A lot of restaurants serve dishes that were obviously dreamt up to appeal to customers battling a hangover. A few go so far as to put the word "hangover" right there in the name of the dish. We tried a few of these to see which, if any, did the trick.

Chef-O-Nette

2090 Tremont Center, Upper Arlington; chefonette.com

The Dish: Hangover, $2.75: A deluxe cheeseburger topped with a thick slice of grilled ham

The Premise: It's the old-fashioned version of a bacon cheeseburger. Chef-O-Nette prides itself as "home of the Hangover Sandwich," and indeed this is the granddaddy of hangover dishes in Columbus. Like, your grandfather probably ordered it at some point since the place opened in 1955.

Curative properties: The perfect alternative for those whose usual hungover routine involves a trip to McDonald's. Order it as a plate, with coleslaw and crinkle-cut fries, plus a fountain Coke.

Hang Over Easy

1646 Neil Ave., Campus; hangovereasy.com

The Dish: #9 The Ultimate Hangover Cure, $8.95. Two huge plates of food, including three eggs any style, your choice of three pancakes or three slices of French toast, two breakfast meats, home fries (called h.o.e. fries) and toast.

The Premise: Stuff yourself full of rich, fatty foods to soak up any alcohol that might be lingering behind. This Campus hangout is a great place to head when you're hungover, by the way. You know all those college kids are feeling it, too.

Curative properties: The mix of salty and sweet works remarkably well, even if all that greasy bacon and sausage is a bit much on a queasy stomach. The cinnamon-flecked brioche French toast is the best kind of carb overdose.

Easy Street Cafe

197 Thurman Ave., German Village; easystreetcafecolumbus.com

The Dish: The Hangover, $6.95. Bowl of home fries topped with chili, shredded cheese and two eggs

The Premise: The good old fat-salt-carb combo kicked up a notch with some spicy chili

Curative properties: The chili could use some more heat, but add a hit of hot sauce and you're headed in the right direction. The nice thing about Easy Street is it's also a full-fledged bar - so go ahead and indulge in a little hair-of-the-dog action with a similarly spicy Bloody Mary.
