Going back to school means settling back into the regularly scheduled programming of being a college student.

When you're out and about in the earliest hours of the morning, oftentimes you find yourself absolutely starving for no reason in particular.

Luckily, the ATL has plenty of delicious diners, drive-ins, and dives that are open all night long for those late night feasts. Here are the 5 best Atlanta restaurants that are open 24 hours

#1. Waffle House

Waffle House, beloved WaHo, is an icon of the south and the most delicious late night spot to get chocolate chip waffles and hash browns at 2am. Open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, WaHo is truly a constant in my life.

#2. Majestic Diner

Majestic is an Atlanta classic. Serving up Atlantans all day every day for almost a hundred years, this landmark offers diner food for every kind of diner. Omelettes, burgers and dogs, chili, quesadillas, and of course, all those Southern comfort specialties - grits, fried okra, collard greens and more. Truly iconic. 

#3. Mama's Cocina Latina

With everybody's favorite Mexican foods 24/7, Mama's Cocina Latina is the spot for burritos, arepas, tacos, tortas, enchiladas, fajitas and tostadas - or all of the above. Try a late-night platter: rice, beans and entree for less than $10. Check Taco Bell at the door.

#4. Steak 'n Shake

Steak 'n Shake has great burgers. And also great shakes. So that's that on that. 

#5. Cook Out

With 3 ATL locations open until 5am (close enough), Cook Out is a tasty Southern chain. Famous for their combo of burgers and BBQ, treat yo self to an early morning feast - and polish that off with a fancy milkshake.

When the weekend rolls around and you find yourself in that late night rumble bumble munchie mood, keep the party going with a delicious meal at one of these hot spots. Happy feasting!
