Starting on May 29, Romeoville will enter into Phase 3 of Governor Pritzker’s Restore Illinois plan. This means, as long as they follow Illinois Department of Public Health safety guidelines, non-essential businesses like manufacturing, barbershops, and salons can reopen. Health and fitness clubs can provide outdoor classes and one-on-one personal training and retail stores can open with capacity limits and face coverings. It also means bars and restaurants will be able to offer sit down service in outdoor seating sections.

“We are eager to get residents back at their favorite restaurants and businesses,” said Mayor John Noak. “We will work with our businesses to open further in a safe manner.”

As of this writing, the following Romeoville businesses have submitted plans for new/expanded outdoor seating or will be opening their existing outdoor seating:

  • Panda Express
  • McDonald’s (778 S. Weber Rd)
  • McDonald’s (1300 Marquette Dr.)
  • Culver’s
  • Fat Ricky’s
  • Doc Watson’s Smokehouse
  • McWethy’s Tavern
  • La Tortuga Feliz
  • Stone City Saloon
  • Checkers
  • Mongo McMichael’s
  • Las Islas Marias
  • On the Rocks
  • Bee Brothers
  • Buffalo Wild Wings
  • Niko’s Breakfast Club
  • Mickey’s Grille & Pub

This list of restaurants will be posted on our website and updated as we receive more seating plans. Businesses that wish to add or expand outdoor seating will have their permit and application fees waived (up to $1,000). No additional permits are needed for businesses that currently have outdoor seating and follow state guidelines for social distancing. More information available at romeoville.org.
