A Chicagoland Classic. Menu has something for everyone, including the kids. Italian beef sandwich is one of the best in all of Chicagoland. Chopped salad is awesome if you're going healthy. A little pricey but this is not "fast/junk food".

Portillo's is one those places with consistent quality form place to place but the one in St. Charles comes with some of the most attentive and pleasant staff of any of the area Portillo's. The speed of service is excellent and everyone is just hospitable. Given a choice...this is the one I would pick for the great service.

If your going to have ribs or Italian beef this is the place to go. The ribs fall off the bone and are so juicy. If you never had an Italian beef sandwich try there's first. So juicy and tender.

Always a good meal at Portillo's. Recently visited their new store in Arizona near the Cub's Park. Same quality and good taste.
