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.

Note: Some previously listed restaurants on this map have temporarily ceased 24-hour dining service due to the pandemic or staff shortages.
