Rhombus Guy's Getting Ready For Super Bowl Sunday

Despite the weather, it was a busy day for pizza places in the area...and tomorrow is expected to be even busier. Traditionally more pizza will be sold Super Bowl Sunday than any other day of the year.

Rhombus Guy's in Grand Forks will have extra people working in the restaurant, as well as one or two additional delivery drivers working. It's expecting Super Bowl Sunday to be a very busy day, as people will be watching the big game and won't want to cook. With Super Bowl Sunday just a day away, Rhombus Guy's is expecting to be making a lot of pizza tomorrow. Friday and Saturday are typically its busiest days, but the restaurant is expecting tomorrow to be just as busy, and that means lots more olives and cheese.

Arron Hendricks/Co-Owner: "I would not be surprised at all if we were between the 80 and 100 people range in here to watch the Super Bowl."

Rhombus Guy's is expecting about half of its business to be in deliveries but the other half will be people eating in the restaurant, as there are plenty of TVs to watch the big game on. Downstairs in the kitchen, cooks will be ready for them. They will be doing more prep work than usual for a Sunday. Delivery drivers are also prepared for a busy day.

Dillon Cole/Delivery Driver: "We're probably [going to be] doing deliveries around the clock. We'll probably be delivering from noon to like 9 PM nonstop."

Even though some winter weather is expected for tomorrow, owners don't expect it will slow business down. They say people will probably still be able to get out, and if not, they can order delivery.

Arron Hendricks: "As far as in the city, I don't think it'll have too much of an effect, especially since the Super Bowl is tomorrow evening."

Some of the most popular choices expected for tomorrow? Appetizers like wings and nachos, and of course, the famous T-Rex Pizza.
