Sometimes, after a late night out on the town, you just need a solid meal to satisfy your hunger and get you back on track. Other times, maybe you’re just hungry and the fast food drive-thru won’t cut it! Either way, Long Island is home to a wide variety of late night restaurants for every taste.
The Best Late Night Restaurants on Long Island
Cherry Valley Deli
You can’t have a list of the top late night restaurants on Long Island without mentioning the O.G., Cherry Valley Deli. Although it started as a small sandwich shop in West Hempstead, this Long Island institution has recently expanded to a Rockville Centre location.
Open 24 hours a day, Cherry Valley is an ideal spot for lunch, or even a quick bite to eat after a visit to the local bars. Just make sure that you try one of their famous heros that are exclusive to the RVC location, such as:
- Fat Fry (onion rings, mozzarella sticks, French fries, mozzarella, marinara sauce)
- Breezy Bomber (hot roast beef, melted mozzarella, melted American cheese, waffle fries, gravy, mozzarella sticks on a garlic hero)
- Godfather (provolone, soppressata, prosciutto, salami, lettuce, oil, red wine vinegar, oregano)
Not to mention, they also have a bunch of specialty sandwiches created by famous figures like fighter Chris Weidman, Vinny from “Jersey Shore,” and New York Islanders Casey Cizikas and Matt Martin.
Back in 2005, Shah’s Halal started as a single food cart in Richmond Hill, Queens. These days, the franchise has spread across Long Island into convenient towns like Wantagh, East Meadow, Bellmore, Valley Stream and more.
Therefore, with closing times past midnight, you can stop by for a tasty lamb, chicken, fish or kebab gyro or platter no matter what time it is. Besides, they also have burgers, fries, wings and other tasty options if the regular dishes aren’t your thing.
Carle Place Diner
Is there anything more Long Island than ending a late night out on the town at your local diner? Luckily, our area is home to fantastic locations, like Carle Place Diner, where you can get both a full breakfast and a steak dinner whenever you feel like it.
From appetizers, breakfast and paninis to salads, burgers and dessert, this place truly has it all. However, if Carle Place is a little out of the way for you, fret not. Almost every town across Long Island has their own unique diner that doubles as a late night restaurant.
