Rogers Park is one of the most diverse neighborhoods in Chicago — economically, racially, internationally — and its restaurants reflect that. From small, family-owned diners and taquerias to big fast-food chains that cater to students at Loyola University, there are plenty of dining options, and each one has its own fiercely partisan following — for good reason.
As of June 11, Chicago restaurants have fully reopened and the city has lifted restrictions on capacity and social distancing. However, on July 30, the city issued guidance recommending that everyone wear facial coverings while indoors. For updated information on coronavirus cases, please visit the city of Chicago’s COVID-19 dashboard. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following safety guidelines. The latest CDC guidance for vaccinated diners during the COVID-19 outbreak is available here; dining out still carries risks for unvaccinated diners and workers.
