We're willing to bet that you've found yourself in this situation before: It is 2 a.m. and you are ravenous. Like willing-to-part-with-your-first-born hungry. Whether it's because you work extra weird hours or because you, um, play extra hard on the weekends, the drive-thru just won't do. That's why we’ve fashioned this handy list of our favorite late-night restaurants that are serving up food that's worth wee-hours feasting. Trust us, you'll feel way better in the morning if you follow our playbook.
Bellagio Pizza and Subs
Open until 5 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays
We’ve always been fans of Bellagio’s pies, but new owners have really upped the ante by revamping their menu to incorporate premium cheeses, family recipes and locally grown produce (when available). With a menu that features everything from pizza and wings to sandwiches and pastas, Bellagio is well equipped to satisfy your late night meaty/cheesy/saucy cravings. Don’t forget about this fancy Scoutmob deal.
M.L. Rose Craft Beer and Burgers
Serving dinner until 1 a.m. daily
Burgers aren’t available on the late night menu (though we strongly suggest you try one sometime), but they’ve got plenty of other things that’ll leave you just as satisfied, from loaded nachos and chili cheese fries to spinach artichoke dip and quesadillas.
Prince’s Hot Chicken
Open until 4 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays
Served between two slices of white bread with pickles, Prince’s tantalizingly hot chicken is marinated in a spicy rub before it’s fried so the fire runs extra deep. Available in mild, medium, hot or extra hot, order anything above medium and prepare to do some serious sweating. They get pretty busy in the late night hours, so you may wait a while. It’s totally worth it in the end. We promise.
Open until 5 a.m. daily
It’s hard to find a good deep-dish pizza outside of the Windy City. So when we heard there was a new spot in Nashville offering Chicago-style pizza, we were pretty excited. While Chicago classics like said deep-dish and Chicago dogs are their specialty, Little Chicago also offers salads (we love the Fuji Apple Salad), burgers and pretty much everything in between. Oh, and check out this sweet Scoutmob deal
Athens Family Restaurant
Open 24 hours a day, Thursday through Saturday
From American breakfast platters to classic Greek favorites, the Athens Family Restaurant menu offers the most variety when it comes late-night dining. We’d venture to say that if you’re craving it, they’ve got it. Seriously. The menu is huge.
Suzy Wong’s House of Yum
Serving dinner until 1 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays
Topped with queso blanco, edamame pico, red curry crema and sriracha, the Asian Wonton Pulled Pork Nachos are one of our favorite items on the menu. In fact, we can't recall a time we've gone to Suzy Wong’s without ordering them. Most menu items are meant to be shared, so rather than coursing the meal, each dish arrives to the table as it's ready. Haven’t been to Suzy Wong’s yet? Best get yourself this Scoutmob deal.
Open 24 hours a day
Blurring the lines between coffee house, music venue and restaurant, Cafe Coco’s eclectic menu of personal pizzas, pastas, juicy burgers and leafy green salads will leave even the pickiest eaters with late-night dinning options. But the fun doesn’t stop there. Cafe Coco also offers one of the largest dessert selections in Nashville, including an insanely decadent double chocolate cake.
