March Madness 2012: America’s Best Drunk College Food


4. Colorado State: Fat Doobie

Chicken fingers, french fries, onion rings and mozzarella sticks — all drizzled in honey mustard and placed on a footlong hero.

3. Iowa State: Super Dog

Two hot dogs, one bun. Crushed potato chips, garlic-cilantro sauce, pineapple sauce, mustard, ketchup and crispy strips of bacon go on top. Finally, two slices of Monterrey jack cheese are placed over it all, and the whole thing is baked until perfectly gooey-melty-crisped.

2. Iona: The French Burger

All the flavors of French onion soup; none of the feeling that you’re eating something as lame as soup. A half-pound burger topped with caramelized onions, melted mozzarella and parmesan, and served on two thick slices of Texas toast.

1. University of California: Tempura Mac and Cheese

In the epicenter of all things healthy and organic, UC-Berkeley delivers a surprise winner. But how can you argue with deep-fried mac and cheese?

    Not to quibble, but the submission for Ohio is mislabeled as Athens, Georgia, rather than Athens, Ohio. (My fiance is an OU alum and remembers the dogs fondly!)

    St. Mary’s is wrong. You mistakenly chose the one in San Antonio when the one that made the tournament is in Moraga, CA

    d’oh! Embarrassed. So what should St. Mary’s of California’s food be?

    San Diego State might not win the tournament, but at least they have the hottest girls and best stoner food.

    #56 O’Betty’s It’s Athens, Ohio, not Athens, Georgia.

    Next mission of this new Austinite: find those short rib cheese fries and devour them. Preferably while wasted. Shouldn’t be too hard.

    You picked the right place but the wrong item at O’Betty’s. Everyone knows that the Matahari dog with garlic fries is the way to go.
