We’ve been doing all this late-night snackin’ — that’s how the new Harry Styles song goes, right? 

With the sun setting earlier than some of our favorite restaurants’ daily operating hours, we’ve been finding ourselves constantly looking for the best food options after dark. 

Rather than taking a trip to Mickey D’s around the corner, we’re rounding up a list of local eateries open late in the Alamo City.
