University of Texas at Austin: Best College Food Spots

University of Texas students are lucky to live in a city that hardly sleeps. No matter what time the munchies hit you, you’re always within close proximity to any number of delicious food options. Below are 10 of our favorite late-night spots. 

1. 24 Diner, Austin, TX

The 24 Diner never closes, making it a perfect late-night go-to food spot near the University of Texas. The diner works hard to avoid the greasy spoon stereotypes, instead choosing local and organic fare. 

2. El Taquito, Austin, TX

 Open until 2 a.m., El Taquito provides Austin, Texas, with some of the best Mexican food around. The menu is extensive. You’ll find all of your favorite Mexican dishes, plus specialty plates and breakfast options.

4. Easy Tiger, Austin, TX

Easy Tiger is an interesting combination of bakery and beer garden in Austin, Texas. Both sides of the business close at 2 a.m. nightly. The bake shop offers breads, pretzels, sausages, corned beef, and more, while the beer garden provides cheeses, craft beers, wines, and spirits.

5. G’Raj Mahal, Austin, TX

G’Raj Mahal began life as a food truck, but quickly grew in popularity. Its success has led to a brick and mortar space with an outdoor patio, stone front yard, and indoor café seating for their delicious Indian fare. And of course, they’re open late. 

6. Casino El Camino, Austin, TX

The Casino El Camino in Austin, Texas, is your straight-up, old-school neighborhood bar. Come in often enough, and everyone will learn your name. The food is tasty, the jukebox full of tunes, and the price is right for late night snacking.

This is what happens when I get to choose the meeting spot. - - - #dirtysixth #bestburger #austin #howtobeatamonday

7. Hoboken Pie, Austin, TX

Hoboken Pie brings New Jersey-style pizza making to the Austin area. Open until 2:30 a.m. nightly, Hoboken is happy to deliver late. 

8. East Side King, Austin, TX

East Side King is the name of two hip food trucks serving up delicious, hot Japanese street food. You can even order online to skip the line at the South Lamar location. But for late-night diners, you’ll want to find the Liberty location—it’s open until 1:45 a.m.

9. Justine’s, Austin, TX

Let us warn you up front: Justine’s food is delicious and they’re open late, but their official website is a little not safe for work. Guests will enjoy some finer French dining at this top-notch establishment until 2 a.m. 

Craving: Tuna Tartare, with herbs from the garden. 🌸🌱 Shot by @oanhlife, merci, chérie!
