Soaking up your alcohol is no longer a job left to substandard pizza and burger chains. Check out these hot spots that keep their fires burning until the wee hours so your crew can eat, drink and be merry—no matter when or where you are on the map.

New York: Odessa
If you find yourself wandering the streets of the East Village after dark, hit up this Eastern Europe-centric joint for cheap deliciousness, before the hipsters take over.

Los Angeles: Pacific Dining Car
Keep it classy late night with Pacific Dining Car’s plethora of options, including filets, lamp chops and other tasty meats.

Boston: South Street Diner
Beantown’s only choice for 24-hour feasting—literally—is Boston’s South Street Diner.

Chicago: White Palace Grill
Opened in 1939, the White Palace Grill claims to be Chicago’s very first diner. They’ve been around long enough to know their way around a greasy spoon.


Houston: 59 Diner
This local chain keeps it old school with retro diner vibes. Locations throughout the city make for easy burger access no matter where you end up.

Dallas: Angry Dog
Food that is seriously good—and not just for a bar. Angry Dog’s award-winning wings are a must-try, and the burgers aren’t bad either.

Atlanta: Gladys & Ron’s Chicken and Waffles
Soul food with a twist. Music legends Gladys Knight and Ron Winans offer chicken and waffles into the wee hours of the morning.

Las Vegas: The Peppermill
Boasting seriously cheesy Vegas décor, the Peppermill is a classic. Plus, every meal comes with a free photo to commemorate your dining experience. That’s a keeper.

Detroit: Bucharest Grill
Bucharest Grill is known for its amazing Middle Eastern cuisine served all night. Swap your typical burger for the famous shawarma sandwich.

St. Louis: Uncle Bill’s Pancake and Dinner House
This oldie but goodie has been serving up the perfect greasy breakfast since it was established in 1961. Beats IHOP any day (or night) of the week.
