---I felt compelled to respond to this. For starters, not everyone "wants" to eat at such a late time. Usually for me, the only time we eat after 10 pm is when we're just coming back from an out of town trip, or were busy from afternoon till then and don't have anything at home to eat. It's not like we DECIDED to eat so late. It just happens that way due to circumstances. Secondly, diners are not always readily available. I have lived in 3 different states in my time, and only 1 area that I lived in had a diner nearby (which was actually a ½ hr. drive). I have yet to see one where I'm currently located, and from the last state I came from. We tend to travel around our area to see what's available. So far, within a 4 hr. distance, we haven't come across a diner yet. So again, it's not just CHOICE of eating so late and wanting to eat at a particular restaurant. If the restaurant is going to close or shut down earlier than what the hours state, they should be kind enough to put a sign up on the door so customers are aware BEFORE they enter. I can certainly understand their reasonings for doing so, but a notice before entering is appreciated---and has been done at several restaurants in my area btw.
: If you want to eat that late... go to a diner. It costs a lot more money to keep the full staff of a restaurant on the clock, not to mention keeping everything on in the kitchen and dining room, than the place is actually making from your dinner bill. Especially if it had been a slow night. Go out to eat at a normal time, or suffer the horrible service.. or go to a diner, they're open 24 hours..
