Ten Best Late-Night Eats in Palm Beach County
Like most any place, South Florida takes on a completely different look and feel late at night. In cities like West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, and Delray Beach, it's generally after the bustling happy hours have given way to dancing and drinks or when the snowbirds turn in after early bird dinners. It's late night -- when the streets are filled with hungry patrons looking for a place to sit, tuck a napkin into their shirts, and find some grub to soak up all the booze.

The best options always seem to be the ethnic spots, tiny pizza joints, retro diners, or hipster dives. Occasionally, it's a sit-down restaurant touting a special after-hours menu -- or that thing of beauty, the reverse happy hour. Need help finding a spot near you? Here, Clean Plate Charlie presents Palm Beach County's best late-night dining spots.

9. The Blue Boar Tavern

If you've ever been to the Blue Boar Tavern in West Palm Beach, then you probably already know it's the type of place you go for three things: (1) a cheap drink, (2) a good time after all the other places have shut down, or (3) good food past 2 a.m. It's all these reasons (and more) that keep a lot of people coming back for more. Blue Boar purveys homemade chicken noodle soup, beef quesadillas, char-grilled cheeseburgers, fries, and a full lineup of classic greasy bar bites until the wee hours of the morning. Try comfort food at its finest with AJ's Super Grilled Cheese, a gooey amalgamation that sports three kinds of cheese (mozzarella, American, and cheddar), bacon, tomato, and sautéed onions. The Blue Boar Tavern serves food until 4:30 a.m. seven days a week.
