Find a good meal after midnight is sometimes difficult, especially during the week. But fast food isn’t the only option. whatever you are hungry, you can find it here in Houston. Tacos, pizza, a dozen oysters (yes), take your pick. We’ve rounded up some of Houston’s best late-night restaurants.
1. Canteen Barba
If you’re craving a carne asada taco, Cantina Barba has you covered until 3 a.m. Just off I-45, steps from the White Oak Music Hall up high, you’ll find some of the best watermelon margaritas, tacos, and burgers. There is also a secret Mezcal bar on the back patio. (But don’t tell anyone. It’s a secret.)
2. Frank’s Pizza
Frank’s is conveniently nestled in downtown Houston at the corner of Prairie and Travis. Get a single (read: giant) New York-style slice and take a seat in Market Square Park for some people watching at 3 a.m. or call in a whole pie and enjoy it on the couch.
3. love buzz
This late-night pizzeria is open until 2 a.m., so close your bar tab at this other location and Uber for a The Wake & Bake breakfast-inspired pie, sandwich, or order some “gnarled gnoles.” “. There’s also a full-service bar on-site, but remember to drink responsibly.
4. Loch bar
A night at Loch Bar is worth the drive up to River Oaks. It’s a great place to hang out with a wide variety of raw seafood options and an awesome cocktail bar. The best part? There is live music until 1am as part of the restaurant’s daily Live @ Loch series.
5. The Tapatía
Is it so bad to have a plate of enchiladas after midnight? Four of La Tapatía’s locations in Houston would say no. The menu is full of specialties for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Start with one of the quesos flameados options and thank us later.
6. BB’s Texas Orleans
Cajun flair from Texas and New Orleans collides at BB’s. Pick up a shrimp or catfish po’boy, blood sausage link, and a daiquiri from the Montrose branch, which is open until 4 a.m. You can sit on the terrace or inside; whatever your choice, everything is served hot. And be nice to the staff; every night is a long night.
7. Cafe Dot
The restaurant that started it all – and by all we mean the Pappas empire – opened in 1967 and has rarely closed since. Open 24/7, The Dot serves home-cooked comfort food, with all the blue plates of the day and soups of the day you’d expect in an old-fashioned restaurant. For breakfast, the Houston Omelette comes with all the meat you can handle.
8. FuFu Cafe
The only days of the week that this Chinatown staple isn’t open until 2 a.m. are Fridays and Saturdays, when FuFu Cafe is open until 4 a.m. Green Onion Pancakes and Soup Dumplings are great for soaking up all you’ve been drinking, while Spicy my po the tofu will sober you up in a second.
9. Genji Japanese Restaurant
This Westchase haunt specializes in two things – Japanese bar food and karaoke – and it offers both until 2am every weekday. You don’t have to sing for your supper, but there’s always entertainment in the main dining/karaoke room while you snack on chicken karaage, katsu curry or tekka don. Private karaoke rooms can be rented, but where’s the fun in that?
10. Pie House
As the name suggests, this is the place to get a 24-hour slice of pie. Of course, if you’re not there for a slice of Bayou Goo (our favorite, with a nut crust pecan topped with a layer of sweet cream cheese, vanilla cream and chocolate chunks), you can also indulge in waffles covered in whipped cream. or an open chili cheeseburger.
11. At Katz
You know the saying by now: Katz never quits. That means you can get a deli sandwich about the same height as the two-story brick building that houses Katz’s on Lower Westheimer, or a cheese milkshake (which, yes, contains a whole slice of cheesecake. ), 24 hours a day. Nothing tastes better after a night on the town than a platter of fried pickles from Katz.
Mai’s is the grande dame of late-night diners in the town of Bayou, the place where many Houstonians tasted their first bowl of Pho, the place where Midtown clubbers have descended for decades after a long night of drinking and dancing. In 1990, Mai Nguyen took over the restaurant her parents had opened in 1978 and began the process of modernizing the old building, though the heart and soul – Vietnamese comfort food – remained intact.
13. Poppa Burger
You might not know you needed a Flamin’ Hot Cheeto pie at 3 a.m., but when that realization hits you, Poppa Burger will be there for you. Open 24/7, 365 days a year (yes, even at Christmas), this family-run cash-food stand has been serving the Northside for more than half a century, offering burgers, tacos for the breakfast and burritos to a hungry crowd. which never seems to falter.
14. Spanish Flowers
This nearly 24-hour joint (it closes at 10 p.m. Tuesday night to clean and restock, before reopening at 9 a.m. Wednesday morning) is the place to go for your late-night Tex-Mex needs, whether it’s either a hearty bowl of menudo for breakfast or a plate of cheesy enchiladas for dinner. The $4.95 breakfast special, which varies but often includes Chilaquiles Where Huevos Rancheros— is always a bargain, offered from 4 a.m. to 10 a.m. daily.
