REOPENING DOWNTOWN ELGIN
Explore options below for ways to support our local businesses and come together as a community. Beginning on May 29th, some restaurants and businesses are reopening following strict CDC guidelines. Others are still dedicated to take out, delivery or curbside delivery, online shopping and virtual programing or have limited opening capabilities for the time being. Please remember, always follow social distancing guidelines.
As Downtown Elgin Coronavirus information evolves, details on this page will be updated. Local businesses are working hard to innovate in these challenging times and the Downtown Neighborhood Association of Elgin will continue to support them. Together we’ll get through this. THANK YOU FOR YOUR ONGOING SUPPORT.

ORDER TAKE OUT
When you’re tired of eating home cooked meals or are short on time remember most Downtown Elgin restaurants are still serving food for take out, delivery or curbside pickup. We’ve compiled a listing of restaurants with links to their Elgin take out menus, contact information and available ordering options. Is Coronavirus a Concern with Take Out?
