The Best Late Night Food Spots In Washington DC For GW Students

Although we all have that one friend who claims that they never need food at 2am after a long night of drinking, the rest of us know the opposite to be true. If it weren’t for those greasy burgers, 24/7 diners, and pizza deliveries, we wouldn’t know what to do with ourselves after leaving the bars.

Thankfully, DC has some amazing spots to fill the void that the combination of beer and liquor creates.


(1800 N St NW, Washington, DC 20036)

Although Surfside is a glorified hole-in-the-wall, there is nothing better than grabbing some tacos, chips, and guacamole when the craving to eat hits, all of which are delicious. Being located right by DuPont Circle, this place is on the way home from several bars frequented by GW students, and being open to 2am on the weekends, it’s the perfect pit stop.

Ben’s Chili Bowl

(1213 U St NW, Washington, DC 20009)

This iconic DC restaurant, where President Obama ate before being inaugurated in 2009, is known for their chili-cheese half smoke hotdogs. Also serving chili-cheese fries, and being open until 4am on Fridays and Saturdays, this is the perfect place to end a night on U Street. The fact that the line curves around the restaurant every night tells you just how good the food here is, and speaking from personal experience, it’s unbelievable.

Jumbo Slice

(2341 18th St NW, Washington, DC 20009)

Pizza. When it comes to late night food, it doesn’t get much better than that. But just imagine having a slice of your favorite ‘za as big as your head. This is what you get when you visit Jumbo slice. Serving pizza slices that have to be held across two paper plates instead of one, this is a must if you’re craving pizza after a night in Adams Morgan, or anywhere else in DC; it’s worth the trip.

The Diner

(2453 18th St NW, Washington, DC 20009)

If Pizza isn’t your thing (and I don’t know why it wouldn’t be), then The Diner in Adams Morgan is for you. Being open 24 hours a day, this place serves all sorts of food to satisfy any craving. From pancakes to buffalo wings, there is something for everyone. The Diner also serves mimosas and Bloody Mary’s, so if you don’t want your night to end just yet, you can carry it on here.

Pizza Movers & Calzones

(1618 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington, DC 20007)

Eating out at 2am in the morning might not be for everyone, as the comforts of your couch or bed are too enticing to make you stay out. Luckily for these people, Pizza Movers & Calzones this there to help. Delivering pizzas until the early hours, this Pizza joint is a favorite of many GW students.
