Late-night eats in Lakeview

Cheesie's Pub & Grub
958 W. Belmont Ave. 773-388-1574
Grilled cheese sandwiches with unorthodox fillings—think tater tots, mac 'n' cheese and chicken tenders—were made for a satisfying post-bar meal. Pizzas with toppings inspired by the bar's signature grilled cheese sandwiches also are available, and the kitchen's open until 5 a.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Pick Me Up Cafe
3408 N. Clark St. 773-248-6613
Open around the clock on weekends and until 3 a.m. on weekdays, this cute café serves breakfast all day, plus "sammitches" (sandwiches both classic and signature) and "pizzadillas" (a pizza-quesadilla hybrid).

Dimo's Pizza
3463 N. Clark St. 773-525-4580
Ready for the weirdest slices in Wrigleyville? You could order plain old pepperoni at this creative pizzeria, but then you'd be missing out on crazier toppings such as s'mores, Philly cheese steak or chicken penne alfredo.

Lucky's Sandwich Company
3472 N. Clark St. 773-549-0665
Fries and coleslaw aren't side dishes at this bar; instead, they're standard fillings stuffed inside every sandwich. The kitchen's open until 1 a.m. nightly and 2 a.m. on Saturdays, and you can order double meat anytime if you're seriously hungry.

The Diner Grill
1635 W. Irving Park Road 773-248-2030
This tiny 24-hour greasy spoon in a converted train car is best visited after a night of boozing. Its signature dish is The Slinger, a chili-covered heap of hamburger patties, hash browns and eggs.

Backwoods
3335 N. Halsted St. 773-935-9663
Tucked into the back of Boystown bar and restaurant Wood, look for this late-night pick-up window serving steaming-hot cones of double-fried Belgian-style frites with delicious dipping sauces until 1 or 2 a.m. most nights. (Enter on Buckingham Place.)

Pie Hole Pizza Joint
3477 N. Broadway 773-525-8888
Unlike typical by-the-slice joints, this East Lakeview pizzeria, every slice is made to order. The kitchen is open until 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday and midnight the rest of the week, and there are options for those who eat vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free.

Diva Thai & Sushi
3542 N. Halsted St. 773-857-0571
When the usual late-night fare won't do, try this BYOB Thai eatery-sushi bar hybrid, where the kitchen cranks out dumplings, maki and noodle dishes until 4 a.m.
