For those familiar with Christmas Vacation, there is a line about the holidays that rings very true. No, it's not when the old guy shouts "Squirrel!" It is during the heartfelt conversation between Clark Griswold and Clark Sr. When asked how the elder made it through the holidays, he humbly states: "I had a lot of help from Jack Daniels." During this time of year many of us imbibe a little too much from our old standbys. However, with the right plate of greasy spoon food, you can easily live to drink another day.

Where do you like to eat after a night of hard living? Check out our list below.

Al's Breakfast
(413 14th Ave. SE, Minneapolis; 612.331.9991)

You feel like you spent the night in the gutter, so why not spend the morning standing in an alleyway? Al's is a tiny diner with only 14 stools. Each weekend those that are hungry, patient, and even probably still a little drunk will wait outside for the opportunity to sit their butt on one of those spots. And the wait is worth it (Our tip: Bring some gas station coffee and chat up fun people while waiting in line). Order up the pancakes and you won't be disappointed. The batter is made on the hour with fresh buttermilk to meet customer demands. They're a little crunchy, a little tangy, and loaded up with syrup and butter, they're exactly the sort of sweet gut bomb you need. We recommend the walnut or blueberry varieties. (Photo by yomi955)

Huevos Rancheros
A little spiciness for breakfast is great for the pounding headache. We recommend the huevos racheros for maximum hangover kicking. What you'll get is two eggs atop lightly fried corn tortillas with spicy salsa mixed with strips of onion. Add fried potatoes, some chorizo, and some coffee and you have a breakfast of champions.(Photo by futurestreet)
