Restaurants Open for 24-Hour Dining Around Atlanta

From diners to drive-thrus, these restaurants serve food around the clock

View as Map

Atlanta isn’t really a 24/7 kind of town, so the options for around-the-clock dining are limited to mainly fast food. However, there are a few restaurants where hungry Atlantans can sit down and grab a bite no matter the time of day. From pho and waffles to fried jumbo shrimp, doughnuts, and Korean barbecue at 3 a.m., these Atlanta-area restaurants stay open for 24-hour (or nearly) dining.

Some previously listed restaurants on this map have closed or temporarily ceased 24-hour dining service.

Disclaimer: A mask mandate is currently in place for the city of Atlanta requiring all people, regardless of vaccination status, to wear masks indoors in public places, including private businesses and establishments. The latest CDC guidance for vaccinated diners during the COVID-19 outbreak is here; dining out still carries risks for unvaccinated diners and workers. Please be aware of changing local rules, and check individual restaurant websites for any additional restrictions such as mask requirements. Find a local vaccination site here.
