Satisfying a craving always brings a sense of relief and joy only a slice of pizza or copious amounts of chocolate can. Factor in a (responsible) night at Two Keys, Tin Roof or your frat party of choice, and satisfying a craving for greasy deliciousness is a requirement. Whether you’re crashing with friends and need something delivered ASAP or have faith in the UberEats, Tapingo and GrubHub systems, these restaurants are the cure to your drunken ailments.
What would freshman year frat parties be without an XL order of cheese sticks to end the night? If you’ve never indulged in this cheesy masterpiece and Mad Mush staple, get on it immediately. With a variety of dipping sauces to choose from, you can spice up the flavor profile if melted cheese is too basic for you. Pro tip: Top off the cheese sticks with bacon.

If time is of the essence, Jimmy John’s is by far your best bet. (If you’re under the impression that a sandwich won’t satisfy your hunger, you’re wrong.) If you’re unconvinced, just call and order their “meat sandwich,” which will be delivered as fast as promised. Open until well after the bars close, you can count on their variety and speed to fulfill your needs.

Goodfellas (Inside of Two Keys)
There is no way you can go to Two Keys without stopping for a garlic breadstick or slice of pizza. What makes this a top spot to cure the ‘drunchies’ is the fact that it is located inside the bar, making it a perfect place to pit stop before jumping in your Uber.

Feeling ambitious? If you’re on the north side of campus, head to Euclid Kroger, open 24-hours as well, and pick up whatever strikes your fancy. A personal favorite of mine, Pizza Rolls and sour cream and onion chips, is an affordable snack that will put you right to sleep.
