From nightclubs to cabaret shows, one of Miami's central attractions is its nightlife scene. And, as tourists and townies venture across the Magic City into the wee hours, local restaurants are forced to keep up by offering eats and drinks throughout the evening, and sometimes into the early morning.
According to a recent study by Yelp, Miami's ten most popular late-night delivery restaurants are all located in Miami Beach. Based on data from Yelp's delivery service app Eat24, Menin Hospitality's taqueria, Bodega, receives the most delivery orders between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m., compared to other featured restaurants.
Sriracha House, CheeseBurger Baby, Pizza Rustica, and Safron Mediterranean Grill made Eat24's top five, delivering everything from pizza and burgers to noodle, gyros, and shish kabobs across Miami-Dade. Al Basha Grill, Sushi Song, Menin Hospitality's Halves & Wholes, Pizza D'light, and Krispy Krunchy Chicken rounded out the top ten.
Depending on the restaurant, deliveries are available as late (or early) as 6 a.m.
The list demonstrates that Miami craves late-night cuisine from tried-and-true restaurants with longstanding reputations. Interestingly, the eateries on the list are mostly value-friendly, making a case for people wanting good food without breaking the bank.
All restaurants included in the roundup are rated with at least three stars on Yelp. And for the purposes of Eat24's data, late-night dining was defined as any business that offers delivery until 2 a.m. or later at least two days a week.
