Are fast food restaurants open on New Year’s Eve?
From staying up late to food cravings, many fast food restaurants will be open on New Year’s Eve. While many fast food restaurants will be open, the hours will vary. So, if you want to ring in the New Year with Taco Bell, KFC or McDonald’s, you might want to get your food orders in before the ball drops.
Since December 31 isn’t technically a holiday, the majority of restaurants will be open during the day. But, many places may close early. With large gatherings not recommended for the New Year’s Eve celebrations there isn’t the need to grab those Jack in the Box tiny tacos at 2 a.m.
It is best to check on a restaurant’s app to see the specific open on New Year’s Eve hours. Given that many restaurants would like to give their employees the opportunity to be home with their families before midnight, the open 24 hours light might not be lit.
Here are a few restaurants that should be open on New Year’s Eve, but hours will vary.
- Boston Market
- Burger King
- Carl’s Jr.
- Dairy Queen
- Firehouse Subs
- Jack in the Box
- Jimmy John’s

- Taco Bell
- White Castle
While many of these fast food restaurants will be open on New Year’s Eve, you don’t necessarily have to hit the drive through to enjoy those tasty burgers, chicken sandwiches and fries. Many food delivery services will be available.
Some food delivery services are offering free delivery, discounts and other special offers for the holiday. Check with the food delivery services for discounts and special offers.
