Chicago Late Night Food Overview

Benchmark - Bar | Beer Garden | Restaurant | Rooftop Bar in Chicago

Chicago may not be the city that never sleeps, but it sure does like to stay up late and eat food in the wee hours. Considering the excitement of the Chicago bar and nightlife scene, it comes as no surprise that this city offers some excellent late-night dining options.

For a quick fix, The Weiner’s Circle in Lincoln Park is the perfect spot to grab a hot dog before ending a night of drinking and debauchery. Not only are the dogs themselves delicious, the experience of ordering from the employees with attitude might just put a cherry on top of an already wonderful evening.

For a different fast-food experience, check out one of the numerous taquerias in Wicker Park and Bucktown, such as Flash Taco on Damon Avenue. Generally open until 4am or later, these Mexican staples are the perfect places to grab a greasy burrito after one too many beers.

More laid-back options include Clark’s in Lakeview, a 24-hour diner with excellent milkshakes. Or try the Hollywood Grill, which serves breakfast all day long, seven days a week. And for those with a sweet tooth, Five Faces Ice Cream is open until 5am every day.

So no matter what the craving, Chicago offers plenty of late-night food options to satisfy any hungry stomach at every hour of the night.
