There are only two main parties when it comes to politics. 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

Come hither, vegans, Columbus has got you on guilt free ‘za with this traditional wood-fired spot.
Mikey’s Late Night Slice

This is the definitive drunk staple.
Hounddog’s Three Degree Pizza

Tacos– Pizza’s favorite drunk cousin

Giant margarita + free chips and salsa + patio = perfect dose of Vitamin D and Vitamin tequila.
