How to Create a Kansas City and Tampa Inspired Super Bowl Menu

The Super Bowl kicks off this Sunday, February 7, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers face off against the Kansas City Chiefs! In between choosing the team we will cheer on, learning more about the first poet to perform at a Super Bowl (we’re looking at you, Amanda Gorman), and replaying all of The Weeknd’s hit songs prior to the Super Bowl Halftime Show, we’re in the middle of planning our menus. So, what should you drink and eat on Sunday? Here are the key menu items to include if you want to honor Tampa and Kansas City!



Kansas is known for a classic drink most often enjoyed in the morning – coffee! Think about brewing your go-to brand and enjoying it hot or with ice. If you would prefer to sip on something alcoholic, you’ll want to turn to beer. Kansas is known for their breweries!


You can never have too many appetizers, so we recommend adding barbecue ribs, fried chicken, and onion rings to your menu. The first two don’t need any additional explanation, but onion rings make the list because they’re often included in a famous sandwich called the Z-Man, which involves brisket with barbecue sauce, provolone cheese, and the infamous onion rings.   

Main Course: 

This main course may sound like an odd pairing, but chili and cinnamon rolls are a favorite in Kansas! You’ll tick off your sweet and savory boxes with this course. 


Of course, a Super Bowl menu wouldn’t be complete without dessert, so you’ll want to turn to pie! This is where your Kansas City and Tampa menus can easily overlap because pie is a popular choice in Florida too.



For non-alcoholic fun, you will want to start your Super Bowl celebrating by toasting with glasses of orange juice – a Florida favorite. If you do want to add an alcoholic drink to your menu, a Mojito is the way to go!


Tampa is home to a number of great spots to stop for tacos, so salsa is a must for your first course. Rather than serving a traditional recipe, make it mango!

Main Course:

Cuban sandwiches are a Tampa favorite, so it gets the nod for the main course! A Cuban sandwich is made by combining salami, ham, pork, cheese, and fixings together (here’s a great recipe!). Think about cutting the sandwich into halves or quarters to make things more bite-sized.


As we mentioned above, celebrate Tampa and Kansas City together by serving pie for dessert. Key Lime pie is a favorite in the Sunshine State!

Touchdown, Groupon!

I’m of the opinion that some of the greatest things in life are not actually things. Instead, they’re concerts and plays, restaurants and classes, vacations in new-to-you destinations and adventures in your hometown. They’re afternoons that stretch into evenings, like this weekend, when you cheer on your team as they take on their rival on the biggest stage. The best things in life are experiences, and I’ve learned you can uncover some of the top experiences on Groupon with Shopkick.


We all text with a complete variety of people, and one of my favorite texts to receive is from friends asking me if I want to attend a concert. I always want my answer to revolve around one word: yes. That single yes has oftentimes not only allowed me to experience a night out with a friend but to always glance sideways at each other in astonishment when we see our seats for the first time. We’ve had some of our greatest views to see some of the coolest acts for a complete fraction of the price, thanks to Groupon.


As my family and I research activities to experience while exploring new cities, we always check all of the top sites and read reviews. Once we’ve landed on the excursion we want to take, we book with Groupon. They have many of the same companies listed, and just like the concerts I have seen, the sightseeing is made even sweeter thanks to the money we collectively save.

Explore Your Hometown:

Just like my friends who ask if I want to attend a concert or my family’s desire to discover the best of a city, I also always want to make sure I’m finding fun experiences in my hometown. A quick search on Groupon will allow you to find restaurants you haven’t dined in yet mixed with well-known favorites. The site will allow you to see deals to ice skate or jump in a trampoline park or explore museums you haven’t visited in years. Groupon can make your hometown feel brand new, and the things you find can also act as amazing gifts!

Check Off Your Chores:

Though experiences are always some of the most fun, sometimes you also need to check chores off of your list. Don’t hesitate to visit Groupon if your car needs an oil change, you would like to try having meals or groceries delivered to your door (or perhaps a neighbor needs a hand), or you need to find a professional to fix something at home or help you move to a new home. Groupon, without a doubt, has it all, including a complete section for Goods.

Touchdown, Groupon!
