I've eaten in several different locations and the food and service is consistently good in any store. Fast friendly and good. Best Italian Beef and great Chicagi-style Hot Dogs.

This place is great. I am so glad that they opened up a couple franchises near Phoenix, AZ. I am from Chicago but plan on moving to Phoenix area and this food made it easier. The food is fresh and tasty. I would recommend this joint to everyone. It's not fancy just great food.

I tend to drive thru portillo's Summit location at least twice a month. The food is always good however be sure to check your order before you leave. When they are very busy they tend to forget items. The chopped salad is always a favorite as well as the beef n' cheddar croissant.

Portillo's I Love it! The best italian beef you'll ever eat! I have been going to Portillo's for years. I can not see one and pass it by. OMG! You can get an italian beef on french bread or croissant; and that's my favorite. Chargrilled Chicken sandwiches, some of the best salads you'll ever eat, bbq ribs or chicken; the... More

One of the best fast food restaurants in Chicago-land, but can be a bit expensive. Eat in and enjoy the old school decor. Treat yourself...the Chocolate Cake is the best. There is nothing I've tried that I haven't liked. A MUST when in Chicago!

This is the only place in the United States that is truly a 'DRIVE-THRU' restaurant. Sure you can eat inside when its beautiful out. But, if its raining or a 30 below windchill factor just pull up to the drive thru. No matter what the weather there will be 5 or more people taking your order at car-side, another taking... More

The Italian Beef and Strawberry milk shakes are so good, I am not sure I ever even had a hotdog here!

I eat at Portillos once a week at the Pulaski or the downtown locations in Chicago. I absolutely love the food which has a Chicago flare to wit the Chicago style hotdog and the Italian beef. The combination (Italian beef and sausages) is my all time favourite . My kids love the ribs but currently I'm hooked on the peasant... More

It doesn't matter what you order from Portillo's, it will be GOOD! The service is good and the food is better. You have to get a piece of the chocolate cake! It will keep you coming back for more!
