The clock strikes midnight, then 1 am, then 2 am, and you realize that dinner was hours ago and you’re once again hungry. Now that you’ve recognized your hunger, your next step is deciding what you’re in the mood for. Here’s a quick guide to all the options around NC State for every craving, so you can spend less time thinking about the food and more time eating it.
So what are you craving?
Something Sweet – Insomina Cookies
Whether you order it to your house, dorm, or stop by the store, Insomina Cookies stays open until 3 am. Insomnia will make sure that sweet tooth of yours is satisfied. The cookies are always deliciously warm, making it feel as if the cookie was baked just for you. What’s better than eating a freshly baked cookie that you didn’t even have to bake yourself?
Something Cheap – Cookout
Want a lot of food for a cheap price? Fret no more. Cookout has the best of both worlds. You can you get 12 hushpuppies for 99 cents along with many other options for less than a dollar. It’s open until 4 am, so grab a milkshake too and your late night appetite will be pleased.
Breakfast Food – IHOP or Waffle House
Whether you’re team pancakes or team waffles, both places serve breakfast all day on the weekends. I repeat they DO NOT close at all on the weekends. So even if its 4:53 am, they’ve got you covered.
Something Greasy – Gumby’s Pizza
Open until 4 am on the weekends and 3 am on weekdays, Gumby’s provides the dough. They also deliver, so order a pizza plus some pokey sticks and have a late night pizza party with friends, or who are we kidding just with yourself.
Something really, really close – Tuffy’s Diner
Tuffy’s is NC State’s very own diner. While its only open until 11 am, it’s important for any NC State student to know that it exists for late night. For their night owl menu, they serve burgers, grilled cheese sandwiches, and most importantly, waffles. “The Tuffle” is a chocolate waffle topped with whipped cream, chocolate chips, and a chocolate ganache syrup drizzled on top. If you live on campus, you’ll be able to get that late night bite in .2 seconds.
Whether its after a night out in the town or a night in with your dog, hunger is bound to strike, so order some food because somehow it always seems to tastes better late at night.
