Open Late: A Guide to Late Night Eating in Houston

For many of us, some of our best memories are from late night dining with friends. Sometimes sober, sometimes not so sober, but always a blast. There’s nothing like eating something super satisfying at 2AM – cheers to the heroes that work the late shift and make it happen. Here are some of our favorites.
