For many, the Super Bowl contains virtually no sporting significance. It's especially true this year, where the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers are facing off in the 50th iteration of the NFL's marketing bonanza in Santa Clara, California. Whether you're watching what might be Peyton Manning's last game — or consider the game to be what happens between the commercials — there's one thing that brings everyone together: the food.

If you're heading over to someone's house for a Super Bowl potluck or hosting a party yourself, a good dish can make or break, so don't order a dud. Infuse your Super Bowl party with some real LA flavor — or maybe even a stadium filled with burgers and fries. Bear in mind that it's important to call in or order online as early as possible — some of the spots also have ordering deadlines for promotional catering items. With that said, read on for ten convenient takeout options for the Big Game.

DIY Carnitas Tacos from The Original Zamora Bros.

Copy Link

Yes, it's America's game, and tacos are part of what makes being an American in Southern California great. For an easy crowd-pleasing Super Bowl solution, order a bunch of piping hot carnitas from this East LA institution and serve them up with salsas and chopped onions and cilantro with some steamed tortillas.

Takeout Sushi Platter from Arado

Copy Link

Yeah, it's not the sushi at Urasawa, but if you're looking to keep things fresh on a day that celebrates all of the glorious heavy American fare, Arado offers sushi platters of various sizes. It's especially imperative to call ahead to make sure the restaurant has enough fish to accommodate orders.

Texas Brisket and BBQ from Bludso's Bar & Que

The Texans might have not made it far enough into the playoffs this season, but that doesn't mean you can't dig into Kevin Bludso's famous Texas-style brisket. The Compton, California native was trained by his great aunt in Corsicana, Texas on the art of the 'cue.

Harissa Spiced Chicken Wings at Superba Food + Bread

Copy Link

Super Bowl Sunday is "Superba Bowl" at Superba Food + Bread, and the Venice location is dishing out Harissa Spiced Chicken Wings with Yogurt Sauce, BBQ Pork Ribs and Fingerling Potato Salad alongside a couple other game day sides. Ordering is available online by filling out a form. Order fast — they're going to stop taking orders on Feb. 2 at 4 p.m.

Kosher Deli Sandwiches at Lieder's Take-Out

Copy Link

Everyone's favorite Shabbos takeout is serving up a couple all-inclusive platters for 10-12 in addition to catering-sized trays of candied bacon, wings, and potato borekas. They're also serving up subs of customizable lengths. Don't wait too long, though, orders are due by Feb. 3 at 5:00 p.m.

Thai-themed Finger Foods at Ayara Thai Cuisine

Copy Link

Ayara Thai isn't just one of the better Thai restaurants in the city — it's also putting a Thai-style twist on game day fare, including Chicken Satay, fried shrimp, wontons and Thai Beef Jerkey. With two platters priced rather reasonably ($85 for 10-12, $45 for 5-7), it's definitely a good idea to call ahead. They're accepting phone orders at (310) 410-8848.

Korean-style Chicken Wings from Chicken Day

Copy Link

If you're going to do wings, why not up the ante with wings from a culture where wing eating and beer eating is its own subculture? Nothing quite compares to the crispy, vinegary sides of pickled daikon for balance, and the fried and glazed wings at Chicken Day fit the bill quite nicely.

This Burger Stadium at Chomp Eatery & Juice Station

Copy Link

Come on, it's a Burger Stadium. This is the only time it'll be appropriate to eat fries off of the football field. But actually, Chomp has a wide variety of platters available for your Super Bowl takeout convenience.

A Non-Chain Pie Solution from The Coop Pizza

Copy Link

Every Domino's, Pizza Hut and Papa John's is going to have phones ringing off the hook, but if you're going to compete with hungry Super Bowl pizza eaters, why not go with a non-chain option that puts out a delicious pie in its own right? The Coops' prices are comparable to chains (as in, pretty darn inexpensive), but it'll feel — and taste — better to order from this 40-year-old family operation.

Peyton Manning might be considered one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, but if you're looking to throw up a Hail Mary in the flavor department, ordering bulk birria for goat tacos at Flor Del Rio might be more of an Aaron Rodgers move. Make sure to call ahead for availability, and revel in the stewed, gamey, delicious goat tacos that pair perfectly with beer.
