the Super Bowl, it doesn't mean that you have to miss out on all the good snacking action Sunday has to offer. Some local eateries and caterers are admittedly too depressed to put together any game-day specials, but many others are still ready to play. Here are some of the most seriously winning Super Bowl take-out options in the Bay Area, including some bonus spots that will deliver the likes of fried chicken and brisket anywhere in San Francisco proper. 

  • Lower Haight

    Wing Wings is offering a special menu of wings ($25 for 28, $68-$70 for 50 - both with biscuits or two sides), sandwich packs ($20 for a pound of pulled pork or chicken salad with six buttermilk biscuits) and pigs in a blanket ($8 for one dozen or $15 for two dozen). Preordering starts this Wednesday, January 29, and owner Christian Ciscle requests getting yours in as early as possible.

    Memphis Minnie's has a Sunday-only special of porchetta that can be ordered as a sandwich ($11.99) or plate ($12.99), plus lots of meats by the pound ($7.95-$15.25), including pork ribs, Texas beef brisket, smoked Cajun andouille sausage, Memphis sweet pork, rib tips and smoked chicken. Call the catering office at 415-864-7675 to inquire about prices for larger groups.

  • The Mission

    4505 Meats will beef up your viewing time with pounds of Polish or red-hot sausage links ($12.99-$13.99), bacon-studded hot dogs ($10.99 for five), magic bacon bombs with jalapeño and chorizo ($2), pints of chorizo queso ($8.99) and more. There are also charcuterie platters ($50-$120, with an average cost of under $12 per person). No preorder is necessary. Items will be available at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market on Saturday, February 1, and at the Mission store on Saturday and Sunday, February 2 (limited hours of 11 AM to 3 PM on Sunday). You'll have to go to the store for the magic bacon bombs.

    Hi Lo BBQ is rocking the Super Bowl Feast to Go ($175), which feeds six to eight people. Included is 1 lb. each of brisket and pulled pork, one rack of ribs, two sausages, choice of three sides (double order), one dozen pull-apart rolls and a jar of Hi Lo pickles. Place orders by 2 PM on Saturday, February 1, for pickup.

  • SoMa

    Zero Zero makes eating pizza in front of the television pretty simple, with a choice of picking up hot pies (no notice required, but it does take 10 minutes once you are there) or choosing one of three available frozen: Margherita, the Fillmore (hen of the woods mushrooms, leeks, mozzarella, grana padano, pecorino, fontina, garlic and thyme) and the Castro (sopressata, housemade sausage, tomato sauce, mozzarella and basil). The prices range from $14.50-$18.95.

    Rosa Mexicano is presenting Guac-to-Go Party Packs with guacamole, housemade tortillas and corn tortilla chips. The cost is $25 to feed five people, $50 for 10, $75 for 15 and $100 for 20. Order by Friday, January 31 at 5 PM. This is for pickup unless you are near the restaurant (between Market and Folsom and Main and Embarcadero), in which case they're offering free delivery of the full menu.

  • Citywide Delivery in San Francisco

    Two pop-up kings are ready to bring their tastiness to your door for the game. Chef Joshua Wilder Oakley of Tango & Stache is offering free SF delivery for the Bucket of Love ($35 plus refundable $13 bucket deposit), which feeds four people. It's one whole buttermilk brined and fried Mary's organic chicken (eight pieces) with fried onions and a side of caraway slaw, pint of pickled vegetables and a half pint of Flaco's Fire Sauce, Espolón Tequila Blanco Edition. Orders are due by Thursday, January 30, at noon (e-mail stache@tangoandstache.com).

    Sneaky's BBQ hasn't advertised its Super Bowl specials, but owner Ben Thorne tells us you can order pulled pork, babyback ribs, brisket, BBQ chicken, Kurobuta pork belly and chicken wings in quantities that feed two to eight people ($10-25). There are also individual pints ($7) or trays feeding 14-21 people ($35-50) coleslaw, mac 'n' cheese, collard greens or baked beans. You should also e-mail him (sneakysbbq@gmail.com) by Thursday, providing your planned method of payment, delivery address, phone number and two-hour window for delivery time.

  • East Bay

    Hopscotch will be serving a number of items for pickup, including miso chile wings with blue-cheese dip ($8/dozen), duck-fat chips with fresno aïoli ($5), large chopped salad with sesame dressing ($9), a half pint of white-bean salad with citrus tarragon dressing ($6), gumbo ($15/quart), a "bucket" of fried chicken (eight pieces for $20). Orders can generally be completed in 20 minutes, but the restaurant appreciates when you call ahead for very large orders.

    Build Pizzeria will offer a specialty pizza for pickup called the Picarni, a mash-up of the restaurant's two bestselling pies (Piccante and Carni) with smoked mozzarella, Molinari pepperoni, salami, Italian sausage, roasted garlic, mushrooms and Calabrese peppers, to be served with a double order of garlic fries. Advanced ordering is not necessary, but it is smart.

  • North Bay

    Copita is putting together Super Bowl "Snack Packs" for pickup that each feed four to six people. Choices include 10-layer black-bean dip or bacon guacamole ($12), spicy guajillo rotisserie wings with avocado crema or fried Buffalo wings with candied habanero and blue-cheese-cilantro crema ($14), queso fundido with roasted oyster mushroom or housemade red chorizo ($15), Kobe flank, rotisserie chicken or seasonal roasted veggie nachos ($16), carne con chile ($14) and shredded beef, poblano or chorizo hand pies ($15). Order by Friday, January 31, for pickup between noon and 2 PM on Sunday, February 2.

    Fast Food Français will offer for pickup family-sized platters of spare ribs with mustard BBQ, Petaluma chicken wings with vadouvan, wildflower honey and roasted garlic glaze, fleur de sel and Roquefort crème fraîche dip, and BOS sliders with organic grass-fed beef, wild-boar bacon, St. Nectaire, Béarnaise and lettuce.
