This is a book that lists 24-hour restaurants throughout the USA. The original idea comes from The Original Pantry, 9th & Figueroa Sts. In Los Angeles. Opened in 1924 by Dewey Logan, it has never closed. In fact, there is no lock in the front door. It claims to serve over 6,000 meals a day. I first walked in the door in 1969, when Dewey Logan was still at the cash register (they still only take cash). They are renown for their breakfasts.
There are a number of 24-hour chains:
The Waffle House
Steak & Shake
These will all be listed alphabetically by state and then city with address, but perhaps not a detailed review.
Below is the start of my list. Do you know more? In your city or others you have visited? Send then to me!
If you’re a frequent traveler and need such a list, print this out. I would LOVE to have your review of any of these 24/7 restaurants. Thanks

Baldwin Park, CA 91706
The Original Pantry
9th and Figueroa
This is one of my favorite restaurants of all-times and is the key restaurants behind this book. Opened in 1924, the Pantry has never closed. It doesn’t even have a lock on the door! Especially wonderful for breakfast, they serve huge portions of your basic meat-and-potato’s menu.

Categories: Seafood, Steakhouses, American (Traditional) Neighborhood: Westlake the City to get breakfast. They’re open 24-hours-a-day, and serve breakfast 24-hoursa-day, so it’s always an option if you’re in the area. $25 would get me a huge country breakfast (pancakes, eggs)
1001 S Vermont Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90006
Category: Korean Special Offer Hodori. Either you hate it or love it. Or somewhere in between. I guess. Well anyway, Hodori has been around pretty much forever. It was one of the first 24 hour Korean restaurants in LA and its
138 Highland Avenue
Manhattan Beach, CA 90266
Categories: diners, american (traditional) Neighborhood: manhattan beach best casual late night choice. Good quality food. Open 24 hours. This is a better quality choice than most “open 24 hours” restaurants. The menu has many choices, the food is good, the bathrooms
1608 N Cahuenga Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90028
Categories: diners, bars, breakfast & brunch Neighborhood: hollywood Happy hour. Kitchen 24 has a few issues to work out. You know it’s bad when Cahuenga smells better than the restaurant you just walked out of, what a mess. A 24 hour restaurant on cahuenga is a great idea

Finally! We found another 24 hour Korean restaurant similar to Nakwon and Hodori! Namsan is really great and its on the other side of Korea Town. Sometimes Nakhon and Hodori is just too far from

10 dollars for the first 2 hours then 5 bucks every 1/2 hour afterward, and we paid 15 bucks for parking in total. ridiculous, just park across the street for like 8 bucks….wayyy better and no
8300 Sunset Blvd
West Hollywood, CA 90069
http://www.standardhot…restaurants-bars/24-7-restaurant/over-night/ This menu looks like 1/2 the stuff on it doesn’t have any meat. Maybe if you’re a vegan… No, not even a vegan
222 N Western Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90004
open 24 hours? No. I typically like to overdo breakfast when it’s eaten at a restaurant — omelets with everything you can stuff into an omelet imaginable, pancakes piled with every fruit suitable
Geary San Francisco

Sparky’s 24 Hour Diner

Breakfast and pizza are their focus, although they do a good burger or sandwich the rest of the time. Hand whipped shakes are a nice touch.
Silver Crest Restaurant
340 Bayshore Blvd.
San Francisco CA 941
If you’re on your way to or from the airport and need a good breakfast or lunch, here’s a great place. It’s about halfway from downtown and the airport so just program your GPS. Absolutely no frills, basic basic. Strangely, no soft drinks.
