Welcome to The Crestwood! We’re so glad you’re here, and to make your BYU student living experience even better we thought we’d introduce you to all of the amazing restaurants in your backyard. There are so many great eateries here in the Provo area, so we narrowed it down to five eateries that are within a 5 minute drive of The Crestwood.
This local business that started as a food truck has expanded to five different states, and we can see why they’ve grown so fast. Waffle Love legitimately has the best waffles around. Made from dough with Belgian sugar pearls kneaded in, even a plain waffle will make your mouth water. You can also try their menu full of savory waffles made from their croissant waffle. Located just across State Street from The Crestwood, Waffle Love is for sure a resident favorite.
With an offering of 19 different burgers on the menu, and 23 different sandwiches, there is something for everyone at Burgers Supreme. If you’re feeling adventurous try out the Hawaiian burger, or the green chile cheeseburger. Just looking for a classic cheeseburger? At $5.59 these gourmet cheeseburgers can’t be beat. Craving a milkshake? Burgers Supreme is open 10:30am-10:30pm, and just a short 4 minute drive from The Crestwood.
Bam Bam’s BBQ
Bam Bam’s BBQ is all about quality meats, and you can’t rush quality. Bam Bam’s BBQ is proud to not have a drive through or sell french fries, because homecooked quality BBQ is what you deserve. Their meats are sold by the half pound, and the sizes for their sides are single, pint, and a quart. If you’re looking to have a big group of friends together, but you’re no barbecue expert, head to Bam Bam’s BBQ and enjoy some brisket and coleslaw.
Sweet’s Island Place
Sweet’s Island Place is a great place to grab some Hawaiian food. This Hawaiian grill offers four different types of meat: teriyaki BBQ chicken, katsu chicken, kalua pork, and kalbi rib. For sides you can choose from rice, mac salad, noodles, and fresh pineapple. Sweet’s Island Place offers the coolest daily specials, like Smoked Spareribs Thursday, and Poke Bowl Saturday. Poke bowls are only offered on Saturdays, so if you want to try out this fun dish grab your friends this Saturday and make the 5 minute trek from The Crestwood to Sweet’s Island Place.
Tandoor Indian Grill
Tandoor Indian Grill serves up authentic Indian flavors with many vegan and gluten free options. You have to try the garlic naan bread and the lamb vindaloo. You just have to. You can also try three different flavors of lassis, which are creamy smoothies. If you have specific diet needs, they are more than happy to accommodate. If you’re looking for quality Indian food in Provo, Tandoor is the place to be.
We hope you get the chance to try all this great food during your stay here in Provo!
