late night cheap eats

I’m driving through Atlanta on the way to Florida this Thursday night. I’m interested in any recs for cheap eats that would be open late night.
The first place that came to mind was Taco Cabana at Piedmont and Cheshire Bridge. Think they're still open 24 hrs. Not in the same league as El Rey del Taco, but more convenient. I play it safe and have one go-to thing on their menu- the green chicken enchilada platter. They make their own thick, chewy flour tortillas that are really good too.
Other than that, intown mostly bars come to mind- Vortex, Euclid Ave Yacht Club, Porter. Vortex in Midtown is close to 75/85. The others aren't too far if you take Freedom Pkwy to get to Little 5 Points. They will be smoky, though.
If you have a car with visible stuff in it, be extra careful. Actually, be extra careful in general.
And Holeman & Finch is open til 1 or so, but they aren't cheap. Good though.
