|The Grim Burger: It's what's for (breakfast, lunch, and) dinner.|
Close runner up: The spicy-as-all hell Firehouse Burger
Too hungover to decide what to eat? How about breakfast? And lunch? And dinner? Well slap our ass and call us Sally! You can have all three with just one bite of Lankford's Grim Burger.
Topped with bacon and eggs (breakfast), mac and cheese (lunch), and jalapeño (another part of lunch?), this burger (dinner) is as gooey, juicy, and luscious as can be.
It is hands-down one of the best hangover helpers in the city -- mostly because you'll be too busy wiping grease off of your chin to remember you feel like shit.
2. Bacon-Infused Bloody Mary, Beaver's
The Bloody Mary is a hangover staple. Not only will its tomato juice give your achy body a natural boost of vitamins and minerals, but the drink helps to rehydrate while simultaneously giving you a slight buzz so you forget you're not in the best of shape. Sure, your body would probably react better if it were a virgin drink, but what's the fun in that? We mean, hair of the dog, right?
Beaver's bloody mix is a tantalizing blend of tomato juice, bruised celery, garlic, wasabi, lime, hot sauce and spices. There are just so many nutrients in there, you guys.
But the best part is that you can choose which liquor you'd like it mixed with; we're partial to the bacon-infused vodka or smoked whiskey.

Sometimes when you are hungover, you need that delicate balance of grease, protein, and complete bomb of starch that only Tex-Mex can provide. Enter cheese enchiladas -- a gift from los dioses.
Pro tip: Do yourself a favor and add a fried egg if its available -- it'll ease the hangover, after all.
