F&W takes Super Bowl snacks seriously. Here, the absolute best spicy wings, melty sandwiches, messy barbecued ribs, crispy bite-sized appetizers and more.

The best grilled cheese is the gooiest grilled cheese, says expert Laura Werlin: “After you bite into it, the cheese should stretch out past your face as far as your arm will reach. Otherwise, it’s just not right.”

Superfresh pico de gallo and spicy skirt steak make these tacos, from Jesse Vendley of New York’s Calexico, incredibly flavorful.

Manhattan’s Crif Dogs, a late-night hot dog spot, is locally famous for its franks. This one, which goes by the name The Chihuahua, is wrapped in bacon and topped with sour cream and avocado.
