Rogers Park neighborhood guide

Rogers Park may be situated on the far north side of Chicago, but its restaurants, bars and attractions are worth the trip

Zach Long

Located on the northernmost edge of Chicago's city limits, Rogers Park is the gateway to suburbs such as Evanston, Skokie and Wilmette. It's also a neighborhood with a rich history, founded in 1809 at the intersection of two prominent Native American trails. Today, it's best known for housing Loyola University, which means you can find cheap eats, cool shops and some great ethnic food (including Jamaican cuisine). Explore the best shops, restaurants and bars in Rogers Park with the help of our neighborhood guide.
