Late night/24 hours in Pinellas county

2nd post- any recommendations for 24 hour restaurants anywhere in Pinellas county? I know there are some Waffle Houses and Denny's, but I'm hoping there may be something more.
Any diners? Chinese? Taco stands? Hot dog joints?
I'm a night owl, usually working late/swing/graveyard shifts.
Anywhere from Dunedin to St Pete would be good, because I'm right in the middle, by Largo. Nothing here but McD's.

Also, anybody know where to get a monster pastrami sandwich nearby?

      The only place I know of is Vito and Michael's Pizza out on St. Pete Beach. It's open until 3 every night except Sunday and they make good pizza. The Greek place next to Jannus Landing is open until 2 some nights but it may only be when there's a big concert going on.

        Thanks, Jeff. Appreciate the tip.
        No 24 hour diners, huh?
        It sounds like this definitely isn't the city that never sleeps.
        Is there late night stuff in the Tampa area?

        1. re: bigpaul5

          Mema's Alaskan Tacos in Ybor is open til 1am regular nights and 3am weekends. Three Coins Diner in Seminole Heights is open super-late, even later on weekends.

    2. Paul,

      The only one I know of is the Village Inn. And it is only open 24 hrs. on Friday and Saturday I think. Best to check each location first.



      1. Bigpaul 5 - Nothing is coming to mind on either side of the bridge. I know the Fly Bar in downtown Tampa is open till 1 am http://www.flybarandrestaurant.com/ta...
        and Ceviche's down in downtown St. Pete http://www.ceviche.com/

          The Pita Pit in Tampa is a late night option. Some nights it's open until 4 am.

        2. Try Kristina's Cafe, 3590 34th St. (also known as US 19 !). Open 24 hours, this is a great greek diner, clean, with good food. Breakfast is best - 24 hrs. Just had a Greek Omelette, 3 eggs, spinach, feta, tomatoes. Nice home fries, well buttered -real butter- toast.

          1. St. Pete Diner, 1101 34th St N- open 24 hrs.

            Nothing fancy, just an old fashioned diner with good food. Eggs, hash browns, omelets, burgers. Yesterday I tried the fried steak sandwich - pretty good.

            1. i dont know anything about good late night food, its been a problem for us as well. but ive had good pastrami sandwiches and reubens at corned beef corner, down at the corner of tyrone/park/bay pines. (same shopping center as outback)

              1. 24-Hour Diners:
                Egg Platter. US 19 just south of Gandy. Several in Pinellas County. Cute murals on the walls.
                Kristina's Cafe
