Javier's is essentially just another Muchas Gracias. As is the Alberto's in Salem and wherever else they are.

La Catrina Loncheria is the official title, I believe. But for the longest time the most prominent title on their truck was "Tortas Gigantes". I think they're damned good and anyone who says different I challenge to join me there any night of the week.


I love me some Muchas Garcias $2 fish tacos and the sauces are the best!!!! Funny though at Tanasborne they're $2, but the one by Lloyd Center they're only $1.90. Kinda like the gas pricing around town. Makes you wonder how much their selling for in the "couve".

I'm assuming since no one has mentioned it that it probably closed down, but I was always a sucker for Montage back in the day. Haven't been there in years though.


Anyone? Bueller Bueller?

usually if i'm eating late night its bc i'm drunk. and when i'm drunk theres nothing better than greasy breakfast food. its not the most delicious food, but i usually like going to the original hotcake house on powell for my late night meals. its usually packed from the clubbers after 2:30 am. Cheap food and large portions. Pretty damn delicious pancakes compared to the chain shops. Voted top 5 late night eateries in the nation by food network at one point. Its mostly filler food however.

Utopia on SE 82nd is actually a Viet restaurant that is open til like 2am I believe. They have all the usual soup stuff (Bun Rieu, Bun Bo Hue, etc), beit, it's not the best and not the worst, but when it's that late, what do you expect. What is really good here are the garlic, spicy, fishsauce chicken wings. YUM.
When I first went there after a long night of drinking, it was sort of intimidating as there were a bunch of men in the front area watching sports on the big screen all drinking away, but we were escorted to the other side of the restaurant where practically nobody was.

Went recently for a meal where someone else chose the restaurant. I enjoyed the frog legs and the "old mac" with the garlicy alfredo sauce that I ate off of someone else's plate. My spicy mac with spam wasn't all that. They don't fry the spam to get crispy edges and the pasta was a little overdone. The gator bites were soft and kinda nasty. I had high hopes for that dish having had some good gator bites while in Nashville. I was glad after that we had drinks and salad at Nostrana prior. Still, I'd go do the frog legs and old mac again.

I'll second the vote for Cassidy's. I hadn't been there for years and went the other night. I guess they completely redid the menu a couple years ago because the mediocre bar food was gone and replaced with some really intriguing dishes. I was a little tipsy so the "chicken fried pork belly, egg, gravy, and sweet corn mashed potatoes" sounded great and it was. I nibbled a few things off other plates and was impressed as well. They have a late night happy hour menu from 10-2 with everything on it $5.75 (including the aforementioned dish). Anyway, if you're looking for something tasty afterhours (before 2am) and you're downtown, I'd definitely give 'em a shot.

I really miss Hung Far Low's and the Brassiere Montmartre for after 1am eats.

Glad I saw this thread. I really wanna chime in here. I like the ghetto-fabulous greasy late night joints for what they're worth (The Bo Bo at montage - biscuits and milk pan gravy for example hits the after drinking "spot", though if I'm drunk enough to dive into that filthy place, I usually regret ordering it later.)

HOWEVER, there is but one superior option in my book. I have had now TWO absolutely phenomenal (relative to the hour) full menu experiences at My Brother's Crawfish (see my posts on that thread) on SE Harrison and 82nd (next to Good Taste Noodle House and across from Ngoc Ham Bun Bo Hue). Bro's serves THE ENTIRE MENU 'TIL 2:30 AM. Freaking crazy. I'm not sure if that's weekends only. As it was, both of my late night dinners were on weekend nights. A Friday night with a reservation for eight people at midnight where the owner pulled out all the stops for us, though we had to sit in the bar, which was fine and added to the fun with the loud hip hop and uber-hot Vietkids at the bar drinking.
The other time was for six of us. We called to be sure, but then just stopped in for, again, full dinner menu at 1:30 in the morning. The young staff was extremely attentive and very curious about how we knew about them. The food was very good, though pretty standard compared to the first time when the owner was on top of it.
There was a DJ'd private B-day party in the bar, so they sat us in the dining room at a long table. We devoured gigantic crawfish boils (freshly flown in from LA), great corn bread, blackened whole sides of catfish, fried oysters in awesome batter, and MUCH Abita lager and Turbo Dog at the modest price of $3 or 4 bucks each.

Call ahead to be sure about hours, as they do seem to vary with how busy they are:

Been going to a late night music jam on Wed. nights lately, it ends at 1am and is near 52nd and Powell. Never want to venture that far as I usually end up near there for the night. Had been looking high and low for a place and then realized, the Slingshot's kitchen is open until 2:30am.

Hallelujah.

Shared some calamari (sauteed, not breaded, on greens with a garlicky vinaigrette) and we each had a burger (mine with cheddar and mushrooms, hers with havarti and caramelized onions). Perfect late night meal, great service, good food. Nice to get a good salad and have other choices besides burgers, though I do like the burgers there (& you can get fontina, manchego, havarti...not choices you'd expect in a bar that seems pretty divey on the outside).

Really a great solution when you need inexpensive but good eats very late in that area. Decent tap list too, though most folks were, of course, drinking PBR. Noticed Bulleit and Old Overholt on the shelf, though...

I respectfully challenge you to find better tasting food at 3AM - with about 10 double Jack and Cokes in your system. Spicy mac. It's an emotional meal. Tears of joy and laughter. Then sadness as it exits via the mouth in the parking lot.

...Never happened to me.

I'll also throw my hat in at the Gilt. Solid app's.

Anyone know what the service workers discount is these days at the Gilt late night? 20%?
