To our friends, family and community:Sorry for our delayed post, we have been working to convert us to our next "COVID mode." From now until the State of Illinois gives us the go-ahead we will be offering:CURBSIDE CARRYOUT (same as it ever was)HEATED TENT DINING (best we can until the weather breaks)CATERING (same as it ever was)PRIVATE EVENTS (up to 25)To say this year has been a challenge for our families is an understatement. BUT we cannot thank you enough for how resilient our staff and you all have been. Our staff has stepped up in so many ways and has allowed us to pivot, adapt and survive. Many of the faces you see in our curbside are the same you have seen working at our front desk, in our dining rooms and in your parties over the past 40 years. They are part of what makes us Lino's and we are lucky to have the best "family" in the business. YOU have taken these adjustments to our business and loved us as you always have for the past 48 years. We'd like to kiss you on the mouth and Thank You.....but its COVID so we will do it virtually. But really, Thank you isn't enough. Your support has been appreciated more than you know and we love you.
