Late Night Eats

Dining Joint

The late night eating urge typically strikes after a night of partying or barhopping. You might be one of these people that clings to the hope that the special late night eat will cure the impending hangover that is sure to follow a night of debaucherous drinking. That said, even the good-natured designated driver is looking forward to those late night eats, especially after dealing with your cockeyed behavior all night long. San Diego offers plenty of things to do well into the wee hours of the night. Luckily, there are some restaurants offering late night eats no matter where you live in San Diego County. Skip the fast food chains and check out some of these spots serving classic late night eats well into the wee hours of the night - you'll find that it's a much better alternative than that 7-11 hot dog that's been sitting in an enclosure for who-knows-how long.

Late night revelers that swear by the rule that greasy food is the key to waking up without a messy hangover may find their cure at Rudford's in North Park, a classic 1949-era, 24-hour diner just as famous for the colorful characters that come in after midnight as they are for their home-style cooking. Where else can you find a group of leather-clad partygoers enjoying a plate of Grilled Liver and Onions sitting right next to a family of conservative types feasting on Roast Sirloin of Beef Au Jous? If that food is a little too fancy for late night eating, try the Bison Burger or Patty Melt, or better yet, order the Chili Cheese Fries.

Late night eats don't have to be a late night, greasy spoon affair. In fact, late night eats can be nutritious as well as downright tasty. After all, not every one in San Diego is out at the bars, some of us might be studying for a big exam or on a 12-step sobriety program; Yellow Deli in Vista is one such place that serves up deliciously tasty and healthy food, 24-hours a day, and 5 days a week. Sure, this restaurant is owned and operated by the Twelve Tribes, a hippie-like Christian Community that some might call a cult, but don't be afraid, they aren't looking to convert you. What they are looking to do is feed you, with really good food. Find sandwiches with colorful names like the vegetarian Yellow Submarine and the Green Mountain Club, a super tasty Maple Turkey sandwich topped with Vermont cheddar, lettuce, tomato and maple mustard.

When all else fails, you can’t go wrong hitting up the hundreds of similarly named fast-Mexican-food joints. You know the names - Albertos, Albertacos, Juanitas, Robertos, Robertitos, Robertacos, the list goes on-and-on. You can find a plethora of 24/7 Mexican food joints on every corner of San Diego County, serving classic Mexican ­food fare such as Carne Asada Burritos, Quesadillas and of course, the California Burrito, all of which can go down smoothly with a 16 ounce serving of a Horchata or Jamaica drink, right before you hit the sheets.
