HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Green Bay Packer and Pittsburgh Steeler fans flocked to Pine Belt area restaurants Sunday evening to watch the two storied franchises face off in the Super bowl.

It was standing room only and a wait at the door at Buffalo Wild Wings in Hattiesburg.

The atmosphere was electric as the Packers jumped out to a 14 to nothing lead in the first quarter.

Not everyone was there to enjoy the game though. Manager Neal McClain had more than 40 staff working to take care of the overflow crowd.

Spirits were high among the employees despite having to work.

"It's a great atmosphere," said Chris Catrett, waiter at Buffalo Wild Wings. "Just a great place to watch football. We've got the greatest customers, and great wings and great beer."
