Classic Americana

Large complex with loads of different dining styles under one roof (hotdogs, BBQ, Italian, etc) - with communal ordering. Inexpensive, options to dine in or eat out. Fast service, quality food & inexpensive too.

The food was AMAZING! Chicago hotdog and Italian beef sub were to die for. Service was great--very friendly people serving you. Very very affordable too. Definitely get the hot dog and the Italian beef sub! My husband and I loved it!

I always eat multiple meals here when in Chicago. Had the Combo for the first time and it is very good. Maxwell Street Polish is my all time favorite though.

I have been going to Portillo's at a few locations and it has always been a good experience.

Just took the whole family because there is something for everyone from 4 to 64. You pay a premium in my estimation, but the service is spectacular, the order is accurate and the food is delicious. Love the beef/sausage combo sandwich and the hot dog with EVERYTHING.

This is a great place to try every kind of street food Chicago has to offer. Obviously we went for the hot dogs, but everything else looked tasty as well. We'll definitively come back next time we're in town.

The food was sub par. I had higher expectations but I thought it was more of a fart food restaurant Chicago style!! Fries were outstanding but other than that just ok. It was a fun set up to see though!
