What's open late nite for dining?

This weekend, Texas plays Texas Tech. Game time starts at 7pm. SO...what's open and will serve past 11pm? Matt's stops serving at 11pm. Last year, we headed over to El Erroyo, but alas, they stopped serving early also. We eneded up at the Whataburger drive in on S. Congress with the rest of the 100,000 attendee''s from the football game.
HELP us with the inside skinnly on the late nite spots to grab something after the game.

      The much discussed Justine's serves food until 1:30am. Located on 5th St east of Pleasant Valley.

            Thai Passon on 7th and Congress is open until 2AM. They started opening late to accommodate all the service workers getting off after the clubs closed. The Fisherman's Soup is off the chain!

              Forgot about Thai Passion downtown. Definitely the best one!

              I like most of the suggestions so far, and frequent Justine's and Parkside for late night dining.

              When I'm out past two, I sometimes find myself at La Mexicana on S. 1st. Nothing fancy for sure, and one does need to know some Spanish, but usually satisfying and quick.

                there's always Katz's. Haven't eaten there in 10 years, so no review.

                  Katz's is best when your drunk. Like Star Seeds used to be.
