  • There’s something about a fresh, crispy, juicy piece of fried chicken that truly hits different after midnight, and Pelicana does it best. Satisfy those late-night munchies with some spicy soy fried wings, an order of truffle fries, a classic fried chicken sandwich, or another one of their countless delicious menu items. 

Wawa

  • Hours: Open 24/7 
  • When I first heard about the Wawa hype, I didn’t understand what could be so special about a convenience store. But after a couple of late night Wawa runs, I’ve been fully converted. Wawa has just about everything your stomach could ever want at 1AM: mac and cheese, brisket sandwiches, hot hoagies, sourdough melts, chicken tenders, quesadillas… the list goes on and on. Beyond hot food, Wawa also offers some refreshing fruit smoothies and an endless selection of both sweet and savory snacks.

Kabobeesh

  • If the clock hits midnight and you’re craving some Halal food all of a sudden, Kabobeesh has you covered. This restaurant offers the feeling of home-cooked comfort food. One of their most popular orders is the lamb kabob: heaps of tender, well-seasoned lamb, a rice and chickpea combination, a giant buttery naan, and a salad. Their flavors are sure to hit the spot every time!

Allegro Pizza & Grill

  • Nothing is quite as satisfying as sinking your teeth into a cheesy, hot, fresh slice of pizza, especially after a long night. Allegro’s also offers pasta, burgers, quesadillas, and all the sides you crave: curly fries, bacon cheese fries, mozzarella sticks, onion rings, chicken fingers, and more… and better yet, it’s less than a mile away!
