Always good

It's our Chicago go to. We love the beef and chocolate cake. My wife loves the chicken ceasar pita. To be honest everything is good.

The food at Portillos is always great. Usually the service is at least adequate. On my last visit, ordered 2 dogs and a beef. That's it. For some reason, my order got lost 3 times, despite 2 different managers involvement (one of which was totally disinterested) in helping fix the issue. My companions were completely finished eating by the time... More

The best Italian sandwich and dogs ever. You should try the new combo that has Italian beef and sausage. Delish but don't forget to ask for it dipped and with hot peppers. They aren't as hot but worth the extra flavor. Packed as always but a trip to Chitown with out Portillos is not complete.

The only thing that was interesting about Portillo's was the atmosphere being like a marketplace, the service efficient, and the novelty of seeing someone prep a line of 10 hot dogs. I am sure there's better hot dogs and sausages that the City has to offer. Just that Portillo's was easy. The search continues.

Classic Chicago hot dog joint...there is only ONE way to get you dog at Portillo's "Chicago Style" That is Poppy seed bun, Vienna dog, Vienna mustard and relish, chopped lettuce, tomatoes and sport peppers.

Had high expectations and it met them. Food is really good. Both on the dogs and burgers side as well as the ribs and sandwiches side. We hit it during a big rush so it was a little nutty with lines and trying to hear the loudspeaker call your number but that's just part of the deal. Great atmosphere inside.... More
