Where to Find Food past Midnight in Chicago

Where to Find Food past Midnight in Chicago

From Chinese food to classic Chicago hotdogs, here is a list of seven late night food joints for those of you looking to venture beyond McDonald’s or the grill at Beaumont. Late night munchies/drunchies are no joke, so you might as well treat yourself!

Velvet Taco

This one’s a personal favorite. The tacos are massive and incredibly savory. They range from classic (Buffalo Chicken) to experimental (Ahi Poke), so you can really customize your order to fit your mood. One piece of advice, however: the red velvet cake isn’t worth it. Get another taco instead.

Hours: Closes at 5 am on Friday and Saturday, 2 or 3 am on other days

Triple Crown

Another one of my personal favorites. Located in the heart of Chinatown, Triple Crown has a wide ranging menu, especially when it comes to dim sum options. The soup dumplings are my favorite, so I’ll usually get at least two orders of them (one order is 4 dumplings).

Hours: Closes at 2 am on Friday and Saturday, 12 am all other days

Taqueria Los Comales

An excellent choice for authentic late night Mexican food, featuring burritos and platillos alongside just tacos. Taqueria Los Comales also has churros!

Jim’s Original

Jim’s Original is a classic. A smoked polish sausage from Jim’s is about as Chicago as you can get, when it’s three in the morning and you’re heading back from a night out on the town.

Hours: 24 hours

Strings Ramen Shop

Ramen is a comfort food, but Strings approaches it with an unexpected level of detail and tastefulness, especially for a 2 am meal. For instance, the noodles at Strings are made fresh daily with an authentic Japanese mixer and noodle maker, which allows them to stand out as noticeably more thin and firm than your typical ramen noodle.
