If you are looking for quintessential Chicago fare, head to any of Portillo's locations. Great Chicago Beef (I prefer to dip vs "wet" the sandwich) and best Chicago Hot Dogs. They also have a great chopped salad and awesome chocolate cake for desert. The atmosphere is casual and fun. Great value for the money - a must when you are... More

The Italian Beef sandwich tasted fresh, hot, and arrived quickly. The dining room is pleasant. I will eat here when back in town.

I have heard many a things about this place but have never been, so on our trip to the inlaws we stopped 3 times the food was so good. We had a mix of things and everything was great including dessert. Fair prices but it is Naperville so maybe its cheap.

the parking lot is the only reason I don't go to this location more often. Excellent Italian beef sandwiches. The salads are large and very good which I have had several times. My friend from Atlanta, GA was really impressed with the ribs.

Great salads, Italian beef, and THE best chocolate cake on the planet! Fast efficient service every time. Enough said. (And the rest of the menu is good, too!)

My first stop in Chicago is always Portillo's for Italian Beef! When my kids were younger they always wanted to try the burgers and other things. Now it is 3 beefs and 2 big beefs - add mozzarella and dip 'em! Got 6 lbs to take back south with me for my next craving
