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

After a soccer game took the family here as this chain often receives rave reviews. Well, where to start,, the place was crowded with dirty tables and overflowing litter bins. The ordering process can be confusing and the stuff seems to come out in random order. The sandwiches were just OK, the fries were cold and small and the coke... More

This was closed and easy to get to as well and Love the chocolate Cake and Grilled tuna sandwich. They do give your moneys worth. The decor is retro, I love looking at the vintage items there.
