The Best Drunk Food At Colleges Across America

College is a glorious time where the beer flows from the heavens, students party all day and night, and you learn that the most important meal of the day takes place after 1 am. In our experience, choosing a good drunk food can be the difference between making it to your 8 am or sleeping through it yet again. It’s not like you would pick just any light beer, would you? Of course not… Drunk munchies deserve the same amount of attention.
In order to help save your mornings (at the expense of your waist size), COED’s taking a look at the best drunk foods in colleges across the USA–plus one school in Canada. These are the restaurants and staples that really matter when you’ve been drinking for 10 hours. Enjoy our picks below and feel free to embark on a road-trip across America, sampling each and every one of the institutions below. Also, make sure and let us know if we forgot your favorite place for drunk food in the comment section…

Arizona State University

Where you’re eating: Oregano’s Pizza Bistro

What you’re getting: The Numero One-O Pizza (Stuffed)

Follow on: Facebook | Twitter

Although this drunk heaven has both thin crust pizza and Chicago-style deep dish pizza, students here opt for the stuffed because this stuff keeps you full for days. There are several options, but the traditional is the way to go. It’s a combination of homemade sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, onions and green peppers and they claim that it’s, “the greatest stuffed pizza on the planet.” When it’s 2 am, we’ll believe anything–just get the stuffed pizza in our mouths. (Photo: AZ Central)

Where you’re eating: Fat Sal’s Deli

What you’re getting: The Fat Buffalo

Follow on: Facebook | Twitter

You really can’t go wrong with anything you order from the infamous Fat Sal’s Deli. This place is a mecca for drunk people and, um, people under any sort of substance that may be practically legal in California. The cream of the crop at Fat Sal’s, though? That’d be the Fat Buffalo, which has chicken fingers , mozzarella sticks, melted cheddar, french fries, blue cheese dressing & buffalo hot sauce all wrapped on a hero. We just felt our hearts stop, too.  (Photo: San Diego Mag)

University of Colorado-Boulder

Where you’re eating: The Sink

What you’re getting: Sink Burger

Follow on: Facebook | Twitter

UC-Boulder knows how to party with the best of them. When your minor is in drinking, you better know where to end your night–and the best spot in town for that has got to be The Sink. The menu is huge and has everything from pizza to amazing desserts, but the Sink Burger really takes the crown. The classic Sink Burger is a patty served with lettuce, tomato, pickle, onion, and the “world famous” Sink Hickory Sauce on the side. If you really want to step your drunk munchie game up, you better add cheese and bacon to that beast.  (Photo: Taylor Takes A Taste)

Cornell University

Where you’re eating: Collegetown Bagels

What you’re getting: The Round House (or the Pizza Bagel)

Follow on: Facebook | Twitter

Collegetown Bagels is a beloved institution in Ithaca, New York–and with good reason. You have tons of drunk options, but if you’re feeling extra adventurous (which, of course, you are), you have to go with the beloved Round House, which is scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, pepper jack cheese and a damn hash brown on a rosemary salt bagel. This breakfast sandwich is a must while still drunk the next morning. The clear runner-up is the Pizza Bagel, which is exactly what it sounds like: perfect mozzarella cheese and pizza sauce melted on a perfect bagel. (Photo: Tumblr)

What do you need more than anything? Probably a lot of things but, really, you just need the infamous Taylor Ham, Egg & Cheese on a bagel of your choice from Newark Deli & Bagels. Make sure to put some salt, pepper and hot sauce on that bad boy and you’ll make it through that class. We can’t promise making it through the day, though. (Photo: Spoon University)

CoCo Bolos is an institution around Kansas State, and you’re expected to show up buzzed and chow your way through the best Cajun food in town.  We recommend the BBQ Shrimp Po’ Boy, which sports grilled gulf shrimp basted with their Cajun BBQ sauce, and served on a french roll with shredded lettuce, tomato and their amazing zesty mayo. The place closes at 2 am, and you should expect it to be packed until then. (Photo: Facebook)

Where you’re eating: Slices Pizza Company

What you’re getting: The Coney Island

Follow on: Facebook | Twitter

With Slices staying open until 3:30 am on the weekends, you better believe that a ton of fun debauchery goes down at this great pizza spot. Sure, they have great cheese pizza here–but what you really wanna do when you’re hammered is try the world-famous Coney Island Pizza, which has Nathan’s famous hot dogs, french fries, mozzarella, and is drizzled with ketchup, mustard and relish. It might sound gross to you right now, but just wait until your drunk personality has something to say about it. You’ll be thanking COED later. (Photo: Facebook)

McGill University

Where you’re eating: Chef on Call

What you’re getting: The Basic

Follow on: Facebook | Twitter

Montreal is a beautiful place to go to college. You don’t have to be 21 to drink, and it sports some of the best strip clubs (or so we’re told) in the world. The students also have the infamous Chef on Call. Everything at this place is phenomenal–but the go-to for when you’re stumbling in has got to be “The Basic.” We’re talking about a 1/3 pound beef patty topped with mixed greens, ketchup, mustard, and an awesome garlic mayo spread. Feel free to add whatever insane stuff you want to it. (Photo: Blogspot)

New York University

Where you’re eating: Artichoke Basille’s Pizza

What you’re getting: The Artichoke Slice (duh)

Follow on: Facebook | Twitter

So let’s say that New York City is the place you go to if you never actually want to grow up. The city is full of 30-year-olds who pretend that they’re 22 every single night of the week. It’s like Never Never Land for people who love to party–so there’s also about a million places to get drunk munchies every night of the week. However, for the students of NYU, there is one standout with several convenient locations in both Greenwich and East Village.

That would be Artichoke Basille’s Pizza, home of the legendary Artichoke slice. This slice takes everything you love about cheesy artichoke dip and combines it with pizza for a total food-gasm.  The place is open late, and all the locations are usually packed with lines out the door–so expect a wait, but it’s well worth it. (Photo: Seamless)

Where you’re eating: Time-Out

What you’re getting: Cheddar Chicken Biscuit

Time-Out restaurant in Chapel Hill is home to one of the most famous sandwiches in America: The Cheddar Chicken Biscuit. It’s pretty much exactly what you think it is: an amazing biscuit with fresh fried chicken and topped with melted cheddar cheese. It’s simple, but also perfect because of the ingredients used. Sometimes less is better–and in this case, you won’t be sorry when you wolf down one, two or (let’s be real here) three of these treats super late at night.  (Photo: RSVLTS)

A student favorite here is the  Dixie “Hubba-Hubba,” which is made using O’Betty’s homemade chili sauce, fresh diced onions, aged cheddar cheese, and stadium mustard. The best part? It’s only 3 dollars. Eat up because your stomach needs that coating. (Photo: Facebook)

What you’re getting: Lacumba’s Nuclear Nachos

It’s 1:30 am and you’re absolutely sloshed and walking around your Oklahoma campus. Do you go home and make ramen or do you go and scarf down some of the best nachos in America? Hmm, tough decision. Lacumba’s Nuclear Nachos are topped with chili, diced red onions, cheddar, and Monterey Jack cheeses and jalapeño peppers. This drunk food is no joke, so enjoy and make sure you’re washing it down with plenty of water. The sandwiches here are world famous, as well. (Photo: OK gazette)

Penn State University

Where you’re eating: Are U Hungry

What you’re getting: Fat Bitch

Follow on: Facebook | Twitter

Are U Hungry is home of the now famous “Fat Sandwiches.” Those sandwiches are perfectly named, too, because these are huge monsters with fries on them. The #1 seller is the “Fat Bitch,” and might count as sandwich perfection. It has steak, chicken fingers, American cheese, fries, mayo–and it’s all topped off with ketchup. You probably shouldn’t end every drunk night with this, but maybe once a month you can indulge in this insane sandwich. Eh, screw it. Go every night. Just make sure and try and live healthy the next day. (Photo: Tumblr)

Rutgers University

Where you’re eating: RU Hungry Grease Truck

What you’re getting: The Fat Romano

Follow on: Facebook 

Rutgers University is known for a lot of things–but perhaps it’s best known for insanely huge and unhealthy sandwiches from the college’s amazing grease trucks. RU Hungry is the original of those fine establishments, and has been clogging arteries for some time now. Expect this truck to be poppin’ all night long. All the sandwiches are masterpieces, but the Fat Romano is on another planet. It boasts cheese steak, egg, pork roll, french fries, lettuce, tomato, mayo, and ketchup. Yep, now you wish you went to Rutgers. (Photo: Business Insider)

Add those toppings and drink your beer, because this burger heaven won’t last forever. (Photo: Facebook)

If you’re not in the mood for pizza, you’ve got unlimited options of tacos and BBQ throughout Austin–but if you’re feeling like having some of the most creative and tasty pizza out there, then look no further than this mecca.

Sure, you’re in New Orleans, and you have unlimited Po’ Boys, Red Beans and Rice, and all the stews you can get your hands on–but what the drunken kids of Tulane really desire is what most drunk college students want: pizza. The best specialty pizza on this New Orleans’ menu has to be the Meat Madness, with pepperoni, meatball, Italian sausage, bacon and Canadian bacon. For the vegetarians out there, even a simple cheese slice at this place tastes better than most pizza in America. (Photo: Facebook)

When you’ve got “gyro” in your name–well, you better hope that your gyro is pretty damn good. Parthenon sure lives up to its name. The Greeks know what’s up, too, because a drunk gyro might be one of the best things on earth. What’s better than a gyro sandwhich, though? Try a Mega Gyro Sandwich, which is basically two gyros in one, but topped sky-high with premium lamb and beef and fresh spices on warm grilled pita bread that’s then topped with fresh onions, sprinkled parsley, tomatoes, and delicious homemade cucumber garlic sauce. Are you salivating yet? We thought so.  (Photo: Panoramio)
