Six Places to Watch the Saints Play the Bears This Sunday

By: Staff

New Orleans is up against Chicago again this week. The Saints are favored to win the upcoming home game, with Bears coach Matt Nagy himself saying The Saints are "a hell of a football team." This first playoff game is not one to be missed. Make the event even better by stopping by one of these places. Dine in or place an order for takeaway and catch the game from the best seats in your house. Whatever you choose, mask up, stay safe, and cheer on the black and gold!

Manning's Sports Bar & Grill

This Fulton Street Square favorite is back in business—and boy, did we miss 'em! Manning's reopened on New Year's Day, bringing back their signature burger, dreamy drinks, and the ultimate sports bar experience. The atmosphere is made complete with a sports anchor desk, memorabilia, artwork, and 30 flatscreen TVs. If that weren't enough, the upper deck faces a 13-foot mega-screen from which you can see the game larger than life. On the field or in a restaurant, the Manning's go all out. 519 Fulton St., (504) 593- 8118,

Lots A Luck Tavern

Lots a Luck is a neighborhood bar in Lakeview with all the charms: spectacular bartenders, friendly regulars, free hot nuts and other snacks. Outdoor seating is always a plus, but in these times, it's a downright necessity. The TVs are visible from the patio, so you can catch the game. 203 Homedale St., (504) 483-0978,

Daisy Dukes

The quintessential Southern diner has breakfast all the time, some of the best Bloody Marys around, and Cajun classics such as gumbo and andouille sausage. Even better, with six New Orleans area locations, you don't have to venture far to find yourself at a Daisy Dukes. Order your go-to po-boy at this classic joint and watch the game. You'll know why the place is such a fan favorite. Multiple Locations,

Carreta's Grill

Carreta's has been one of the top local restaurants to get authentic Mexican food since 1999. Well-established and well-loved, Carreta's has four locations around NOLA. That means you can get avocado fries, Tamales Locos, and multiple margaritas near you. Salt-rimmed glasses and sizzling fajitas might not be part of your usual gameday tradition, but don't they sound like a custom worth taking on? Multiple Locations,

Buffa's Bar & Grill

The bar "on the border of the Quarter" made a name for itself as one of the places to go for live music and hanging out with friends. Buffa's also happens to be an ideal joint to watch the game. Get some red beans and rice or the bratwurst jambalaya. Actually, get both.1001 Esplanade Ave., (504) 949-0038,

Hermes Bar at Antoine's

Steeped in 180 years of history, Hermes Bar at Antoine's is a classy option, but not too fancy for football. Pick up a Pimm's Cup and an order of Creole-seasoned cochon chips to cheer on the Saints while celebrating New Orleans tradition. The oldest restaurant in NOLA knows a thing or two about that. 713 Saint Louis St., (504) 581-4422,
