It’s surprisingly difficult to find a late-night meal in Las Vegas, a city known for exploits that last into the wee hours of the morning.
Unfortunately, the pandemic and subsequent labor shortages have forced many restaurants to cut their hours of operation, leaving few options open late.
I thought it would be helpful to create and maintain a breakdown of restaurants open 24 hours on the Strip and Downtown so that you can get your calorie fix, no matter what time it is.
I’ll be sure to link to the menus of each restaurant so that you can easily compare your options.
24-Hour Restaurants On The Strip
Backstage Deli at Luxor: Specializing in a selection of breakfast sandwiches, traditional sandwiches, burgers, and hot dogs, Backstage Deli is open around the clock from Wednesday through Sunday.
America at New York New York: Not only is America a budget-friendly destination, with most items costing $15ish or less, but they’re also open 24 hours. On the menu are a collection of burgers, pasta, fish & chips, soups, salads, and sandwiches.
America is also among the few restaurants on the Strip with all-day breakfast.
Side Betty Grill at Park MGM: Open 24 hours, Side Betty Grill offers a limited “After Hours” menu from midnight – 2 pm. Items on the menu include chicken tenders, a double cheeseburger, a spicy chicken sandwich, a bacon-wrapped hot dog, and even a sloppy joe. Most late-night menu items land in the $15 – $20 range.
The Henry at Cosmopolitan: Offering an extensive late-night menu, overnight guests will have the opportunity to order a number of breakfast items, sandwiches, burgers, soup, salad, desserts, and even cocktails around the clock. Most entrees on the menu cost $20, give or take.
Cafe Americano at Caesars Palace: The late-night menu at Cafe Americano is wide-ranging and includes burgers, fish & chips, pasta, a ribeye steak, breakfast items, and personal pizzas. Most items on the menu land in the mid-$20 range.
Cafe Hollywood at Planet Hollywood: Open all night, items on the late-night menu include eggs, omelets, pancakes, waffles, French toast, and a number of burgers/sandwiches. A selection of lunch/dinner appetizers like nachos, shrimp, and wings are also served 24 hours.
Snacks at Mirage: A quick-serve restaurant open 24 hours, Snacks serves a number of breakfast sandwiches, traditional sandwiches, burgers, and hot dogs.
Grand Lux Cafe at Venetian: Open 24 hours, Venetian’s Grand Lux Cafe offers a somewhat limited, yet effective, late-night menu. On it, you’ll find breakfast items like a Belgian waffle, salads, and sandwiches. The sandwich lineup includes a BLT, roast turkey and brie, chicken salad, and a club.
Notably, everything on the late-night menu hovers around $20 or less.

STRAT Cafe at STRAT: Friday through Sunday, the STRAT Cafe stays open 24 hours and serves everything from burgers and steak to breakfast on their late-night menu.
Denny’s (3 locations): Although you likely have one back at home, you should note that Denny’s is open 24 hours and offer locations at Casino Royale, just north of MGM Grand, and just north of Encore.
Fast Food Options on the Strip: Of course, if there isn’t a sit-down restaurant open all night near you, there are a number of fast food restaurants up and down the Strip that keep the lights on 24 hours per day. Common options include McDonald’s, Subway, etc.

24-Hour Restaurants on Fremont Street
Saginaw’s at Circa: Open 24/7, Saginaw’s serves an impressive lineup of both hot and cold sandwiches. I recently stopped in and ordered a warm corned beef and pastrami sandwich and found it to be delicious and filling – Worth the $22 paid.
Notably, Saginaw’s also sells the shrimp cocktail made famous by DuPar’s at Golden Gate, which is now closed. Honestly, it isn’t cheap at $12, but if you’re up money from gambling, I’d suggest using your winnings to splurge.
The Grille at Golde Nugget: Nestled within Golden Nugget is The Grille, which is open 24 hours and serves breakfast, pizzas, a variety of loaded hot dogs, sandwiches, and more. A cost-effective option, almost everything can be yours for under $20.
Lanai Express at Fremont: This one isn’t open 24/7, but it’s close enough to count as Lanai Express is open from 11 am – 7 am the next day. The menu is wide-ranging and includes items like oxtail soup, hamburgers, Chinese, and the cheapest shrimp cocktail in Vegas at a mere 99 cents.
I recently tried the shrimp cocktail, and to be honest, it’s not likely something to buy again… but dang it’s cheap!
American Coney Island at The D: Essentially a unique fast-food joint, American Coney Island is one of my personal favorite late-night spots to grab a bite. Open 24 hours, American Coney serves dogs, burgers, gyros, and cheese/chili cheese fries.
Siegel’s 1941 at El Cortez: Open all day and night, Siegel’s 1941 has a separate late-night menu that includes breakfast items, sandwiches, burgers, chicken wings, and even salmon.
Denny’s: Like the locations on the Strip, there is a Denny’s located in Neonopolis open 24 hours a day.
Fast Food Options Downtown: There are a number of fast-food options on Fremont Street that can fill your late-night cravings. Restaurant options include McDonald’s (The D), Subway (Plaza, 4 Queens, and El Cortez), White Castle, and others.
Hopefully, I was able to steer you in the direction of a 24-hour restaurant in Vegas that works for you, your tastes, and your budget. While options are currently pretty limited, I’m hopeful that the list expands as pressures caused by the current labor shortage ease.
I’m a former software salesman turned Vegas aficionado. While the craps table is my preferred habitat, I pull myself away to explore new attractions, shows, restaurants, and outdoor activities around Las Vegas with the intent of sharing my experiences.
Ultimately, I just want to help folks plan a better trip and save a few bucks in the process.
