I stopped by on someone else s recommendation and I'm so glad I did. They have a great system where the have people outside at the drive thru window helping take orders and it goes so fast and efficient. All I tried was the Italian Beef sandwich and it was great! I got it lightly dipped and it was so... More

Kids and grownups alike live this place Even if you don't believe in hotdogs, this is the time to bend the rules. If you are still hungry, try the chocolate cake, nothing, and I mean nothing comes close-yum!

The hot dogs were perfect. Skip the Italian beef sandwich; the hot dog was much better. The salads are large and fresh. The milkshakes and malts are a must-try. This place is inexpensive, quick, and a great choice while in Chicago.

I must say....I LOVE CHICAGO STYLE HOT DOGS!!! Portillio's is a great place to get them. They have lots of options for those that want something different, but why would you? They are fabulous!!! Décor is cool, food is great and fast. My only complaint is that they are so busy, that sometimes they don't keep the tables wiped down... More

My husband and I came here after many recommendations to visit Portillo's for the hot dogs. As per our recommendations, we got the classic hot dog with all the toppings. It was delicious. We would def recommend to others to visit here.

We stopped in for lunch after a sudden storm so we had no idea what we were walking into. There are 3-4 different counters where you order, depending on what you want. Pizza and pastas at one counter, dogs and sandwiches at another, beer and wine at a third. We tried chili dog (good), Italian beef (very good), tamale (very... More

Portillo's appears to be a production style fast food place. You place your order at one window and pick up at another when they call your number. It took a VERY long time for our food to be ready. I ordered the cheddar beef croisant. When it finally arrived it was soggy from the moisture. It had lots of beef,... More

The offering is certainly a step up from the McD's of the world. My wife's salad was wonderful and I had a beef of a roll that was very very tasty.
