Ok, just to give you a bit of a background, I get off work at 3am. A lot of times I'm barely making the drive home, and the last thing I want to do is climb back in the car and go get some food. I wanna lay on my behind, catch some late night TV and open a warm box of, chinese, blah!

I enjoy chains like pizza hut or dominos, and I do prefer italian cooking, like calzones, but that late at night? I'm not picky. I just wanna eat some crap food and pass out! It is frustrating trying to search for a place so does anybody no a place in the Columbia Heights/Fridley/New Brighton Area that will deliver? Sorry, I'm sure people may rag on me for indulging in the cheap stuff, but it's 3am and I don't give a s***!

  1. The only place to my knowledge in St. Paul that delivers anything till 2-3 is Pizza Luce. Not sure about MPLS.

    Pizza Luce
    1183 Selby Ave, Saint Paul, MN 55104

    1. Not exactly the same, and won't work with pizza, but you could order a few different Chinese take-outs and fridge them, then you'll just have to microwave it when you get home. If you order a few, you'll kinda have a choice. It'll be quicker than actually waiting for delivery, since all you have to do it dump and nuke. And given Chinese foods high sodium content, the stuff has a pretty long fridge shelf life.

      I really don't know of any places that deliver past 3AM. Like a response already said, Luce goes till the 2-3 range, but I don't think they go later then that, and probably not even until that on weekends. In NYC, sure. But here? Not likely. I think pre-order and nuke later might be your best option.

      1. Get carry out from the Flame. I can't think of anything better at that time.

          I'm assuming you mean Flameburger? That was going to be my suggestion as well.

          2534 Rice St, Saint Paul, MN 55113

            Absolutely...Flameburger is as good as it gets in the middle of the night.

              Totally agree....just didn't want anyone to confuse it with Flame at Rosedale.
