Great variety from sandwiches to salads to pasta, etc. Onion rings are great. Not the place to go for a quiet get together but great for quick service, food options and affordability.

It is a real treat to eat at Portillo's. If one is in the mood for hot dogs or hamburgers you have come to the right place. In the mood for an Italian meal ? You have also come to the right place. The price is right and your group can find something to please everyone. Service is fast and... More

This is a casual themed restaurant. The prices for what you get are outstanding. They have a lot of menu choices. I love the Chicago Style hot dogs and the Italian Beef. Yummy! They also have a Barnelli's. Barnelli's is slooooooooooow to get food, so if you are with someone that orders Portillo's and you order Barnelli's they will be... More

Celebrated with family as my grandma was celebrating her family! My grandma in her nineties enjoyed the Portillos Hot Dog as she has every year! She eats every part of it and even the fries and none is leftover. I personally love the hot dog and my other family enjoyed the Italian beef. The Italian beef is also amazing as... More

My whole family love this place. The shakes are amazing, so are the hot dogs and salads. My favorite though is a tamale topped with chili and cheese. Heaven!

One of the better sandwich shops in Chicagoland area. If you like your burgers greasy, you have food your heaven. If not, the Italian beef sandwich and Chicago Dogs are excellent.

If you are looking for a Lenten special at Portillo's without the heavy fat of the pretzel bun or the Croissant, your better bring your wallet. For the short time of Lent, Dick Portillo's Menu is offering a single scoop of tuna fish salad in a small plastic bowl for the absurd amount $4.69! This is a slap in the... More
