So, it all comes down to this. America’s biggest sporting event to kick off 2020 is here … the Big Game is back and bigger than ever (oh, hey, Shakira and J.Lo halftime show!). With things set to kick off February 2nd, you won’t want to miss a single punt, tackle, or touchdown of the live game. And you won’t, because we’ve rounded up some local haunts to holler your heart out.

Here are seven of Alpharetta’s Big Game watch spots!

1. Bocado Burger

Nothing says gridiron grub like a giant, juicy burger. Order up the Bocado Double Stack with a side of Parmesan Truffle Fries for fuel worthy of a monster offensive lineman. Then, keep winning big with Bocado Burger’s legit game day drink specials. Enjoy $6 Old Fashioneds, $3 Fireball Shortys, $2 Bud Lights, or go for a combo with a Burger Stack, 6 wings, fries and a soda for $12 or Bud Light for $15. The restaurant is plenty big, so be sure to bring the whole crew!

2. Coalition Food and Beverage

Imagine the winning combo of beer, wings, and football—then elevate that to bold new levels with deeply cool ambiance and expertly crafted flavors. That’s the vibe at beloved Downtown hang Coalition Food and Beverage. Whether you prefer your wings spicy and saucy or smoky and savory, the finger food football fans love reigns supreme here. Bonus points for $5 draft beers and $1 wings as hot game day specials.

3. Pepperoni’s Tavern


TVs galore, pool tables, and a kitchen that stays open late enough to watch your team’s coach get doused in Gatorade after they clinch the win—not to mention perfect ratios of sauce, melty cheese, and toppings on every single mouthwatering slice of pizza served. In short, Pepperoni’s Tavern is a WINNER when it comes to good ol’ fashioned football watching. Start with the cheesy bread and fried ravioli, then load up on protein via their decadently delicious take on the classic Meat Lovers pizza. If you’re feeling something outside of the box, be sure to give their Baked Potato pizza a shot (trust us—it’s the perfect blend of potato skin and pizza for a melding of classic football eats you do NOT want to miss!). Feeding a brood all your own? Buy five large pizzas or four large specialty pizzas and get 20 wings free or buy 100 wings and get one large cheese and one large pepperoni pizza free. Pepperoni’s Tavern is offering $1 off Babe Rose Wine and $2 Budweiser/Bud Light mix and match aluminum buckets on game day, so saddle up to your spot at the bar and get after it!
