Unfortunately, Boston is nothing compared to cities like New York and LA when it comes to nightlife. You would think that with the dozens of colleges in the Boston area, the city would stay open later, but even recent efforts to keep the subway open later have failed. Thanks to Blue Laws and liquor licenses that end at 1:00am, the city shuts down pretty early. However, it is possible to find a few hidden gems for late night eating. Check out the best ones below.
For those who think fast, casual Mexican chains are the way to eat burritos, you obviously haven’t tried Maria’s. From the outside, it definitely looks like a hole-in-the-wall, and it is, in the best way. Their menu is never-ending, filled with Mexican favorites like burritos, quesadillas, and fajitas. One of the best parts is the price – you can order a taco for as little as $3.
Hours: Kitchen open until 1:00am

Tasty Burger is a fairly new establishment on the Boston food scene, as they opened their doors in 2010. Since then, they’ve opened five more locations. The Fenway and Back Bay locations are open until 2:00am, and in Harvard Square on weekends you can order a burger until 4:00am. It’s also one of the most inexpensive meals in Boston. You can order their basic burger for just $5.95.

For college students in Boston, Bova’s Bakery is a staple that you need to know. While the debate over the best cannoli in the North End may live on, Bova’s is the only place you can get one in the middle of the night. They’ve been family owned and operated since 1932, and three generations have served their traditional Italian recipes. Besides sweets, be sure to try their Sicilian pizza, homemade breads, and other savory bites. If you get hooked and move away, not to fear. They’ll ship their food all over the country!
Hours: Open 24 hours
