There’s no arguing the greatness of a late night meal at Whataburger or Raising Cane’s, but making 1 a.m. food runs to the same fast food joints can get old. Fortunately, Dallas offers some other options the after-hours munchies.

Angry Dog, located on Commerce Street in Deep Ellum, keeps serving until 2 a.m on Fridays and Saturdays. This bar and restaurant offers a fairly wide array of menu items, but the most popular dish is their namesake, the Angry Dog.

A grilled bun is topped with a Kosher beef hot dog, also grilled. Then the dish is piled high with mustard, spicy chili, cheddar cheese, and grilled onions. The use of a knife and fork is highly recommended.

A veteran in the Dallas dining scene, Buzzbrews Kitchen is favorited for their 24-hour service and their enormous menu. The closest one to campus is located off U.S.-75 between Fitzhugh and Blackburn.

No matter what you’re in the mood for, Buzzbrews probably has it on their menu: burgers, salads, soups, omelettes, quesadillas – you name it.

If endless options aren’t your thing, Lakewood Landing will do the trick. Visit this dive bar and restaurant after 11 p.m. to try one of their off the menu corn dogs, which are hand dipped in a roasted jalapeno batter. Even though Lakewood Landing stays open until 2 a.m., if you’re going for the corn dogs – show up early.
