Fette Sau: Let this Frankford Avenue BBQ joint smoke you out with one of three different party packages designed for the game. Go for “The Safety,” with pulled pork, brisket and two sides ($185; feeds six to eight); “The Huddle,” which adds a whole chicken and two more sides to the mix ($285; feeds 10-12); or “The Red Zone,” with ribs, sausages and just about every side on the menu ($485; feeds 18-20). Order by end of day Friday for game-day pickup (215-391-4888).
Joe’s Steaks: If you’re going cheesesteak, don’t settle for the no-name deli at the corner. Instead, order a build-your-own package from one of the best steak shops in the city. Prices start at $90 for a kit that feeds 10-15 and includes a tray of cooked beef (or chicken), Liscio’s rolls, your choice of cheese, onions, pickles, peppers, ketchup and chips, plus bonus free fries (215-535-9405).
Rustica: Chicken pot pie pizza? Yes, it’s a thing at this Second Street storefront, along with dozens of other unique pies. Unlike many pizzerias, the hoagies and salads here are also top-notch, so be sure to supplement your pie order when you call it in (215-627-1393).
