Chipotle is giving away free queso — and other delicious Super Bowl restaurant deals not to miss

Ready, set, bite.

The Chiefs and Niners aren’t even on the field yet, and already there’s so much winning this Super Bowl Sunday, as chain restaurants across the country kick off America’s biggest game day by offering a tempting array of delicious deals.

And while there’s nothing quite like doing it yourself, you won’t be alone if you wind up ordering in.

According to the National Restaurant Association, 59% of us watching the game from home will end up going the takeout and delivery route.

Before you fire up your favorite restaurant mobile app, however, make sure that you take full advantage of the discounts and freebies being offered.

Here, first reported by Eat This, Not That!, are a handful of the tastiest restaurant offers — and how to get them.
