Super Bowl LVII will kick off on Sunday, February 12, at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. There’s one thing you just can’t go without for the big game—vegan chicken wings, of course! So to make sure you have your favorite savory snack before kickoff, we’ve found some of the top vegan wings in the greater Phoenix area, many of which are available near the stadium.
