DINING BEAT GET YOUR GAME ON.

Last-minute Super Bowl parties worth considering are those at Gallo's Bar & Grill, 5425 Farralone Ave., Woodland Hills., (818) 346-4393; Monty's Steakhouse, 5371 Topanga Canyon Blvd., Woodland Hills, (818) 716-9736; and Granita, 23725 W. Malibu Road, Malibu.

Gallo's, with seven television screens showing the game, promises a patio barbecue beginning at 1:30 p.m. featuring hot dogs ($2), burgers ($3), chicken and ribs ($5 each). Drink specials include draft beer ($1.50) and bar cocktails ($3).

Information: (818) 346-4393.

The $35-per-person party at Granita includes a half-time, all-you-can-eat buffet of iceberg wedges with bleu cheese dressing, grilled sausages, patty melts a la Naylor, fries, fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, beef brisket, pulled pork and foot-long hot dogs.

Appetizers begin at 1 p.m. with pizzas, spicy chicken wings, chili, cold meats, chips with salsa and guacamole, and veggies with dip.

Attendees can also indulge at the dessert and sundae bar.

Draft beer is $3 a glass, $12 by the pitcher.

Reservations needed: (310) 456-9025.

Monty's also promises an all-you-can-eat buffet, at only $15 per person, plus drinks at regular price.

SIZE MATTERS: Of the 67 percent of Americans who, according to an American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) survey, finish their restaurant entrees most of the time or always, 73 percent said that restaurant portions were ``just right.''

All of these clean plate clubbers, though, should pay heed to AICR experts, who suggest that continuous cleaning off of one's plate may be linked to obesity and obesity-related diseases.

NAPKIN NOTES: Blending tea with tiny tapioca balls, or ``boba'' tea as it's known in Taiwan, is the latest fad of college-age youths. Find it at the new Zen Zoo Tea, 1948 Weyburn Ave., Westwood. Information: (310) 209-6288. ... Replacing the Times Square Deli, 6501 Fallbrook Ave., West Hills, (818) 704-6633, is The Original Spaghetti Company. Ironically, the menu has only three items under the ``spaghetti'' heading. Fettuccine lists four, capellini lists six. And beneath Italian Specialties are two prime New York steak listings ($19 and $20) served with red-skin mashed potatoes, not spaghetti.
