Munch At: Chow down at The Meatball Shop, where you can get naked balls, balls in sandwiches, ball sliders, and even balls over salad. Try not to lose it over the word “balls.”

8. Pizza

Munch At: If you want to get fancy, it’s hard to beat Artichoke‘s classic artichoke slice. If all you need is cheese and carbs delivered in the cheapest package possible, find a dollar slice and get down.

9. Grilled Cheese

Munch At: You probably shouldn’t be near anything sharp or hot in your 4/20 state, so have your grilled cheese needs seen to at Melt Shop or Little Muenster.

10. Burritos

Munch At: Dos Toros isn’t serving ground-breaking Mexican food, but it’s solid and makes a nice change from Chipotle. Get baked, get burrito, win.

11. Anything at Smorgasburg

Munch At: Everywhere you possibly can. You can’t go wrong with anything at Smorgasburg‘s gluttonous paradise. This might be the Holy Grail of high cuisine.

Munch At: There’s always Crif Dogs, but they don’t have the monopoly on wacky weiners. Los Perros Locos serves up seriously insane creations involving crushed Fritos, deep fried bacon cubes, and chili infused with beer and cocoa.

14. Falafel

Munch At: Given its proximity to NYU, there’s no doubt Mamoun’s has served its fair share of stoned students. They know what’s up.

15. Mac ‘n’ Cheese

Munch At: At the end of the day, there’s no better destination for stoner snacking than your local bodega. Chocolate covered pretzels? Yogurt raisins? Kraft mac ‘n’ cheese? The bodega has it all, just don’t get lost in the chips aisle giggling at the “Baked” Lays.
