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

Great beef sandwich and cheese fries. Cake shakes are great. Chicken wraps are great. Chicken dumpling soup is really great.

I love Portillo's. The food is really good. My favorite is the Italian Sausage. They even go out of their way to add cheese if you want. The parking lot is a little small though and it does tend to get crowded during lunch time when everyone is lined up at the drive thru. Love the 50's décor. Great service.

This is absolutely my favorite casual dining spot. The cheeseburgers are wonderful, as are the French fries. The decor is the 50's as is the music. The menu is varied and all of it is just GOOD!

Best Dogs, Very good beef, Chocolate cake to die for. If you want good tasting, fattening, fast food, this is the place.

You just have to love this place. The atmosphere is retro and fun and the food is good, honest American fast food. We ordered up some Chicago hot dogs and milkshakes and everything was fast, fresh, and just plain good eats. There is a reason why Portillo's is a local legend.

We have heard abotu it for years and finally got to try it and we enjoyed the hot dogs and shakes especially. The fried and onion rings were decent too. No wonder they're a success!

You know when you walk in that this is a fun place. Good Chicago-style hot dogs. Not that long of a wait after you order. Great music overhead. Very good variety on the menu
