Enjoy the Best Po’Boys in Crest Hill to Go

Originally called oyster loaves, the po’boy sandwich originated in the late 19th century. Though they’re often associated with the Bayou, this delicious sandwich actually got its start in port cities such as San Francisco as well as New Orleans. Served hot, the po’boy features roast beef or seafood on a French baguette. If you would like to try some of the best po’boys in Crest Hill, local restaurants have you covered. Here are three spots near our Crest Hill apartments that are offering pickup or delivery.

Chuck’s Southern Comfort Cafe 

A local favorite for over 20 years, Chuck’s is home to a unique blend of Mexican cuisine and good old Southern cooking. Featured on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, it’s known for its daily specials and large portions as well as refreshing beverages. Try the catfish po’boy, topped with lettuce, tomato, Creole mustard marinade, and roasted red pepper mayo. Complete your meal by pairing the sandwich with Cajun fries. Order today for pickup or DoorDash delivery. 


Built on the foundation of “elevated comfort food, classic whiskey, and bourbon cocktails,” NWB is a favorite among locals and visitors alike. In the kitchen, the chefs prepare a menu that is always seasonally fresh. They create dishes from scratch and include hints of flavors from Asia and the Mediterranean. For dinner, order the shrimp po’boy. The breaded shrimp are tossed in a Cajun sauce and then topped with lettuce, garlic aioli, and grilled beefsteak tomatoes. Place your order for pickup.

Jimmy’s Grill

Jimmy’s has something for everyone. The chefs source from local suppliers whenever possible. They create everything in-house, including their popular dressings and tangy sauces, and they also serve delectable desserts from DeEtta’s Bakery. Try the shrimp po’boy with fries or freshly made chips. Jimmy’s Grill offers daily takeout late into the night.

After you sample the best po’boys in Crest Hill, head outdoors and explore a local nature preserve. You’ll find miles of trails, and you may even spot rare birds or whitetail deer.
