El Bucanero

Multiple locations, bucanerosanantonio.com
Hearty portions of your favorite ceviche, funky tostadas mixtas loaded with octopus, La Gran Pachanga — a 12-pack of your Mexican canned beer of choice topped with camarones ahogados — are all more than enough reason to take your visitor to El Bucanero (both locations, but we’re partial to the original) like yesterday.

Throw caution to the wind
Barbacoa and Big Red. Whataburger and Coke. McDonalds nuggets and orange soda. Yikes! This all sounds so gross. 1000mg ibuprofen lots of water and sleep, then shower and sleep more.

Help your future self
Set a large glass of ice and three Advil by your bed when you get home after a night of partying. When you wake up, you will have a glass of iced cold water within arms length. Take the advil, chug the water and sleep for another two hours. If you fail to prepare, prepare to fail.

Visit Jim’s
A big ol' meal at Jims, also lots of water and grapefruit juice.

Go cheesy
The basics: water, Advil, a not-too-heavy beer or two, and as many cheesy, greased-up carbohydrates as I can fit in my mouth.

Go green
Smoke a bowl. If that is not an option for you, sip a double shot of Fernet-Branca. In short, get some herbs up in ya.

Shower beer
Crack open a cold brew in the hot shower while you feel like lukewarm dog poo.

Street tacos
Avoid the hangover altogether - stuff your face at the taco stand outside of Hardbodies before you go home and drink a huge glass of water before you go to sleep. Let the greasy tacos soak up the alcohol while you sleep.

A greasy burger
Sometimes your only salvation is the between-the-buns marriage of ground chuck and half-melted cheese.

Pad Thai
Nothing kills a hangover at 2 in the afternoon like lime-covered pad Thai, thick with bean sprouts and tofu. Thai Topaz's version is featured here.

Chinese food
Chinese food is probably one of the great all-time hangover cures. Especially if it’s from the mall.

Green juice
Grassy Knoll from Urth Juice Bar or Mean Green from Revolucion, which both taste pretty good and are full of kale, spinach, and other healthy ingredients that replenish your body with nutrients. Also drinking a bottle of water and taking a B-12 tablet before going to bed.

Alka-Seltzer
Drop those tabs in a glass of water and slam that shit.

Chug a bloody mary
The salty, briny good stuff will give you enough energy for a second wind.

Hoover some menudo
It’s not for everyone, but it’s defeated many a cruda.
