When it comes to dining in Springfield, IL with your family, sometimes you’ve got to take your food to go. Having portable dinner menu options ensures that everyone is well-fed and happy. There’s no delay in traveling from one location to the next because the food you’ve chosen for lunch dining travels well.

Food You Can Eat While on the Go

Sometimes, you don’t have time to visit the dinner buffet. You need something fast, affordable, and filling. You don’t need to forgo flavor and quality, though, for a portable bite to eat. You can skip the fast food and instead order from a gourmet restaurant with its banquet hall. Some of the best portable food to try with your family includes:


Delicious Caribbean Jerk Mahi Mahi Tacos with fries, soup, and alcohol that can be eaten on the go in Springfield, IL.

The Caribbean Jerk Mahi Mahi Tacos don’t disappoint. Filled with slaw, mango salsa, jalapeno, and a chipotle crema sauce, these soft-shell tacos are seasoned to perfection and easy to eat while on the go. Looking for a fish taco combo? Our shrimp tacos are filling, delicious, and easily contained by a tortilla that serves as a vessel for the food. A seafood taco is another easy way to eat while traveling.


Sandwiches are a classic on-the-go option for guests who aren’t able to dine in. At Loukinens’ on 4th, we have a variety of sandwich options to choose from including The Cheesy, our classic Roast Beef Dip, the New Orleans Style Shrimp Po’Boy, and of course, a hand-carved Reuben. If your mouth is watering, place an order over the phone and pick it up in no time.


Piled high with toppings, there’s a protein for everyone to enjoy. From turkey and crab burgers to traditional beef, we’ve got options that satisfy your every craving for something hot, fresh, and portable at Loukinens’ on 4th in Springfield, IL.
