You’ve been hitting the poker tables or the clubs all night, it’s late, and you’re hungry. But don’t head to Wawa just yet — Atlantic City’s casino-hotels have plenty of options for good late-night dining. Here are five places to satisfy your late-night cravings, whether you need noodles or a cupcake.

Tony Luke’s, Borgata
Sure, everyone knows the Borgata is classy, but what isn’t classy about a delicious, freshly made cheesesteak on a soft and fresh roll? And you might as well get some fries with that —and onion rings — at this Philly hotspot that also has a home under the poker room at the Borgata.

Earl of Sandwich, Showboat
While we’re dubious about the claim that the family who invented the sandwich owns this establishment, we’re happy to claim a pile of freshly roasted meet between two freshly bakes pieces of bread. It’s open 24 hours.

Noodle Village, Bally’s
The Noodle Village in Bally’s is surely one of the tastiest Asian options, with outstanding noodle soups available as a lighter offering late at night. Or warm up despite overly air conditioned casinos with a piping hot cup of green tea.

Bill’s Burgers, Harrah’s
Head to Bill’s for a Fat Cat, ranked by CNN as one of the top 10 burgers last year. The burger has caramelized onions and American cheese, like you’d expect — but the twist is it’s on an English muffin.

Borgata Baking Company, Borgata
Back to Borgata for dessert. This spot is for the sweet toothed, with homemade gelato, moist and flavorful red velvet cupcakes and a bevy of other freshly baked items made throughout the day and available 24/7 on Fridays and Saturdays, and until 2 a.m. during the week.
