San Diego 24-Hour Dining

True revolutionaries never sleep. For you, the hardcore late-night diner: only places open a full twenty-four hours at least one day week. If you want to be able to eat out in San Diego no matter how late or early it happens to be, or if you just can’t tell time and don’t want to have to worry, this is the list for you.

For the less hard-core, there is San Diego After Midnight, which lists all the boring places to eat that are merely open after midnight.

If you’re looking at this on paper, you can view the up-to-date version at DiningAfterMidnight.com.
