In brief: Depends
The onset of symptoms with food poisoning depends on the causative organism. In many cases the illness begins in a matter of hours, but in some cases it can be much longer than that.
There are over 200 different causes of foodborne illness. Main thing is to ensure hydration and usually it'll pass. If you have high fever, severe abd pain, bloody diarrhea/vomit, inability to drink, see your doctor.
