Syracuse University is known for the smartest drunks on the East Coast. But how do these drunks satisfy their hunger in the tundra we call home? Well, we get the best drunk food known to man. Whether it be greasy, sweet, or absolutely disgusting, we eat it all even though our bodies always regret it the next day.
7.) Dinosaur BBQ:
A Syracuse tradition, Dinosaur BBQ is the only place on this list that you can come out of drunker than you came in. After going HAM on some ribs, you’ll look like you were in a war, and the ribs won. This food is delicious sober or drunk and you won’t regret coming here after a few brews.
Recommendation: Rack of ribs with mac and cheese and mashed potatoes.
If you can make the taxi trip all the way to Erie Boulevard, then Denny’s is the place to go. Do your best Ron Swanson impression and eat a copious amount of breakfast food at 2a.m. There’s a 50/50 chance you get sick, but you won’t mind at the time.
Recommendation: Quesadillas, no really, most underrated quesadillas in CNY.
5.) Insomnia Cookies:
It’s 3a.m. and you just need a cookie. Well, Insomnia Cookies has you covered. The best part about ordering late-night Insomnia is getting extra cookies. There’s no chance they have the 14 chocolate chip cookies for you this late at night, but they will make it up for you by giving you a shit-ton of random cookies just when you needed them most.
Recommendation: Snickerdoodle/Literally anything they sell.
4.) Funk N Waffles:
Funk N Waffles is one of the best places on Earth. Music, waffles, and alcohol are three things that go together, always. As Kendrick says, “The funk will be within you” and you will be ecstatic once the Funk N Waffles are within you. No matter what, you’ll have a great time every single time you step into here.
Recommendation: Chocolate City Waffle
Greece may be in a crisis but Acropolis is not. Acropolis has everything you could ask for late at night. It has wings, subs, fried everything, and beer. It even has a great location right on Marshall Street, just watch out for the DJ’s crowd coming out, you can never trust a DJ’s patron.
Recommendation: Mozzarella sticks and fried pickles.
Calzones, calzones, calzones. Calios is the holy grail of drunk food. You can literally get anything your inebriated brain can think of in a calzone. You want mac n cheese, mashed potatoes, and ranch in a calzone? Well go ahead! Sober you may hate yourself the next day, but drunk you will be as happy as can be, and who even likes sober you?
Recommendation: CBR Calzone
1.) Kimmel Food Court:
Kimmel Food Court is the best place on God’s green Earth. If you haven’t gotten shitfaced and left a party to go to Kimmel, you aren’t doing Syracuse right. With Trio’s, Häagen-Dazs, Queso’s and Sbarro you literally don’t need to ever go anywhere else. Kimmel is a drunk person’s oasis and is hands down the best place in Syracuse to grab your drunk food.
Recommendation: Everything, get everything.
