We were getting take out, and heard the drive thru line would be crazy but decided to brave it anyway. It was impressive! It was helpful that we had checked online to decide what we wanted ahead of time but they kept us moving. Oh, the food was good too - yummy salads, each with a poppy seed muffin. We... More

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.
