Late Night Food Places to Go After the Bars Close in San Francisco…

It's 2am. You're buzzed and, despite your large dinner, inexplicably famished. You have two options: stumble into the nearest cab, pass out in bed and awake to a grumbling, upset stomach--or stumble into the nearest drunk-food establishment and coat your belly with some greasy goodness. No matter which route you go, we've got you covered with our list of the best late-night snacks and morning-after grub.

Late-Night Junk Food in San Francisco by Citysearch:

Open til 4am on weekends, this diner set in an old railroad car is a post-bar-hopping mainstay in Polk Gulch and is known best for its fried-egg-topped burger.

Yoogo Gelato

Pizza Orgasmica

El Farolito
2779 Mission St, San Francisco, CA
Colossal burritos and cheap prices make this taqueria, which stays open until 4am on weekends, a post-party favorite.

The Tamale Lady
Various Mission and SoMa bars, San Francisco, CA
Hungry bar patrons go crazy for the homemade masa treats sold by "the Tamale Lady" in nightspots around the Mission and SoMa.

Sparky's Diner
242 Church St, San Francisco, CA
Beer goggles don't just apply to last-call liaisons--some foods' appeal is infinitely improved by the accompaniment of a few drinks. This all-night greasy spoon is testimony to that.
