The Best Hangover Cure Dishes in Atlanta
1. Bone Lick BBQ
The whole Bone Lick BBQ brunch menu is basically curated toward hungover diners. Try the smoked beef hash or the collard green frittata, or go straight for the hangover muff, sausage patty, pulled pork, tasso ham, bacon, cheese, and fried egg on an English muffin.
2. Elmyr Restaurant & Cantina
Burritos and bloody Marys. Get at it, y'all. Try the green burrito with broccoli, spinach, green chiles, jalapenos, and guacamoles; the pad thai burrito; or the breakfast burrito, if you like your hangover cures eggy. [Photo]
3. Fox Bros Bar-B-Q
The "Burger" at Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q's has brisket, pimento cheese, bacon, jalapeno mayo, tomato, and onion. What else do you need?
4. Holy Taco
Hungover? Head to Holy Taco, and the only decision you'll have to make is whether to order the chilaquiles, spicy stewed chicken and corn tortillas topped with an egg, or the East Atlanta restaurant's fried egg tostada with spicy pulled pork. [Photo]
5. Home Grown
Home Grown's comfy chicken biscuit with sausage gravy is pretty damn iconic. It's also many a local's go-to hangover cure. [Photo]
6. JCT Kitchen & Bar
The mac and cheese at JCT Kitchen comes with a healthy topping of bacon on top, so you have carbohydrates and protein in the cheesy dish. If you're going to be out anywhere on the Westside, make this your first stop and pick up an order to go. Pro tip: It's good cold, too.
7. Paper Plane
Decatur, GA 30030
If you're still hungover by 5 p.m., head to Paper Plane for the steak au poivre served in peppercorn jus. It's plated with butternut squash and celery root gratin, and bartender Paul Calvert— who knows his stuff— says it's warming and spicy. After all, "What's better than classic steak and potatoes when you're in a metaphysical rut?"
8. Pho Dai Loi 2
Atlanta, GA 30345
Chase your Advil with a big bowl of pho, and you won't be sorry. [Photo]
