I work at a dinner-only restaurant. One of the drawbacks of working at such a place is that when my shift is done, there isn't much open anymore. Double-Doubles at In-N-Out can only be tolerated for so long, just like any place with a drive-through window or the eighteen kabillion ____berto's 24 hour Mexican joints that dot the Valley. Don't get me started on Denny's, IHOP, or 5 & Diner, puh-leeze. Here's what I know of for a late-night chow fix:
Pita Pit, Tempe: Generously sized pita wrap sandwiches, open til 2 AM, 3 Fri-Sat.
Delux, Phoenix: Ridiculously good burgers, open til 2 AM
Fatburger, Tempe: Not quite as good as Delux, but less costly. Open til at least 1, 2 Fri-Sat
Fate, Phoenix: Decent Asian food, open til 2 AM, 3 Fri-Sat
Boston's, Tempe: Pizza that's a step up from delivery dreck, open til 2 AM, 3 Fri-Sat
Nick's 24/7, Phoenix: Dreck pizza, but the only game in town when you want pizza after 3 AM
Richardson's, Phoenix: Open til midnight.
Are there any late-night essentials that I'm missing?
