Tackle post-OSU game hunger with these 10 walkable grub hubs

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

1618 Neil 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.

Paulie Gee’s
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.

Catfish Biff’s
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.

Tommy’s Pizza
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

Cazuela’s Grill
2321 N High St
Giant margarita + free chips and salsa + patio = perfect dose of Vitamin D and Vitamin tequila.

Dada Empanada
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.

Mad Mex
1542 N High St
Nachos, burritos, fajitas, enchiladas, churros, oh my!

Taco Bell
2553 N High St
Sometimes a $2 Cheesy Gordita Crunch is all you need.
