What Foods To Serve At A Game Day Party?
The key to a great game day party is to have a variety of food which can be easily served and left out for your guests to enjoy throughout the game. Think of a variety of snack foods and appetizers. Practically everyone loves wings! They make the perfect party appetizer. Plus don’t forget to add a hearty dish to fill everyone up. A Mac & Cheese bar with a variety of toppings and a few salads will do the trick. And of course, you don’t want to forget dessert. No one will ever say no to chocolate chip cookies, fudgy brownies, and decadent chocolate cake!

Tips To Plan Your Game Day Party Menu
- Place your order for food delivery before the party starts to allow plenty of time for delivery, especially if it’s a big game and delivery services will be busy.
- Serve all food buffet style. It’s easier for guests to graze and enjoy at their leisure.
- Choose foods which can sit out for several hours.
- Have two to three appetizers and snacks ready when guests arrive.
- A variety of chips and dips are perfect to start. Wing Squad offers Mrs. Vickie’s Kettle Cooked Potato Chips in a variety of flavors including Original, Jalapeno, Smokehouse BBQ, and Salt & Vinegar.
- Pre-made party platters with meats and cheeses are easy to buy ready to go from your grocery store.
- Chicken wings are welcome at any time of the game. Serve a variety of flavors from mild to hot, sweet to spicy to please everyone.
- Midway through the game, bring out a hearty dish. A Mac & Cheese Bar with different toppings is not only filling, but fun too. Spiced Taco meat is a great add on or keep it classic with beefy chili or how about cheeseburger mac?
- Order a few salads and don’t forget the carrots and celery sticks to add some greens and crunch to the menu. There will be a few who will appreciate the veggies, even if they don’t admit it.
- Bring out easy to eat desserts like brownies and chocolate chip cookies and coffee for the last hour of the game. And then all you have to do is get ready to cheer your team to victory!
How Many Wings To Order For A Party?
There’s nothing worse than running out of food in the middle of the party. To calculate how many wings to order, first take a look at your overall menu. How many different types of foods will you be serving? Will wings be served as an appetizer or as the main event? How many items on the menu are hearty and filling?
Wing Squad wings orders come in 6, 12 and 18 pieces. How many wings to order will depend on what other foods you are serving and how hungry your guests are. Plan for 6 wings per person when serving as an appetizer, 10-12 when serving as an entree, and 18 for those with big appetites.
What Chicken Wing Flavors To Order For A Party?
No matter what game is on TV, wings are always welcome to the feast. We recommend ordering a variety of chicken wing flavors and spice levels to satisfy everyone in your squad.
We know trying to figure out which wings flavors to order can be tougher than predicting the March Madness brackets. Some like their chicken wings hot and others mild. Some want them sweet or spicy, or somewhere in between. And then some prefer them dry rubbed, wet and saucy, or even naked. There are those happy with a classic BBQ with a smoky finish and those who are foodies and want bolder flavors like Sweet Chili. These wings start sweet, but the spicy red chili fires them up!
Thankfully for all that, Wing Squad delivers! We chose the most popular chicken wing flavors for the Wing Squad menu, available now in 130 locations across the country.
Wing Squad offers five tasty flavors of wings including BBQ (mild), Honey Garlic and Sweet Chili (medium), Cajun and Buffalo (hot). All available to order in 6 piece, 12 piece and 18 piece sizes to feed a few or a crowd. Wing Squad’s oven-baked chicken wings have no antibiotics or preservatives and are gluten-free. Order a variety and mix them up.
If you still can’t decide, let our customers help narrow down the choices for you. Everyone has a favorite kind of wings. By a landslide, Wing Squad fans have chosen our Buffalo Wings as the most popular wings from coast to coast. and other flavors were fairly evenly split in popularity.
While Buffalo Wings are the most popular wings flavor nationwide, our East Coast Wing Squad fans have chosen Honey Garlic as the second most popular. They are perfectly sticky, sweet with a hint of spice.
On the other side of the country, our West Coast fans chose our dry rubbed hot Cajun with that addictive Louisiana Spice rub as their second top favorite. You can say East coasters like it sweet and West coasters like it hot.
For a party, your best bet is to order all the flavors!

What Sides Should You Serve For Your Party?
Don’t forget the salads. They will not only balance your nutritional intake but can be more than side dishes if you are serving plant-based and vegetarian guests.
Wing Squad offers a Caesar Salad with Romaine lettuce, Parmesan, croutons and creamy Caesar dressing and a Mixed Green Salad with mixed greens tossed with red onion, tomato, cucumbers & served with Italian dressing. Order a few of each as most guests like to pick some of each.
What Desserts To Serve At Your Game Day Party?
Keep it simple when it comes to desserts. Most people will fill up with wings, Mac & Cheese and salads and barely have any room left for dessert. But we all love a sweet bite at the end of a meal.
Who can resist freshly baked chocolate chip cookies and Ghirardelli chocolate chip brownies? No one! If you want to get creative, try decorating your brownies with icing and sports-themed candy pieces.
If you want to indulge, order slices of our Chocolate Cake because it’s not a party without cake. Indulge in three layers of rich chocolate cake and chocolate buttercream frosting. You can jazz it up with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, drizzle chocolate or raspberry sauce and whipped cream. Score!
