There is still plenty of football left to watch this season. We know that Buffalonians aren’t afraid of a little snow, but for those who simply just prefer to watch the game inside, in the warmth, we’ve created a guide of our go-to bars to watch Bills games. These places have an energetic atmosphere, great food and drink specials, and we can’t forget the giveaways. Make sure you celebrate your Sunday Funday right by checking out any of these awesome bars with specials!  

Disclaimer: We love a good “specials” post as much as the next Buffalonian, but please remember bars and restaurants tend to change their specials often – which means this info could have changed since the date this article was posted! It was correct at time of publishing, but not guaranteed weeks or seasons later.
