25. Denny's - Washington State University
From the outside, one would assume this is just your average Denny's. Little do passers by know that this fine establishment has a full bar, including $.75 well whiskeys, $1 Kokanee's, $1.50 Mimosas (if that's your thing.... but still cheaper than ordering a full glass of OJ) One whiskey-sour not good enough for you? You can order a pitcher! I repeat! A pitcher of Whiskey-Sour!
Its not uncommon for one to have all three meals of the day there... Essentially, no point in leaving with such outrageous deals on booze!
Where else can you get a screwdriver that's cheaper than a glass of orange juice? Combine a greasy breakfast meal with 75 cent well drinks to kick that hangover's ass, and start in on tomorrow's headache.
As an establishment, Denny's is one of those things that's so shitty, it's beyond glorious. This also defines many aspects of college life. The fact that this is a super alcohol-infused Denny's puts this one over the edge.
Recommended Food Stuffs: Denver Omelette, Mini-Burgers
24. Brunswick Diner - Bowdoin College
This place has the best breakfast food for anybody that is living on campus. Giant sausage, bacon, double egg, triple cheese sandwiches that always hit the spot. Add a little hash browns on the side and you are good to start drinking again. Also Donna and Hillary are some great women who know how to cook my breakfast.
Personal service and first-name recognition is crucial in any breakfast spot. It's easy to tell this place is brimming with it's own strain of endearingly brash New Englandism, and appears to have the menu to back that up. Smaller town New England is notorious for acting like the 1600's and closing EVERYTHING late at night, so the 24 hour thing is a lot bigger than it may seem.
Recommended Food Stuffs: Corned beef hash, milkshakes, lobster roll, Brunswick Burger.
23. Coliseum Deli (Col Del) - Hofstra University
Cheap egg sammies, greasy potatoes, and the Mix. Oh and they deliver breakfast. No need to leave your house while mid hangover!
You had us at "they deliver."
Recommended Food Stuffs: The Gladiator Plate, Mix - half lemonade, half tea
22. Jacks 'N Joe - University of Southern California
Breakfast all day, so you can wake up whenever you feel like and go grab your must have hangover breakfast. They also have the best motherfuckin pancakes on face of this earth.
Must haves are the "Fight Ons", which have bacon inside the pancake batter, and pretty much anything else you can find on the menu. You won't be disappointed.
Founded by a husband and wife after turning tragedy into a truly heartwarming story (see above), and the definition of a Bro spot if there ever was one. Dope spot to chill, and really a "home away from home." A plea to always Fight On.
Recommended Food Stuffs: Fight Ons, "7 Minutes in Heaven" French Toast
21. Hamburg Inn No. 2 - University of Iowa
The quintessential college-town eatery, which just happens to serve unreal breakfast food. Opens at 6:30 AM, and the bar next door (IC Ugly's) opens even earlier so you can continue boozing while you wait for a table. A waitress will fetch you from the bar when its time to be seated. And oh yeah, its been around for 50+ years, and it is basically a must-stop for prospective presidential candidates.
The key to the heart of America's heartland? We think so. An old-timey establishment that's going as strong as ever, no one does a wholesome Midwestern breakfast quite like the 'Burg.
Recommended Food Stuffs: The Iowa (grilled ham, hash browns and American cheese), Hawkeye Hog (sausage, hash browns and American cheese smothered in country gravy.)
20. Tudor's Biscuit World - West Virginia University
The sandwiches are $5 at max with all the options(literally whatever you want) you can get on a sandwich....not to mention the buttermilk biscuits are made every morning and are the size in width of a bagel but much bigger....its a solid meal for the hungover and broke ass college kid
You can't be the number one party school in America without having a solid place to recharge the following morning. Consider this the school's partying equivalent of mother that supplies necessary dorm items you'd otherwise never get--you never necessarily realize how crucial that aspect is until it's not there. No shot WVU goes as hard without some great breakfast.
Recommended Food Stuffs: Creativity is encouraged.
19. Booeymonger - Georgetown University
Underclassmen visit on occasion, but upperclassmen fucking live here. Weekends packed with the sweatpant Bros swapping war stories from the night before, often having to do with the slam sitting on the other side of the room. Maybe known more for their cheap pitchers and great lunch/dinner sandwiches, but the breakfast is damn near unbeatable. Very friendly staff, and water provided. Everyone goes to Booeys.
Dude is pretty much on point. Spent many, many a hungover morning here, and miss it dearly. Wide variety of options, breakfast or lunch. The thick fries are particularly satisfying for the hungover Brohemoth.
Recommended Food Stuffs: Booeys Breakfast Platter, Miami Burger (Bagel w/ Lox)
18. Village Coffee Shop - University of Colorado (Boulder)
If it is your first time there and you tell the waiter they announce to the entire place that you are a village virgin! The place is always slammed and its first come first serve on seating so it is always a battle of the hungover college students and the old regulars there. The food is nice and greasy so perfect for that hangover
The restaurant is the size of my apartment living room, but serves some of the best breakfast in Boulder. It's a low-key diner right down the street from campus, making it the perfect spot to go after consuming large amounts of alcohol.
The best two items at the Village are the pancakes and hash browns, by far. The pancakes are the size of your head, and the hash browns are doused with liquid butter. The bacon is also better than most places - it's thick-cut and marinated with maple syrup before frying...
A place with strong camaraderie and a penchant for heavy lines for heavy appetites is our kind of place. Should probably be higher on the list honestly, though there's another Big Boulder spot you'll see a bit later on...Colorado breakfast was always a high point, but now that a certain substance is legal for use? Easy joke, but a very applicable one.
Recommended Food Stuffs: Chicken Fried Steak, Denver Omelette, Syrup-Infused Bacon
17. Gateway Diner - SUNY Albany
The Gateway has been the hangover diner of choice for Albany students for years. Any Saturday or Sunday morning, the place is serving dozens of students who are craving their enormous pancakes, and greasy bacon to cope with their hangovers. It's kind of a retro type diner but nothing over the top. They have a room in the back with large tables to accommodate parties of any size. Gotta be careful though because there's a good chance you will probably see your slam from last night. And finally, they have the dankest cakes and cannoli.
A great diner for some great Danes. Plays to its strengths and knows what it does best. The Breakfast spot equivalent of Jason Kidd the past few years. He's the glue for the whole school, which would be a lot worse off without it.
