Super Bowl Sunday is just two days away and with many fans adapting to coronavirus rules, business owners and game day hosts say they are preparing so their guests can enjoy the big game, and stay safe at the same time.

Trip tip, baby back ribs, chicken, and beef ribs are just a few classics on the menu this year for Rib Line BBQ. But this year, they are offering a new special for game day.

"With everything going on we are not trying to promote big parties and big get-togethers, but we do have our special we are doing for the whole month of February... we have family meals that feed 4-6 people [and] we also have our Poly pack that feeds 2-4 people," Rib Line chef and owner Brian Appiano said.

With the stay-at-home order lifted, some restaurants will be gearing up for distanced, outdoor guests.

Mason Bar general manager Daniel Perez says taking safety precautions is important for his restaurant.

"It's a big thing, [keeping] socially distant, being responsible, being aware, [sanitizing] and safety for staff as well as guests," he said.

Those hosting at home are also adapting.

"Normally we would have all the friends over and have a Super Bowl party but with COVID, keeping it small," San Luis Obispo resident Reese Swanson said.

Chiefs or Buccaneers, take-out or outdoor dining, restaurants are just happy to make the game day special.

"Gratitude and appreciation. That has been the one thing I stress to the staff and always let the guests know that through all of this, this has been a really impressive part for us," Perez said.
