Taco Bell has taken over the late night munch scene.
Before the food chain opened its doors almost two years ago, many Rogers Park residents, especially Loyola students, had no choice but to use a food delivery service like Grub Hub if they wanted something to eat late at night.
The other fast food spots in the neighborhood – Five Guys, Chipotle, Potbellys, and bopNgrill – all close their doors at 10 P.M.
Taco Bell is open as late as 3 a.m., when many Loyola students are up late studying (or not studying) and need to refuel.
The food chain has even incorporated the ability to order online, so the food can come right to one’s door.
The wait is usually short. Kelly S., a Rogers Park resident, says, “Even though it’s very crowded on the occasions I’ve gone past 10 P.M., they get my food faster than they do in the middle of the day.”
