The places that are special aren't so special when you live near them. That was me and Portillo's. I knew I could always go there and get a great Italian beef sandwich and milk shake along with good rings on the side. But it's been a long time since I lived near Portillo's so when visiting friends, I jumped at... More

Been a long while since visiting...too long. Love Portillo's. Great Chicago dog and milk shakes. The Italian Beef is out of this world. Long lines but worth the wait. And I must say, the bussers working the dining area are quite pleasant. Talkative, friendly and attentive to needs. Nice touch. Wish Portillo's was closer to home.

Italian beef sandwiches are not my favorite, but the one I had here was among the best. I would ask for more jus, as it comes a little dry. You must have sweet peppers with it. The crinkly fries were excellent, as was the chopped salad, which is huge. Worth the stop, without question.

I had the best polish dog with grilled onions and mustard, side of crispy, crunchy fries and a slice of their signature chocolate cake. It was to die for... Hands down the simplest, yet most tasty meal I've ever had!

Portillo's is a must visit every time we come to Illinois, we miss this restaurant down in Florida. Their hot dogs and beef sandwiches are out of this world. If you never have visited Portillo's, I highly recommend it, you will not be sorry, wish they open a franchise near Orlando. From time to time my son have them ship... More

Portillo's if a family owned chain that operates just in Chicago and the suburbs. The food is fantastic, served quickly by a friendly staff. Each property is unique but the quality and service at each is the same. Don't be put off by the fact that you have to walk to the counter to place your order. You can also... More

If you have never had an Italian Beef sandwich from here before then you have never had a great Italian Beef sandwich. The thing I miss most about living in IL is not having a Portillos around. However, I was a bit disappointed in this one because it was pretty dirty inside. Food was great though!

I have had chopped salads at many places across the country but none compare to Portillo's It must be their "special" house dressing. Decent portion for the price.

After having lived here for five years, when I come to visit, I have to have deep dish pizza and of course a Chicago style hotdog. Portillo's has so many locations it's easy to find one wherever you are. Their hotdogs are the best! We also enjoy their hot Italian beef sandwiches. The ambience is fun and they have great... More
