There are only two main parties when it comes to politics and similarly, there are only two main parties when it comes to drunk food after Ohio State football games; pizza and tacos.
Here’s your map to the best ‘za and ‘cos (is that a thing?) within walking distance of the Shoe:
Pizza– The grand daddy of drunk food
265 W 11th Ave
There is singular moment of englightenment in each of our lives when the world just makes sense. For us, it was the first time we shoveled a slice of Adriatico’s Sicilian Style piece of pepperoni pizza in our mouths.
1195 N High St
Come hither, vegans–Columbus has got you on guilt free ‘za with this traditional wood-fired spot.
Mikey’s Late Night Slice
1030 N High St
This is the definitive drunk staple.
Hounddog’s Three Degree Pizza
2657 N High St
Pro tip: You either get Smokin’ Joe’s crust or you screwed up.
75 W 11th Ave
Ask your college student kid to tell you a story about Catfish…We’re sure they’ll turn bright red and have no idea what you’re talking about.
174 W Lane Ave
We guarantee there will be a wait but we guarantee it’ll be worth it.
Tacos– Pizza’s favorite drunk cousin
2321 N High St
Giant margarita + free chips and salsa + patio = perfect dose of Vitamin D and Vitamin tequila
199 Chittenden Ave
If you don’t know what an empanada is, it’s essentially a deep-friend savory donut stuffed with cheese, meats, and other goodies. Holy yum.
1542 N High St
Nachos, burritos, fajitas, enchiladas, churros, oh my!
2553 N High St
Sometimes a $2 Cheesy Gordita Crunch is all you need.
