Whether you are an insomniac or just looking to soak up some of the alcohol in your system, everybody has a weakness when the night turns into morning. In our annual Best Of Kansas City issue, readers deemed the Best Late-Night Food to be Chubby's on Broadway, because as Charles Ferruzza wrote in 2000, "in midtown, no one ever needs to go hungry after midnight."
Beyond Chubby's, readers also sought comfort in the arms of chains -- Denny's and Taco Bell were popular choices for the fourth meal. Here are four more choices from the readers, each of which is the go-to place for plenty of people in the city:
Pancho's on Main -- The staple for quick-mex offerings in Kansas City. We've all been here late at night. We'll all be here again.
El Pueblito -- It's open until 4 a.m., a full four hours after reverse happy hour ends at midnight on Friday. This is where you go to cheat on Pancho's.
The Jerusalem Cafe truck -- If you wanted to explain happiness to an alien, you could just point to the before-and-after line on the sidewalk next to the truck in Westport.
Helen's Just Another Dive Bar -- This Northland bar can help to ease the pain of a bad night at the casinos. The kitchen is open til' 2 a.m.
