| Ryan Fleisher

Most Atlanta restaurants close down the kitchen at 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 Atlanta for late night dining after 10 p.m. and beyond.

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