Late night snacking: best places near UB campus to eat after midnight


It’s after midnight – you could be in the library, at a party with friends or Netflix and chilling.

No matter where you are, you’re probably hungry.

In the early hours of the morning, some of your usual favorite places to eat may not accommodate this late night hunger. Here are some that will take care of that rumble in your stomach after the clock strikes 12.

Jim’s Steakout

Located on Main Street, Jim’s Steakout is the perfect place to grab something to eat late at night. Whether you just got booted from The Steer after last call or just wrapped up a mid-week study session, this eatery – in walking distance from South Campus – is most likely open. With hours from 10 a.m. to 5 a.m. Monday through Sunday, Jim’s is almost always serving food.

Jim’s Steakout has a big menu with a variety of items. One of the most popular is its award-winning “Stinger Sub,” a steak sub topped with chicken fingers in your choice of sauce.

If the thought of steak and fried chicken has your stomach turning, don’t worry, Jim’s Steakout has healthier options as well. It offers a grilled chicken sandwich as well as a variety of salads, so you are sure to find something you’re in the mood for.

Just Pizza

Although Jim’s Steakout has a variety of food, something they don’t have is pizza. There are times when this is a deal breaker – you cannot help what you crave – and for those times, take yourself to the corner of Main Street and Northrup Place and into Just Pizza.

With more than 75 varieties available in sizes from medium to jumbo and some by the slice, Just Pizza will almost certainly have the pizza you are looking for.

It offers specialty pizzas, traditional pizzas and almost 30 different toppings you can add on top of whichever pizza you choose.

Despite its name, this pizzeria does offer more than “just pizza.” Wings, chicken fingers, subs, tacos, salads and an array of appetizers are also on the menu and all of them are available for takeout or delivery.

Just Pizza’s takeout hours are 10 a.m. to 12 a.m. on Sunday through Wednesday and 10 a.m. to 3 a.m. on Thursday through Saturday. Just Pizza also delivers to areas surrounding UB’s South and North Campuses everyday – from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Sundays, until 11:30 p.m. Mondays through Wednesdays and until 12:30 a.m. Thursdays through Saturdays.

IncrediBull Pizza

You’re on North Campus and it’s past midnight. You’re sick of everything in the Elli and you need a hearty meal but you don’t have any cash on you – just Dining Dollars. You’re in luck – IncrediBull Pizza delivers until 2 a.m. and you can pay in Dining Dollars.

You may recognize the tiny cars that zip around North Campus as they deliver straight to dorms, apartments or offices without any extra charge for the special delivery.

You can order pizza, wings, subs, salads and more from IncrediBull Pizza without even leaving your room. Along with cash and credit cards, Dining Dollars, Campus Cash and FlexiBULL Bucks are also accepted as forms of payment.


Maybe you prefer your pizza inside out with all of the ingredients tucked nicely into a calzone. If this is the case, Calios is the place for you.

Located on Main Street, Calios offers a variety of different calzones from hamburger, chicken, and steak calzones and more to dessert style calzones. Calios also offers other snacks like wings, fries, and mozzarella sticks, every day from 4 p.m. to 4 a.m. both for takeout and delivery.

It’s also known to get crowded with students looking for a meal to end their weekend night.

Calios does deliver to North Campus, but getting your food to Amherst in a timely fashion gets more difficult on the busy weekend nights. After trying their calzones you might decide it’s worth the drive.


Ying’s, located on Eggert Road between North and South Campus, is open for takeout or delivery to the areas surrounding both North and South Campuses. Ying’s is open from 10:30 a.m. to 4 a.m. on Monday through Friday and 12 p.m. to 4 a.m. on Sundays.

Its menu has a large variety. Although Flavor and Fortune voted Ying’s one of the top 100 Chinese restaurants in the United States, their menu includes almost any food you can think of. Along with Chinese favorites, Ying’s offers pizza, wings, hamburgers and hot dogs, Italian dinners and Greek dinners, soup, salads, appetizers, seafood, desserts and surprisingly way more. Unless you’re in the mood for caviar or gourmet French cuisine, chances are Ying’s has just what you want.
