5 star fast food

Great beef! Chopped salad is awesome but I recommend saying easy dressing! You can beat a classic like Portillos! Good place for a large group with kids.

My wife and I love this time of year when we can get our Pepper and Egg Sandwiches. This time I went through the drive through on a Friday night and it was very busy...I am never sure how they do it but they are very organized and move you through the line very quickly. The food was outstanding as... More

We love Portillo's! The salads and pasta are delicious: the more traditional hot dogs, fries and Italian beef are yummy also. My favorites are the chopped salad, the chicken Caesar pita, and the baked mostaccioli. When our kids were younger, they loved the hot dogs and cheese fries. The service is efficient, and the food is always well-prepared. Always a... More

I got a basic cheeseburger. This local chain does largeish burgers, crispy on the edge with good cheese. Wife got the chicken sandwich and found it dry and tasteless (and we were hungry). About $15 overall with a drink and yummy crisp onion rings. Worth a fast food meal compared to the big national chains.

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.

You can't go wrong with choosing any of the many Chicagoland Portillo's locations, but this one in particular is one of my favorites. As expected, the food is amazing, especially their classic Chicago hot dog, and their hot beef is one of the best in the Chicago area too. The thing to take note of with this location is the...

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.
