Slideshow: Staff Picks: Favorite Late Night Pizza in College

Georgetown: Philly Pizza
Georgetown: Philly Pizza
My generation's go-to Georgetown spot has actually closed since I graduated. "Philly-P" aka Philadelphia Pizza just off M Street, where they stocked multi-gallon jugs of Ranch dressing for dipping and went through many jugs each weekend (a frightening thought). You'd cram in there and order your tongue-scorching slice then either inhale it inside or loiter up the lane. It's probably for the best that they closed though it does make me wonder where all the Hoya kids are getting their drunkard slices these days. Erin Zimmer

Dartmouth College: Everything But Anchovies
Dartmouth College: Everything But Anchovies
Drunk pizza near Dartmouth College? It has to be the pies from Everything But Anchovies (aka, EBA's). It's the first place I ever came across barbecue sauce on a pizza, and a look at the menu makes it appear that they've upped the ante with a "Steak Bomb" pizza that includes A1 Steak Sauce. The pies themselves must get pressed into those pizza pans with little holes on the bottom, because the undercarriage of an EBA's pizza develops these crisp, little nubbins. Say what you will about their toppings or their pie-making technique, the pies always came with plenty of cheese, and EBA's offered some of the only late-night delivery around. David Kover

Yale: A-1
Yale: A-1
My favorite drunk slice in New Haven is the regular slice from A-1. Sure, I mainly went because of its great location and the fact that it's open 24 hours, but those super greasy slices sop up the alcohol like no other. The slices do have a nice cheese to crust to sauce ratio, making them way better than bland, bloated crust pizzas from Yorkside (No hard feelings, I still love your avegolemono soup). Carrie Vasios

Syracuse University: Acropolis Pizza House
Syracuse University: Acropolis Pizza House
Nothing caps off an epic evening of Marshall Street debauchery than the greasy, Greek-style pizza at Acropolis. An argument can be made for nearby Cosmo's having the more memorable slice, what with its spicy tomato sauce and shatter-on-impact crisp crust, but we're not talking about memorable, are we? We're talking about the opposite of that, in fact—and when it comes to easing your way out of an unforgettably forgotten night via scalding slices overflowing with tangy mozz (and a cheap beer in hand for one last boozey hurrah), there's no better place to get the job done than Acropolis.

University of Iowa : The Airliner
University of Iowa : The Airliner
One of Iowa City's favorite bars just happens to serve one of Iowa City's favorite late-night-drinking pies. (Coincidence?) Select your pie of choice on one of three different crust styles: "Regular" crust, New York thin, or Chicago deep-dish. Slices are available during lunch hours, but you can order whole pies until they close at 2am. The later it gets, the better the Airliner Taco Pizza looks, with its corn chips on top and a side of sour cream and salsa. Todd Brock

Skidmore College: Esperanto
Skidmore College: Esperanto
If I kept my bedtime hours now (ie before 2am) Pope's pizza would be my pick. But in Saratoga the bars are open late and Esperanto is on the main drinking drag of Caroline Street. I usually went for a doughboy but walked away with one of their slices—the details of which I can't seem to recall so clearly Meredith Smith

Princeton: Villa Pizza
Princeton: Villa Pizza
Okay, I would never claim that Villa Pizza is good pizza. There's a branch of this chain in the ground-floor student center food court, and as it's open until 3am on weekends (and it's only place other than convenience store WaWa—sorry, "The Wa"—that is), it's pretty much the most popular thing going.

Here's the thing. Get a slice for lunch, and it's just on this side of serviceable. The crust is a little stiff, the cheese a little gluey. But get a slice at 2:30am on a Friday and not only will your inebriation make it seem better, but the insane pizza turnover—pies are coming out of the oven every minute, and cut up and slices flung across the counter just as quickly—that you're getting a melty, drippy, too-hot-to-eat slice every time. Which is all I really want in late-night pizza. Carey Jones

MIT: Hi-Fi
MIT: Hi-Fi
I bear no responsibility for any sort of physical distress that consuming a 3AM slice of pizza from Hi-Fi Pizza and Subs on the MIT side of Central Square might cause you based on this endorsement. To be honest, I barely remember ever having eaten there, though I'm sure that I have, as I've found the receipts buried in my sheets and telltale grease-stained paper plates flecked with red pepper and parmesan dust in an unceremoniously deposited pile on my floor the morning after. It's like waking up next to a stranger and thinking to yourself, "my god, man, what have I done?" One time I even made the mistake of reintroducing myself to the one-nighter slice before breakfast (or rather, it rather forcefully reintroduced itself to me), but it was not a pleasant experience. These days, neither I nor my GI tract have the capacity to engage in such frivolous, carefree, and—frankly—dangerous debauchery any more, but we all have our moments of... experimentation in college, don't we?
