• The Best Hangover Food Cures in Hoboken

    Written by:

    With all the fine-dining restaurant options in Hoboken, sometimes, you just need some pure guilt. No, not guilt-free — greasy, guilty, goodness. And thankfully, we’ve got a bunch of spots in the Mile Square that offer just that. When you’re feeling naughty and craving some good ol’ junk food to nurse your hangover, check out some of these spots around town:


    Cheesesteaks from Midtown Philly Steaks {523 Washington Street}

    There’s no need to travel to Philly if you’re craving an authentic cheesesteak — Midtown Philly Steaks is whipping up some pretty darn good ones. The options at Midtown Philly Steaks are endless — from a classic steak to pizza, California, and beyond, they have it all. If you’re really feeling crazy, try the Garlic Bread Cheesesteak — enough said. {Stay tuned for our post on Midtown Philly Steaks, coming soon!}

    Wings from Cluck U Chicken {112 Washington Street}

    Cluck U Chicken is definitely a go-to late-night spot {and it’s located downtown, in the midst of the bar scene}. But no matter what time of day it is, Cluck U can surely satisfy that buffalo-wing craving. Get your wings boneless, bone-in, or as mini bites with your choice of sauce. They’ve got killer sides too, from mac and cheese to fries.

    Mac & Cheese from Pizza Republic {406 Washington Street}

    If you thought Pizza Republic was most known for their pizza — think again {although it’s pretty darn good, too}. They also call themselves the “Mac Daddy of Hoboken” — and with 22 different mac + cheese dishes on the menu, we have to agree with that title. From the classic to Buffalo chicken to white truffle and even spinach + artichoke mac + cheese, this is not your regular pizza spot.

    S#it Faced Pizza from Tony Boloneys {263 1st Street}

    Tony Boloney’s serves up some of the most unique pizza creations in our area {like the jumbo pizza bagel, taco pizza, vodka sauce pizza + ramen pizza} and is the town’s go-to spot for a guilty, {+ insta-worthy} meal. Out of the many creations TB’s has to offer, one that we can’t get enough of {+ one that’s on the menu all the time} is the S#itfaced pizza — beer battered chicken, homemade honey stout BBQ sauce, mozzarella, and cheddar. Whether you’re s#hitfaced or not, this pizza is always a good idea.

    If you’re grabbing a drink at the Madison with a friend and need something to nosh on — look no further than French Onion Soup Dumplings {yes, we’re serious}. This unique and oh so delicious appetizer is something to brag about — and we dare you to just order one. Seriously — this app is addicting and all French onion soup lovers alike will appreciate it.

    Waffle Fries with Cheese and Gravy from Mr. Wraps {741 Garden Street}

    Mr. Wraps is an #HGFave for casual dining and delivery — and while their wraps are super huge and filling, sometimes you can’t help but get an extra treat on the side. They have a bunch of yummy appetizers {jalepeño poppers, mac + cheese, mozzarella sticks, + more}, but one that shines for us is their waffle fries with cheese and gravy. If you’re a true New Jerseyian, you know the deal — and Mr. Wraps is super generous with the mutz + gravy, making it one of our fave disco fries in town.

    Mac & Cheese Burger from The Ainsworth {310 Sinatra Drive}

    Two cravings at once = no problem. The Ainsworth’s Mac & Cheese Burger has a beef patty, fried mac & cheese patty, AND mac & cheese, all between a sesame bun. Author’s note: this is SO good but definitely a very guilty, guilty pleasure. You will feel like you’re rolling out onto Sinatra Drive after eating this bad boy.

Not only is the wrap huge and filling, but it’s simply delish.
