24 Hours Eats Near UCLA?

ObseleteOscar Jun 11, 2010 12:08 AM

The title explains it all! I'm a little hungry and will be heading there soon and was wondering where I could get a quick bite! And on second thought, I really wouldn't mind a late night snack as well...

    Wakasan is open until 1:30AM a few nights. There's a 24/7 pho place, but its supposed to suck. Haven't been there myself.

    1929 Westwood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90025

      The only 24 hr place in the Village is Denny's (and maybe Jerry's Deli - if that branch is 24 hrs?). While I'm not a big fan of Denny's it has it's place in the 24/7 pantheon. Near, but a drive there are places like Norm's http://www.normsrestaurants.com/ down on Pico Blvd., Canter's Deli on Fairfax, Dolores Coffee Shop on Santa Monica Blvd., Du-par's at the original Farmer's Market, Big Tomy's, Izzy's Deli and Pacific Dining Car in Santa Monica. All those are 24/7 places and are not a too distant drive from UCLA.

          The Benito's on Santa Monica Blvd. at Federal, adjacent to the car wash isn't 24/7 any longer (probably hasn't been for at least a couple of years now).

              I pedaled by Big Tomy's about an hour ago on my "evening constitutional" and their parking lot was filled with cars, and the inside of the "restaurant" was filled completely with cheering World Cup fans. Guess having the tournament way down south in the RSA is damn good for business up here in LA for the 24/7 places. Nice to see.

          Lamonica's - not 24 hours but open late on the weekends.
          Noodle Planet - same not 24 hours but open late.
          Subway - 24 hours! Ok, not funny but meets your criteria.
          Other than those mentioned already - slim pickin' for 24 hour joints.

              Pedaled by at 4:22 AM this morning on my homeward leg (love screaming down Beverly Glen in the dark!) and, not only were they open but there was a group of 6 Asian guys eating and having a good time. This is the same mini mall just south of the car wash with Eduardo's. Looks like a good option for early noodles. Thanks for the heads up.

              You might want to take a look at this other 2007 thread on late night dining (not all by UCLA but still may come in useful to you in the future): http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/4290...

              It got revived and updated recently (scroll down to see the recent additions).
