Best Food Delivery For The Super Bowl


The big game is less than a week away - and it's the East Coast vs. The West Coast. In honor of the #DeflateGate controversy, expect us to be deflating delivery fees throughout the weekend, but first let's go over what restaurants deliver the perfect food for you to enjoy during the Super Bowl.

Celebrate National Greasy Foods Day With These 10 Belt-Breakers

Jake Melnicks chicken wings National Greasy Foods Day

A lot of people aren’t aware of the fact that October 25th has been labeled “National Greasy Foods Day” (perhaps it’s just an Internet thing…), but we don’t see any potential hurt in reminding you that this food holiday does in fact exist because, if you didn’t know, greasy foods and food delivery go together like locks and keys. So, being your greasy food delivery experts, we’re here to enlighten you of ten belt breakers-that are worth indulging in on National Greasy Foods Day – two from Boston, two from Chicago, two from Dallas, two from Minneapolis and two from Philadelphia!

1. Fried Chicken Fingers Plate – The Coast Café, Boston 

Who said that the city of Boston couldn’t serve delicious, authentic, southern fried food? Whoever did was not aware of the existence of The Coast Café right across the Charles River just outside of Cambridge’s Central Square. The Coast Café serves some of Boston’s best comfort food, and the place to start there – undoubtedly – is the fried chicken. For me, I indulge in the Fried Chicken Fingers Plate if I don’t have any responsibilities the rest of the day and can nod off on the couch in the middle of a weekend afternoon with no worries. That’s the whole point of comfort food – to make you feel comfortable.

Staff Picks: Cookout Food Without The Cooking

Carson's Ribs DiningIn

There's a point in life that everyone reaches where they want to grill outside, but some may come to the sad realization that they are entirely incapable of doing so. Perhaps it's because it's snowy outside; maybe they live in a city where it's too congested to own a grill; sometimes they are way too busy to actually host a cookout or to cook cookout food. 

This is where DiningIn can help you all out!  

With our first Staff Picks blog post, we want to ensure our patrons in each of our beloved cities that if you want cookout food, you’re entirely capable of getting that desired delectable fare without doing any cooking (or leaving the house for that matter) by providing our valued customers with a variety of options. Cookouts have never been so easy - maybe call it a cook-in

Matt A, Copywriter - You really can't go wrong with a New York Strip Steak or a Signature Burger from Joe's American Bar & Grill in Boston. Whether it's from their Back Bay, Waterfront or Woburn location, you'll be delivered juicy, seared-to-perfection pieces of beef. To make it a truly authentic cookout experience, order sides of Corn on the Cob and Creamy Cole Slaw with your entrée.
