University of Virginia: Late Night Food Spots

You’re finishing up that big essay and realize that you haven’t had any dinner. But it’s late, and finding a great food spot that’s open can be tough. Fortunately, around the University of Virginia, you’ll find everything from diner-style meals, to deli sandwiches, to the best late-night cookies you’ll ever bite in to. Here are the 10 best late-night food spots near Charlottesville. 

1. The C and O Restaurant, Charlottesville, VA

The C and O Restaurant is one of the fancier inclusions, but its late-night menu drops the prices and offers up the goods. Try their hearty C&O Burger or the pulled pork tacos. If you’re in the mood for desert, their chocolate bread pudding is worth a trip alone.

2. The White Spot, Charlottesville, VA

Open until midnight every night, the White Spot in Charlottesville, Virginia, offers cheap burgers, subs, sandwiches, and fries. Their chicken tenders combo platter is the perfect late-night drinking food. Order online or take-out.

3. Littlejohn’s Deli, Charlottesville, VA

Littlejohn’s is open 24/7. Conveniently located on the Corner near grounds (campus, for you non-UVA types), Littlejohn’s sells flatbreads, salads, foot longs, deli classics, and much more. Order online until 9 p.m. or take a study break to walk in from grounds.  

We heard you...and have put the classic Pigskin back on the Corner menu!

4. The Virginian, Charlottesville, VA

The Virginian, also conveniently located on the Corner near grounds, has been feeding the late-night hungry since 1923. The Virginian is open every day of the week until 2 a.m. and serves a wide-variety of American dishes, with an entrée menu available after 5 p.m. 

5. Insomnia Cookies, Charlottesville, VA

Insomnia Cookies doesn’t bury the lead: it’s a cookie shop that sells cookies late into the night. Open daily until 3 a.m., Insomnia will deliver cookies to your door. Customers are also welcome to come in to pick up their orders. 

6. The College Inn, Charlottesville, VA

Another corner favorite, the College Inn is open until 2 a.m. most days of the week and 1 a.m. on Sunday. They deliver late if you’d prefer not to leave your late-night study sessions. They’ve got a wide variety of salads, subs, pizza, and cheesy bread, and Greek food.

8. Boylan Heights, Charlottesville, VA

Also within walking distance of grounds, Boylan Heights Burger Bar is open late. They’ve got incredible burgers, fantastic salads, and apps that’ll make your late nights worth the lack of sleep. 

9. Shebeen Pub and Braai, Charlottesville, VA

Open until midnight, the Shebeen Pub and Braai serves South African inspired dishes in the downtown Charlottesville area. The restaurant is open until midnight, but this is better for a late-night date than an all-night study session. The food is a little higher class and a bit more expensive, but you get what you pay for.

10. Citizen Burger Bar, Charlottesville, VA

Ask anyone in Charlottesville what the best burger joint is, and nine times out of ten you’re looking at a Citizen Burger. The Citizen Burger Bar is open late and has a sit-in menu as well as a to-go menu. You’re free to customize your burger or go with one of their specialties—either way, one bite of one of their burgers and you’ll forget about how much more work you have to do on that paper. At least until the burger is done.
