The Ultimate Super Bowl Guide

It is finally time for the big game! The Super Bowl is one of the biggest sporting events that takes place every year. The best teams in the National Football League face off against one another for an incredible spectacle that brings people from all over the country, and the world, to watch it in person. If you can’t manage to get a ticket for the game in person, you will join one of the millions who tune in worldwide to watch the game on TV, have a few snacks, ogle at the halftime show, and have a huge party with your friends! 

But, if you are one of the lucky ones who manage to snag a ticket, you are lucky enough to see this game for a once-in-a-lifetime experience! The Super Bowl brings an amazing atmosphere, complete with a packed stadium, loud team chants, lots of beer, great football food (think cheesy nachos and bacon fries), and hundreds of people who are fans just like you. Read on to see how you can make the most of a Super Bowl trip to Arizona! Here is our Ultimate Superbowl Guide

Make the Most of Your Time in Glendale 

This year the Super Bowl is being held in Glendale, AZ, one of the coolest towns in the entire country. Glendale is known for being an outdoor-centric spot with close proximity to bigger cities, like Phoenix, while still maintaining its mountain charm. Basically, Glendale is the best of both worlds!  

You can head here to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city to go hiking, white water rafting, biking, or visit one of the many wineries. Or you can live here and head to the city in no time at all if you want to go to a shopping center, new restaurant, or bustling pub in the heart of Phoenix.  

We can’t think of a better place to have the Super Bowl. But one question remains — how can you find accommodation for a sporting event that is so popular? Surely every place will be sold out…right? Well, fortunately, that is not the case! Although the overpriced hotel rooms and hostels may have sold out long ago, there are other rental options that you can take advantage of that are actually much better and fairly priced!  

Check out Porter if you are interested in renting a luxurious, spacious, and modern property that can fit all of your guests with ease. Instead of renting an overpriced Airbnb or paying for a tiny hotel room that is miles away from the stadium, we recommend using Porter to find luxurious and modern homes in the Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Glendale areas that are perfect for your home base for the Super Bowl. 

After all, you are going to want to spend some time in your house before and after the game! So, why not splurge on a bigger home that has a flatscreen TV, a private outdoor deck or pool, and ample interior seating for all of your guests? You will want to sit and mingle with your guests after watching the Super Bowl so you can talk about the game, continue having some drinks, and enjoy some tasty snacks!  

Let’s check out the best places to get something to eat in Glendale — and why Porter is THE premier property rental company in this area.  

Best Restaurants in the Glendale Area 

 Before heading off for your Super Bowl vacation in Arizona, you should first think of a few restaurants, bars, or pubs that are must-visit spots on your list. After all, there are hundreds of restaurants and eateries in the surrounding area. Making a list of your favorites and calling for a reservation ahead of time can help you avoid long lines and wait times. 

 Arrowhead Grill 

 Looking for a place that serves up sumptuous steaks and American classics? Look no further! Arrowhead Grill is a fan favorite among locals and tourists alike for its huge plates and classic dishes. We recommend getting the artisan cheese tray to start to split with the table, filled with your choice of four cheeses, fruits, figs, pears, and yummy dates. Or you can start with the Kumamoto oysters that are fresh and come with a mignonette sauce.  

As an entree, you NEED to get a steak! After all, what goes better with football than a classic American dish? We recommend getting the original recipe Delmonico steak, a 16-ounce New York strip, 22-ounce PorterHouse, or 18-ounce bone-in KC strip to split with the table. You can even get a Tuscan steak marinated in olive oil and served with fried eggs!  

A Touch of European Café 

Just because you are in Glendale, this doesn’t mean that everything is Americanized! If you are missing the European classics like spaghetti pomodoro, huge glasses of wine, fresh fruits, and a nostalgic aura, then head to A Touch of European Cafe. We recommend getting the Polish Sample Platter to start, featuring pierogi, cabbage rolls, hunter’s stew, and polish sausage. Or you can try the Hungarian Pork Goulash with carrots, root vegetables, and noodles. 

If you head here in the middle of the day, you can’t go wrong with one of the many sandwich options on the menu. Our personal favorites are the Grilled Prosciutto Ham Sandwich with provolone, the panini croissant with cheese and ham, the Italian Sub with ham, salami, provolone, and ciabatta bread, or the Kielbasa sandwich with cold sauerkraut. If you come here for dinner, this is when the restaurant really comes alive! Head here after the big Super Bowl game and try one of the classic Polish dishes — ask the owner what his favorite is and go from there!  

Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse 

If you just can’t get enough of really great meat, steaks, potatoes, and fun vibes, then Fogo de Chao is the next place on your list. This innovative steakhouse brings a South American flair to the typical American joint, featuring melt-in-your-mouth slabs of meat, kicking Brazilian spices, and an all-you-can-eat deal that makes this one of the most popular restaurants in the entire state.  


Our last favorite that is a MUST during your Super Bowl trip is Cuff, a downtown American eatery that features craft beer, a modern vibe, and great food. We recommend starting with the sweet chili calamari or chicken wings to split with the table. Follow one of these mouthwatering appetizers with a plate of barbeque pork ribs with sweet BBQ sauce, fish fry with house coleslaw, or shrimp and grits with spicy andouille sausage. Pair one of these dishes with a signature cocktail, like the Cuff’s Copper Cup with house-infused vodka, Aperol, and ginger beer, and you will have one of the best nights ever!
