Philadelphia is going to be jam-packed with Eagles fans and excitement for our first ever Super Bowl parade on Thursday. With festivities kicking off at 11 a.m. at Broad & Pattison and ending with a ceremony at 1 p.m. at the Art Museum, there’s plenty of time before, during and after the parade to grab a bite to eat with your fellow Eagles fans. While Philadelphia chock full of incredible restaurants, the following have some pretty sweet specials for the Super Bowl parade that you’ll want to take advantage of.

Yakitori Boy
211 N. 11th St.

Every epic Super Bowl parade needs an after party, right? Head on down to Chinatown’s Yakitori Boy for their victory party. Guests can enjoy $4 Bud Light Lime in addition to a signature Eagles shot for $5. They even have an Eagles roll (tuna tataki, mango & tempura crunch, shrimp & avocado, wasabi mayo, eel sauce) on the menu, which will be available for $9 in honor of Super Bowl MVP, #9 Nick Foles. From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., you can also enjoy the usual Yakitori Boy happy hour specials, which include $6 select cocktails, wine by the glass and $5 draft beers. Happy hour food specials include $5 yakitori skewers, $4 wings, $3.50 pork gyoza, $4 rolls and more. Be sure to show off your singing skills in the karaoke lounge, as well.

640 N. Broad St.

All pizzas will be $10 on the day of the Super Bowl Parade at acclaimed Italian restaurant, Osteria. Chef Jeff Michaud, who now owns Osteria with Michael Schulson, earned a James Beard award for his work here in 2010. In addition to the pizza special, enjoy dishes like the chicken liver rigatoni ($18), wild boar bolognese ($20) and porcini garganelli ($24). Finally, there is an Eagles specialty pie on the menu called “The Pederson,” made with Laphroaig Scotch mist, vodka and rosemary sprig. Osteria is open for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday  and dinner beginning at 5 p.m.

Oyster House
1516 Sansom St.

Located a block from Broad Street, Oyster House is a great option for a post-parade bite, although be warned: it gets packed even on normal days. As a special for the Super Bowl parade, they’re bringing back the Philly Roll, which is a pretzel bun filled with warm lobster meat and a side of fries.  Lunch is served every day from 11:30 to 2:30 p.m. and dinner begins at 5 p.m.

Prohibition Taproom
501 N. 13th St.

For drinks, sip on $5 Citywide specials all day long as well as $4 pints of Yards PPA and $3 cans of Sterling Pig’s “The Snuffler” IPA.

Milkboy South Street
401 South St.
