Getting drunk and eating greasy, disgusting/amazing food is truly one of the greatest things that you can do as adult. Drunk food is a special thing that anyone can make, but only a few select restaurants, and diners across America know how to do it right make food that can fill you up and get you thinking straight. But what is the best American drunk food? Is it a box of chicken fingers and garlic bread from Florida? Or is it a pile of french fries covered in everything but the kitchen sink from San Diego? It’s all of that and everything in between. Come along on our cross country road trip through the cities who really know how to treat a burgeoning alcoholic.
It can be hard to find good drunk food. You don’t want to eat something that’s too greasy because you’ll end up puking your guts out, but you also don’t want to eat a salad after you just drank a gallon of whiskey and sang fifteen Elton John songs at an underground karaoke bar. When you’re drunk the food you eat has to be substantial, it should have something melted on top of it, and if it can come with extra sauce then you need to make that happen. Let’s take a look at the best drunk food in the good ol’ US of A.
What kind of late night drunk cuisine does your city have? And should it be included on this list? Leave us a comment if you think your city has what it takes.
At the Magnolia Cafe in Austin the best thing to order after you've been going HAM on 6th street is this good ol' fashioned plate of grilled potatoes smothered in cheese and green onions.
The thick-cut fries at Brooklyn's Extra Fancy are doused in a savory lobster bisque and covered in liberal handfuls of lobster meat. $18 never tasted so good.
LA is full of great food, but the only thing that can quench your drunk hunger is a bacon wrapped hot dog served by someone grilling on the sidewalk.
Some things are classics for a reason, and you can't go wrong with a philly cheesesteak. Just make sure you go to the right restaurant.
