I walked into this location in St Charles next to my hotel. The locals were super excited that this was my first time in a Portillos and I tried to pay for my food because they wanted me to try more than one thing. I had a beef and cheddar and cheese fries I think. Crazy good!

You cannot beat the flavor and taste of a Portillo"s hot dog and fries! It is crazy ridiculous that you can get a hot dog, large fry and small drink for about $5!!! And DO try the Italian strawberry shortcake! Wow! What a perfect dessert--Light from the angel food cake, but rich from the whipped cream marscapone!! We sure wish... More

Used to be a great place for us to get a nice beef sandwich, but they are posted with a no guns sign. So criminals can now illegally show up without worrying about running into an upstanding citizen with a consealed carry license. Too bad.

While Portillo is famous for its Italien beef, do try the delicous tuna steak sandwhich. It comes grilled on a bun. A side of their tasty fries and a drink and you got yourself a meal.

Stopped by here for a casual dinner while traveling for business. The set-up is casual and well-run, with ordering at the counters and self-seating. I had a chicken noodle soup and a chicken and fruit salad. Everything was fresh and tasty and very reasonably priced.

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
