I had an Italian beef and it was very tasty. Portillos knows how to handle busy traffic so you can get in and out fast. Their fries are so much better than Micky Dee's.

Portillo's beef sandwiches have been my favorite for years, but they are really skimping on the beef. Try Teddy's Red Hots in Downers Grove or in Darien. Excellent flavor and a and generous sandwich that won't be making you wish you had ordered some fries with it. During my last visit to Portillo's, I had disappointing service. I waited for... More

I had heard about "the Chicago hot dog" and Portillos. I am in the area for a meeting so I checked it out. The description and excellent reviews are 100% on. The atmosphere was fun and the food great. Between me and my co-worker we tried the Chili dog; the cheeseburger; fries; onion rings and chocolate cake. All were delicious.

Always go to Portillo's when I'm in the Chicago area and I'm never disappointed. Would be thrilled if they opened a location in the Houston area (hint, hint).

When I am in the Western suburbs of Chicago, my first stop after checking in at the Westin is Portillo's. Always great food and served up quickly. You can't go wrong with any Portillo's.

I'm an out-of-towner and had been hearing about how good this place was. However, I wasn't overly impressed. We tried the Italian Beef Sandwiches and Chicago Style Hotdogs. The beef sandwiches were decent, but I'm not sure I'd be in a rush to eat another. I wasn't impressed at all with the hotdogs, but who am I to judge what... More

I had lunch in portillo's and had the double cheese burger meal, it was a good meal and I really enjoyed both the taste and the design of the place. When I visit the states again I will for sure visit this place again.

Ok sandwiches... Try the meat balls and the Chicago style hot dogs. They open until late and always busy.

It is soooooooo good! I had the Italian beef sandwich with green peppers, one of my daughters had the chicken sandwich, and my other daughter had a cheeseburger. Not a complaint from any of us. I will definitly be going back there again.
