Support Chicago’s Black-Owned Restaurants
Over 100 Black-owned restaurants in Chicago you can check out for outdoor dining, delivery, or takeout.
Written by

Show solidarity with the Black community by putting your money straight into Black-owned businesses. One incredibly important, tangible way to show up is by supporting Black-owned restaurants, which is why we’ve put together this list of Chicago’s Black-owned restaurants, organized by neighborhood, that are currently open for delivery, takeout, and outdoor or indoor dining.

This is not just a list of Black-owned restaurants we should all be supporting today, or tomorrow, or next week. These are restaurants that we should be supporting, always. This guide is just one step. It’s also just a starting point - we’ll be updating this list constantly. Please email us at chicago@theinfatuation.com to let us know of restaurants that should be included on this list, and we’ll work to get them added as quickly as possible.

Hopefully, this list is helpful. But the following sites have been compiling Black-owned guides for years, and are go-to resources for Black-owned restaurant information: Black Chicago Eats, Black People Eats, Seasoned And Blessed, and Chicago Black Restaurant Week.

Please also consider donating to organizations fighting for racial justice - like the ACLU, NAACP, Know Your Rights Camp, Black Visions Collective, and Reclaim The Block, as well as My Block, My Hood, My City.
