Mesa Pizza remains a popular Dinkytown destination amid the pandemic. They offer a unique selection of pizza by the slice. Workers prepare food, wearing masks and practicing social distancing, on Saturday, Sep. 12.

Campus is still a bit of a ghost town, but if you find your stomach rumbling between classes, these on-campus restaurants are still here for you. A&E took a walk around the University to find out which campus favorites are still open for business.

Many campus restaurants will be reopening with new hours starting Monday, September 21. If a restaurant is not listed, the University does not yet have a set plan for its re-opening. Face masks are required in all campus dining areas.
