Best Burgers and Fries

When i want to have a burger and fries fix, I go to Portillo's. I travel around the country, and find Portillo's the very best. Oh -- if you want something else, try the chopped salad!

When I go to Portillo's it's very hard to decide what to eat. I love their Chopped Salad and hot dogs and I enjoy the Italian Beef and sausage. Best drive through service for any fast food restaurant!

It doesn't get any better than this for Chicago style hot dogs and Italian beef. Fast service too!! This particular location is one of my favorites.

People that we know from out of town or transplants who come back often say that their first stop is going to be Portillos. I'm not kidding. My daughter is away for her freshman year of college and she told me, "I miss Portillos, my family and my bed". In that order. Great dogs, outstanding Italian beef, chicken sandwiches, salads,...

Best "Chicago-style" hot dogs in Chicago area. But don't even think about using catsup on the dogs! We've been going to Portillo's throughout the suburbs for more than 30 years for Italian beef sandwiches, hot dogs and char grilled hamburgers. Also the whole family uses Portillo's catering services. Never fail, always good.

If you're looking for an Italian beef sandwich, give Portillo's a try. There are many locations, so see if there is one near you. Also, the cheese fries are to die for. On my better days, I eat a salad. Try the chopped salad or the pecan chicken salad. Yum!

One of my favorite places, love the chili hotdogs, and tonite the Big Beef. Saturday nite, big carry out order and they were 5 deep waiting. Took15 minutes to get the food; carry out may be the weak link in a fine tuned rest. business. Big beef was soggy after being wrapped up so long, I will be more careful... More

During this Thanksgiving visit to the in-laws I had the opportunity to try three different restaurants and had an Italian Beef sandwich at each. Portillo's was by far the worst. Here's why: 1. The sandwich itself was the smallest. 2. Probably half the meat the other places served. 3. Taste was bland. 4. The peppers were big chunks (chopped everywhere... More

This is by far the best food I always eat. From beef to even chopped salads, everything is made fresh and taste very good. Also if have never tried their chocolate cake, it is a must!! Their drive thru is super fast even at a dinner or lunch rush time.
