Restaurants for Late Night Dining Around Atlanta

Where to grab a bite after hours

View as Map

Most Atlanta restaurants close down the kitchen around 10 p.m., which isn’t conducive to the hours kept by night owls or those just getting off work. While old reliables like Waffle House are always open, there are plenty of other solid food options available around town for late night dining.

Looking for restaurants open 24 hours? Try one of these Atlanta restaurants.
