I'm not sure what the usage of の in this sentence is?

でかい業務用冷蔵庫を開けりゃ何でもある。 何でも食い放題飲み放題。

と makes sense to me as in「何でも食い放題と飲み放題」but why is の used here instead?

I couldn't find a definition for this in dictionaries, but I think this の is an emphatic listing particle. It's used between two similar words that describe a quality or state of something. It's typically used between two mimetic words (example), but it can be used with other na-/no-adjectives.

  • イベントは最高の最強だった。
  • 最低の最悪な話を聞いた。
  • 服が泥まみれの埃まみれになっている。
  • こちらのパンは焼きたての熱々です。
  • ガチのマジで危なかった。
  • 本気の本気で頑張ります。
    (The same word is used twice for emphasis)

の is used to enumerate verbs and adjectives and 食い放題の飲み放題 enumerates two adjectives: 食い放題 and 飲み放題.
