10. Hang Over Easy - The Ohio State University
The food at hang over easy is tailor made to cure hangovers and there is nothing quite like ordering a #4 (struggling to get up) or a #15 (green eggs and ham) after an epic night of drinking. the staff fully understands when you wear sunglasses when you're in the restaurant and embraces this behavior. you're compatriots can at times act like dicks mostly because they're just as hungover as you are and the place is always packed and unless you get there scary early theres usually a pretty long wait, but once you get in and get a seat the cure for your hangover will soon be at hand.
Their motto is "Breakfast Cures All," which is basically an automatic way to get into the top 10. Dishes are creatively named, and Columbus, Ohio is the center of America in so many ways (it's where all that consumer product testing shit goes down). The pulse of America beats for this place, and we can definitely get behind that.

9. Bodo's Bagels - University of Virginia
I have no idea why they're only in Charlottesville, they'd make a killing as a bigger franchise.
Very much the morning lifeblood of Cavs campus wide. Lines are huge, but moves amazingly fast. There's three of them in Cville, but the one most students go to is right on the Corner, which is where the main shops, bars, and hangouts are. Always pleasant and friendly, and tough to find a more satisfying hangover cure than Bodos.
I know a number of people who love this place irrationally. Seems to very much be a Charlottesville Institution. And efficiency with such a huge demand cannot be discounted.
Recommended Food Stuffs: Bagels. Go Crazy.
8. Al's Breakfast
Absolutely nothing beats Al's Breakfast when it comes to hangover food. Huge portions of greasy, made-from-scratch food, endless coffee, and an atmosphere you literally won't find anywhere else. The food is cheap as hell and tastes great, although I admit it isn't the best you'll ever eat. You go to Al's for the experience. Al's is a tiny, ten foot wide hole-in-the-wall place located in the heart of Dinkytown. Seriously this place is so small you'd walk past it and never know it was there...except for the line extending down the block on the weekends.
The staff is full of assholes, and I mean that in the best possible way. They're always yelling: at you, at other customers, at each other. They don't wait around waiting for you to pussyfoot around your order either. You either make your order when you sit down or sit around hoping you can flag them down as soon as you're ready.
I've been to 30 states and crossed the country twice this summer (lengthwise, none of that up and down bullshit), and Al's Breakfast is hands down the best breakfast joint I've found. Bar none. It's got great food, the best atmosphere, and prices any student will love.
All the makings of a legendary place. Hole in the wall, a demand that can't possibly fit the supply, and a high octane environment that makes you get on its level. We approve tremendously.
Recommended Food Stuffs: The Jose: Hash browns, homemade salsa, poached eggs, and cheese.
7. Rama Jama's
Location, location, location. Rama Jama's is located right across the street from Bryant-Denny Stadium--what more needs to be said?
Everything is very cheap, which helps if you've just checked your bank statement from the night before.
All sorts of very unique memorabilia and pictures adorn the walls. There are pictures or signatures of all the Alabama legends, as well as jerseys, shoes, helmets and even a part of the stadium. Good luck finding the bathroom your first time here
If you're coming to Tuscaloosa, have your fun the night before, but do not forget Rama Jama's the next morning.
Location is a tricky aspect in a lot these--sometimes, the allure of these spots is that it's completely worth it to travel 30 minutes in the middle of nowhere--it underscores the point that the griddle cakes are THAT good, and turns the whole thing into a pretty cool adventure. The opposite is true in this case, proving that in order to be truly dope at something, you've gotta break a few rules.
Recommended Food Stuffs: Go HAM with the Ham.
6. Penny Cluse
This place is more than a slice of hangover heaven. While the food is obviously beyond bomb-status, the people and the atmosphere amplify the shamelessness of last night's festivities.
Head down when you first wake up, put your name on the waiting list, go back to your place and pass back out, name stays on the list all day. Get lifted, walk down and breath some life back into the body
What puts this place over the top is the Bucket O' Spuds; crafty homefries with frighteningly addicting seasoning, topped with sour cream and chives. Shoveling that in your mouth is basically the hungover Bro's dream.
Recommended Food Stuffs: Bucket O' Spuds (extra egg on top), Fresh Squeezed Seasonal Juice,
5. Shortcakes Diner
It's an old diner that has been recognized for 30 years as being the place to go when you're hungover. It's like an ihop if ihop possibly sold meth. The food is greasy and tasty, it still smells like smoke, and no matter what you show up in nobody will judge you. Plus being over 24 hours a day, you can get day drunk and get this food at 3 am.
Shortcakes is more of a place you go at 4 in the morning instead of at 10 am. The food is pretty good but its more of the environment that makes it great. The building is old as shit (built in the 70's I believe) and your clothes will smell for a good month after eating there. It's almost a requirement to go there in the middle of the night in order to graduate from OSU.
The best part is everything is INCREDIBLY cheap. It's all under $6 which is great for people who don't have a bunch of money.
Oklahoma style breakfast has gotta be a treat for anyone, and unbeatable prices never hurt either. Ambience check, quality check, penchant for strange tradition, check.
Recommended Food Stuffs: You've gotta look at the name. Shortcakes. Get a shortcake (two pancakes)with sausage and a coffee. You'll be golden pony boy.
4. Towson Hot Bagel
THB has every best breakfast sandwich you can imagine on fresh baked bagels are ranging from $4-5. It is literally filled with hungover college students every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday mornings from 10am-2pm. With the best part about all of the hungover college students is the fact that 2/3 of them are incredibly hot girls all wearing yoga pants. There's plenty of outside tables to sit at which are especially nice during the spring and summer, good for having a bagel and talking to your friends about last night's adventures.
Perfect bagels, Breakfast sandwiches, and always packed full of hungover people from the night before. Most people still come in wearing the same thing they went out in last night.
Ain't nothing like the place you'll see the whole school. Whether it's girls coming back from early morning gym class, Bros rolling out of bed, or the same exact crop of people you had an extended convo with at the party last night but now ignore, it's tough to beat "That Place." Towson Hot Bagel is "That Place."
Recommended Food Stuffs: Any bagel/meat/cheese combo.
3. The Buff - University of Colorado (Boulder)
Uh it's fucking called The Buff, nuff said right there, and everyone eats there when they are hungover Saturday and Sunday mornings probably even on Fridays too.
I mean Obama ate there when he came not that I care, so it must be good right? I love the 'Two Step'
The Buff is a classic go-to in Boulder for any mile high hangover. If we are talking about food- it's one of the best breakfast places. Quick service and if you are waiting for a table, the bar is conveniently located at the entrance so you and your posse can grab a quick mimosa/bloody mary or 3 (for $0.99 I might add). Classic way to end a one-night-stand that doesn't want to walk of shame it home or if you just want to lay the ground work for round 2 the upcoming night. Oh, and even President Obama stopped by for for a visit more than once.
Anything off of their Southwestern Kick selection is always a good choice with hearty portions to feed a small African Village.
To be this awesome while competing with another dope breakfast spot on the same campus is not only impressive, but proof that breakfast is truly the most important (and therefore, best) meal of the day. That actually has zero basis in fact, but seems like something that needed to be said. Also, that guy may be too cool to get excited about an Obama visit, but if Obama visits a college breakfast spot, it's a pretty big-time college breakfast spot.
Recommended Food Stuffs: Saddlebags--their own special recipe pancakes infused with bacon, sausage, ham, or any combination of the 3.
2. Miss Shirley's Cafe - Loyola Maryland
With multiple locations in Baltimore, Miss Shirley's is the best breakfast spot. Its included on our meal plan and they serve up unbelievable breakfast and lunch with epic drinks on the side. It has a great reputation for a reason, Miss Shirleys is unmatched in breakfast
Its like right off campus and they accept our dining card so its our parent's money. The food is heavenly and the serving sizes are insane. They give enough food for at least 2 people and its insane.
Ranked as one of the best breakfast places in America, very short walk from school, hot waitresses. Food is absolutely delicious, and they take our Evergreen card, I mean...that's not even real money.
Best In Baltimore, open environment, awesome food
Tied for the most amount of student submissions, and for good reason--these kids are really dining it up on their parents dime. Crab cakes and football, but also crab cakes and breakfast for this Maryland hotspot. Last year, Baltimore Magazine readers ranked this savory spot number on in the area in both the "good deal" and "breakfast" categories. Note that were talking about an entire city here, and when you combine those two aspects, you've got yourself the perfect collegiate breakfast establishment.
Recommended Food Stuffs: Chicken & Waffles, Breakfast Sliders, Coconut French Toast, Cinnamon Danish Waffles, the list goes on.
1. Newark Deli and Bagel - University of Delaware
The perfect cure for even the worst hangovers, bacon egg and cheeses, homemade chicken salad, you name it. Easily the best breakfast option at Delaware. Sorority Girl Central also. There's bound to be at least 50 attractive girls wearing lettered shirts there at any time of the day.
Once referred to as "Sorority Bagel" by the UD Greek Life Director, this location is so popular with Greeks that one fraternity even used NDB as its theme for Airband two years ago. NDB is the only location in Delaware with good bagels.
Packed on Saturdays mornings before day drinks and again Sunday morning to help that mean hangover you earned because you drank a solid 12 hours straight if you didn't manage to pass out. Atmosphere and environment are solid because just about everyone in there is about to participate in the same weekend festivities or if its the weekdays, getting some food before/in between class.
As Bros across the land learn year after year, one of the toughest feats a person, place, or thing could ever accomplish is to completely satisfy a sorority girl. In fact, the task was previously thought impossible until Newark Deli and Bagel came along. Simple yet complex beyond measure, for a school that's arguably the most "college" of them all. It's a school landmark at this point and basically fulfills every characteristic necessary to be a truly great hungover establishment--satisfying food for a satisfying price, defies the simple notion of what it actually is (much more than a bagel place), has become sentimentally ingrained in the minds of thousands of Blue Hens, weirdly manages to keep last night's party going, is a place to be seen, and is arguably the single most unifying place on all of campus. Newark Deli Bagel does it all. NDB, NBD.
Recommended Food Stuffs: 'Taylor Ham Sandwich, Bacon Egg and Cheese on Toasted Bagel, Sausage Egg and Cheese on Toasted Bagel, Homemade Chicken Salad with lettuce, tomato, onions, and cucumbers on toasted bagel. Also the scooped out options for fans of that bagel method.
