We’ve all been there.

It’s 11:30 p.m. on Thursday and you’ve just finished up the most painful study group of your college career. You’re looking for some sustenance to erase the memories of the past five hours, but the Grill is the only place open on campus.

Unfortunately, you are running low on meal points. Even worse, the employees at Taco Bell and Domino's know you by name. You’ve sworn off Top Raman, but desperate times call for desperate measures. Life is looking down and you are only getting hungrier.

Never fear, The Beacon has come to your rescue. Read on for our favorite Portland late-night bites:

Known for their unique vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, Sizzle Pie is a must after a downtown adventure. With a quirky atmosphere and creative menu, this pizzeria features slices like “Good Luck in Jail” and “Pig Destroyer,” as well as a wide selection of beer. Too tired to leave your bed? Sizzle Pie now delivers.

Devil’s Dill Sandwich Shop 1711 SE Hawthorne Blvd Open: Tuesday through Sunday: 5 p.m. - 3 a.m. Delivery Times: 5 p.m. to 2:30 a.m.

Le Bistro Montage 301 SE Morrison St Open Sunday through Thursday: 5:00 p.m. to late and Friday and Saturday: 5:00 p.m. – 3:00 a.m.

Did someone say macaroni and cheese? Located in what was once the Royal Hotel, Le Bistro Montage’s Cajun-inspired cuisine and famous mac and cheese have been given rave reviews by Yelp users. Too full to finish your meal? The waiter will wrap your leftovers into a surprise foil creation.

Santeria 703 SW Ankeny St Open Monday through Saturday: 11 a.m. - 2 a.m. and Sunday: 11:30 a.m. - 2 a.m.
