The best authentic Chicago food!

Is there anything better than Portillo's? Every time I am in town I simply have to get a Chicago style hotdog and cheese fries! Their beef and cheddar croissant and shakes are so good too! Don't be discouraged by a full parking lot or long line for the drive thru, everyone knows how good Portillo's... read more

Had lunch here. Chili cheese dog, fries and a chocolate shake. It was good but I don't consider it anything exceptional. This is a fast food restaurant. For as long a line as there was upon arrival, they have very quick service.

I LOVE the chopped salad and muffin that Portillo's has. They have great service and normally fast service. In the mood for a salad, try theirs!

I don't usually eat at the restaurant, but get carry out or use the drive through. Food is always very good. My family loves the Chicken Pecan Salad. Excellent Chicken Caesar also.All of their items are very good. I love the hot dogs and onion rings.Parking can be difficult. Even though the drive-thru gets quite long at meal times, they... More

Always a fun place to stop for lunch or dinner. Good food at a reasonable price and you just can't beat Portillo's beef. Be prepared for a little noisy. Feel comfortable in a very casual atmosphere. Truly a Chicago icon

Food is outstanding, always. Even though it's a large regional chain, the Italian beef is solid. Fries are fresh and simple. Service is competent and food typically doesn't take long inside (the drive-thru is always backed up whenever we go, so we always go in). Parking is often difficult around the lunch hour, but turnover happens quickly as it's not... More

I don't really do chain restaurants, but this one is different because of their vast menu. I love the chopped salad, which can be shared. Their beef is the best - period. Have catered it for many a family occasion. The gravy is delicious, and the shaved beef is very light. Don't miss the chocolate cake. I have bought many... More
