Portillos has the best ItLian beef sandwiches around. You won't find anything like it anywhere else in the US. They also have a great hotdog and burgers and ribs and salad. It is a must when in the Chicago area.

This isn't a restaurant, it's a very loud burger and hotdog cafeteria with tiny tables. Won't be back.

Great food, great service at high-powered and efficient service - For this patron, accoustics are far too noisy to enjoy the food - We prefer ordering through the drive-through, and eating in quieter surroundings - but the Food is fun, delicious and great, every time! I do recommend Portillos!

All Portillos restaurants have a theme. This one is loaded with 1920's antiques and artifacts Known for their beef sandwiches. A separate salad preparation is available for those of you who don't want meat. All the food choices are good.

Portillos beef has been my "standard" since I first ate there. Also like the hot dogs, burgers, fries, etc. It is my "happy meal" when I treat myself to a dipped Portillo's beef sandwich!

Portillo's have many locations around Chicago and suburbs and all of them have drive-thru lines. Why? Because OMG - they are so good. From the char-broiled burgers w soft buns, to the Chicago style hot dogs (mustard yes! but please hold the ketchup!!), It. beef sandwiches (dipped with sweet peppers), to chix, salads (great variety), ribs and even veggie sandwiches...
