What do you do in Pittsburgh if you’re hungry late at night, but you don’t feel like a boring burger or salad? Pittsburgh may not be the ‘city that never sleeps,’ but you can still find a ton of great late-night dining options if you want more than the typical fast-food fare. Here are some of the best places Pittsburghers can strap on the old feedbag after hours:
Is it possible to create a list of the best Pittsburgh restaurants … no matter what the subject … and not include Primanti Brothers?! Every Pittsburgher, bar none, knows the power of the sky-high Primanti Brothers sandwich. Start with the freshest homemade bread; pile on gobs of meat and cheese; heap on coleslaw, French fries, and whatever else your taste buds designate; and you’ve got the historic sandwich these bros have been making Pittsburgh history with since 1933! Most of their locations are open into the wee small hours, some even open … SNAP! … 24/7, no joke! Try their original location in the Strip District at 46 Eighteenth Street anytime day or night for some of the dreamiest food ever dreamed up in the Burgh!
You truly have to see this place to believe it … it’s like a self-contained dining and entertainment city! What used to be Latitude 40 has transitioned to their global brand, Latitude 360, and the evolution is spectacular! They’ve got 65,000 square feet of interactive game room, Axis Bar with stage and dance floor, 360 Grille, bowling alley, movie theater … and more! Located in Robinson at 200 Quinn Drive, Latitude 360 is not just a late-night dining option. It’s an entertainment adventure you must experience! Hours of operation are Sunday-Thursday: 11 am-12 am and Friday-Saturday: 11 am to 2 am. Visit their website for more information.
If you’re looking for something late at night that’s truly unique, try Cambod-Ican Kitchen’s Cambodian and American cuisine fused together into one fantastic menu. Known as the ‘Home of the World-Famous Kabobs and Wontons,’ this great restaurant is conveniently located on Pittsburgh’s Southside at 1701 East Carson Street. A little like Chinese but with herbs and spices all their own, Cambodian cuisine certainly has flavors all its own. And when Cambod-Ican Kitchen combines that Cambodian flare with elements of American food, this dining experience will have you coming back again and again. Their convenient hours of operation are Tuesday-Sunday 5 pm to 5 am.
The Original Hot Dog Shop
Seriously, did you think I would finish out this list and not include The Original Hot Dog Shop?! Is there a Pittsburgher who hasn‘t experienced this mighty 24-hour Burgh joint? Historic in the City of Champions since the 1960 World Series, ‘The O‘ is located at 3901 Forbes Avenue in Oakland, and has been featured on TV shows and magazines all over the country. Enjoy a wide selection of dogs, burgers, shrimp dinners, pizza, and subs from 10 am to 3:30 am seven days a week. Oh, and don’t forget the mountains of delectable fries you perpetually swear you can’t finish … but somehow you always do!
So it’s now one in the morning, I’ve been writing for hours, and I am positively starving. Wait a minute … what am I doing still sitting in front of my computer? It’s time for me to take my own advice and run down this great list from top to bottom. Catch yins later!
