Best Restaurant For Late-night Noshing

1st Place: Topper’s Pizza

2nd Place: Perkins

3rd Place: El Patio Burrito Express

Outside of a frozen pizza at a bar, there’s very few late-night options for sustenance in the Chippewa Valley. But, thankfully, what we do have is top-shelf. Topper’s is an institution inherited from college (for many of us) that continues long afterward in soon-to-be-regretted decisions when you’re starved in the middle-of-the-night. I’ve seen people attack Topperstix by the fistful, on their hands and knees, like a zombie on brains. Perkins is the classic sit-down option when you’ve still got your sobriety and wits about you in the middle of the night, and you’re just craving some flapjacks and pie. El Patio’s Burrito Express is a newcomer, but definitely on the rise. They started cranking out reasonably priced, made-to-order grilled burritos after midnight on Water Street and bargoers went nuts. Now they’ll do it whenever you want … which is often. — TK
