The 10 best OKC Metro restaurants when you’re hungover

Whether you’re a seasoned professional or you just had your first sip at church camp, drinking is serious business. And perhaps even more serious is the business of recovering after you’ve had a little too much to drink. Sure, a lot of foods in the OKC Metro are deep-fried, and thus perfect for the severely hungover, but you’re a discerning person. Only the best will do!

So, without further ado, I give you the list of the 10 best places in the OKC Metro to help cure your hangover.



Chelino’s is definitely my go-to hangover food. You can start with some buttery flour tortillas dipped in cheese sauce. Carbs and cheese are kind of like the culinary equivalent of activated charcoal. Then, you need to order the chilaquiles norteños. Strips of corn tortillas fried in butter, tossed in a red sauce and topped with melted cheese and fried eggs--it’s everything your body needs to get going after one too many drinks.




If your hangover has left you in the sort of state that requires you not to leave your car, get yourself to the nearest Braum’s drive thru. You can get biscuits and gravy if they’re still serving breakfast, or crinkle-cut fries and a bacon cheeseburger if they aren’t. Either way, you can totally get some sort of shake or malt to go with your food, which is just the right amount of sugar to get your brain back to work after you functionally poisoned yourself the night before.


Greek House

Greek House

So, one of the best things about living in Norman is Greek House. Not only do they serve obscenely portioned gyros sandwiches, but they also deep fry their fries in the gyros grease. It’s everything I could ever want. And what makes this place especially good for hangover relief is that they open at 10:30 AM on weekends, so if you need to put something on top of all those shots from the night before, they’re ready to help.


jimmy's egg

Jimmy’s Egg

Sometimes, you just need a big breakfast to get yourself back in business. I recommend the Biscuit Debris or Jimmy’s Garbage Breakfast, but you really can’t go wrong with any options. Just know that this is not the day to order an egg white omelet with a side of fruit or cottage cheese. This is the day that you get all the full fat and bread options you can.


chuck house

Chuck House

Chuck Wagon is great because regardless of whether you subscribe to the gravy method  or the deep fried method of hangover relief, this place has you covered. For those who require gravy, get yourself a chicken fried steak meal with gravy and mashed potatoes. For those who want only deep fried, get yourself a chicken fried steak sandwich and onion rings. I’m not ashamed to say that there was a time when the Chuck Wagon on NW 10th started cooking my order the minute I walked up. Those were the days.


Beverly's pancake house

Beverly’s Pancake House

Like I said above, a good greasy breakfast is the way to go in the event of a hangover. And if you’re near NW Expressway and Independence, then Beverly’s is a good play to go. Just make sure you pile up your plate with as many fried options as possible. And hell, if you’re the adventurous type, get yourself some fried chicken livers and gizzards. They’re sure to cure you, but I don’t know if you want that while you’re hungover.


ann's chicken fry

Ann’s Chicken Fry

Anne’s is the sort of place that feels like it came right out of the past and like maybe the folks of Pleasantville ate there and managed to not gain weight at all. You can get yourself some burgers, chicken fried steak, a polish sausage sandwich--basically anything that is covered in grease. Also, they have fried okra which you know is good the day after one too many drinks.


golden palace

Golden Palace

There’s nothing like a good Chinese buffet to help you get back to feeling like a human after a night of hard drinking, and luckily, there are two Golden Palaces in the metro on opposite ends of south 15th Street. You can fill up on all the deep fried goodies like egg rolls or crab rangoon (served in a delightful taquito-like form!), or get yourself in line for the Mongolian barbecue. Either way, you’re going to feel a million times better after you eat there.


Waffle House

Waffle House (preferably on Memorial and Western)

I've got a soft spot in my heart for this place. There have been many post-Wolf Trap waffles consumed here. Sure, a Waffle House is a Waffle House, but I can say without a doubt that this place is the Waffle Housiest. Plus, waffles slathered in butter and syrup with a side of bacon are exactly what you need if you need to get your head on straight.




There are apparently people who eat at this place on purpose when they are not drunk or hungover. I don’t know what that’s all about because all the civilized folks I know ONLY go there when there is a medical necessity. There’s just something about hearing that old man who narrates the commercials listing the ingredients in the back of your head while you’re downing your burger that lets you know you’re going to be okay.
